How to enable Linear Dark Mode in 3 easy steps?

Are you looking to get Linear Dark Mode enabled? This help page explains what is dark mode, and how to enable the Linear Dark Mode website version.

Linear is an online project management application that helps you build and manage software projects. This has been used by multiple startups and high-growth environments like UberAirbnb, and Coinbase.

What is Dark mode?

In the past few years, the dark mode has become increasingly popular, especially among young people. While the initial appeal of dark mode was aesthetic, it is now understood to have numerous benefits for both digital and physical health. In particular, the dark mode can reduce the strain on your eyes, help you sleep better, and even save battery life on your devices.

However, most dark mode implementations are not truly dark. They simply invert the colors of the interface, which can actually be more jarring on the eyes than a traditional light interface. A linear dark mode, on the other hand, uses a dark color palette that is specifically designed to be easy on the eyes.

How to activate Linear Dark Mode?

  1. Open your Linear App website
  2. Go to your account settings page, and add the themes section change the color you want to see for  the background, text, and accent
  3. And you are done

Furthermore, you can set any theme you wish. For example:

  • Ash: #FFFFFF,#44494D,#EDEEF3,#44494D,#475BA1,#FFFFFF
  • Midnight: #0F0F10,#EEEFF1,#151516,#EEEFF1,#D25E65,#FFFFFF
  • Dawn: #2A222E,#EEEFF1,#382A3C,#EEEFF1,#A84376,#FFFFFF
  • Pale: #292D3E,#EEEFF1,#292D3E,#EEEFF1,#7D57C1,#FFFFFF
  • Barbie Dreamhouse: #E2DAF1,#593E74,#FCDEEE,#593E74,#B8FAFA,#8B6BC7

Benefits of Linear Dark Mode

There are many benefits to using a linear dark mode, as opposed to a traditional dark mode.

First, linear dark mode is easier on the eyes. The colors are specifically chosen to minimize strain, and the overall effect is less jarring than a traditional dark mode.

Second, linear dark mode can help you sleep better. The dark colors are less stimulating to the brain, making it easier to wind down at night.

Third, linear dark mode can save battery life on your devices. Dark colors tend to be more power-efficient, so your devices will last longer on a single charge.

Overall, linear dark mode is a more health-conscious way to use dark mode. If you’re looking for a dark mode that is easy on the eyes and good for your health, linear dark mode is the way to go.
