MediaWiki skin theming: mild and dark modes[edit]

See mw:User:Aron Manning/Skin themes for details and usage. Mild and dark mode css overlay for Timeless and Vector skins (so far). Work in progress.

  • Easily customizable color palette through ca. 30 css variables.
  • Includes a few layout optimizations: full-width Timeless skin and thin (one-line) header bar for Vector, MediaViewer scrolling and metadata.
  • Note: Custom background colors hardcoded in templates and wikitext make those areas unreadable in dark mode (bright text on bright background). Rules for these are added on a case-by-case basis. Mild mode is readable in such cases.
