If you use a light theme for your IDE then...

I don’t, like, hate you.

But it don’t understand you.

    I try to avoid extreme ambient darkness while using a light theme, and extreme ambient lightness while using a dark theme. And even then, not all of my programs have a dark theme, so there's usually a smattering of light levels on my monitors. So my eyes don't explode, I try to get up every hour to stretch and look outside for a few minutes.

    @irene subjective for yourself ofc :D

    I can't look at light themes for my own eye issues and I find it much less distracting personally

    @irene That's just a case of hopping on a bandwagon (weird phrase to say that they are hopping on one side for the sake of joining the club).

    I don't dislike light theme, I used solarized light at work for example - I just don't agree on black on bright white - you need a warm colour at the back and a soft dark shade on the front otherwise it's going to cause eye strain.

    18:01 -> 6:59 -> Dark theme

    It's very very simple. It's a personal preference nothing more.

    Reasons I prefer light themes,

    1. Most websites and apps have light backgrounds. Switching between code (dark) and web/apps (light) is too stressful for eyes.

    2. Laptop screen is glossy. Ambient light messes up readability with dark themes.

    When using light themes, I keep laptop brightness to the minimum and it works best for me.

    @irene Thanks :) For some time, I used to use those browser plugins that would invert colors of light websites. But deep inside I felt I was killing the originality of those websites. So I stopped that and instead changed my code themes to light ones.
