Ever since the early developer previews of iOS 13, I knew I was a fan of “dark mode.” Perhaps it’s the potential for minor improvements in battery life on OLED displays or just the contrast of lighter text on darker backgrounds that appeals to me. I knew that I wanted to dark mode “all the things” slowly but surely. Based on a recent poll I conducted, 65% of the ~2,000 people that responded preferred a dark mode experience too.

This website serves as the backbone of my social media presence as it is fully controlled by me. In preparation for starting my life as an attending, I’ve spent the last few weeks streamlining the interface for simplicity with more emphasis on content rather than distractions. In the last few days, I’ve also adjusted some CSS3 code to transition web elements on RK.md to a color scheme based on Google’s dark theme material components. Woo! ๐Ÿ˜€

With this framework tailored to my liking, I hope you all enjoy it too! Drop me a comment with feedback and if you run into any glitches or have suggestions! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really enjoy your content. That being said, I was hoping that you you reconsider using a black background on your pages. This is really hard on the eye. The previous white background was much easier on the eye.

    • Hey Ahmad! I really appreciate the feedback! The majority of my readership prefers a dark-mode layout, so I adjusted the stylesheet code accordingly on RK.md. Eventually I’ll probably have some sort of toggle to flip back and forth between dark and light modes, but for now, you can certainly view my content through an RSS reader of your choice. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    • Hey Ahmad! I went ahead and added a CSS media feature to automatically detect if a user prefers a “dark” or “light” mode experience based on their operating system’s configuration. You should be able to see the light interface automatically. If not, you may need to clear your browser cache of this site. Let me know what you think!
