Theming support

I think you are all doing a fantastic job on Coda :clap:

I am suggesting that at minimum, a dark theme for the application is added. Thanks


:clap::clap::clap: for something easy on the eyes early in the morning!


Thanks @Peter_S for the :clap:!

Totally hear you on the themes - we’ve actually mocked a few different ways we could do theming with the product but haven’t landed a model yet. Are you looking more for personal use / ease on the eyes, or something enhancing the presentation of docs to others collaborators?

I would love to be able to add custom images (or images from a Coda bank) with an opacity parameter.
Also, simple theme like dark could be nice.

@evan, any update on this suggestion ? Dark theme (=night mode) would be very appreciated, especially in winter with long long nights…


Totally agree, I’d love to see a dark theme. It’s especially important/helpful for those of us who need higher-contrast interfaces.

I am using the darkreader extension which works relatively well but would love to see builtin support for a dark theme.

Dark theme = MVP Feature :wink: Please prioritize this

I would also like to see a more compact theme, and an option to change default text size. There’s a lot of extra space between rows, and between columns, and the font size could be smaller (or bigger, in some cases) and there’s no way to change that.

Also, choice of color palettes, or customizable color palettes, to match corporate colors for branded apps.

Is there really no dark theme available?
I really cant understand why such essential features are treated as an afterthought.
A dark mode should be the default setting imho.

I would have really preferred to use coda.
However, there is a similar product that has a dark mode available and I refuse to use eye cancer inducing bright UIs.

Sad that it would come down to such a basic feature not being available.

I am here just to bump the dark mode request. Compared to where Coda was on day one, users needing dark mode is probably a good sign that it has become a really integrated part of our lives, and that’s a good thing :slight_smile:.

Knowing the Coda team, they’ll get around to this as quickly as possible, once they’ve added the myriad other features that we’ve requested of them :grateful_smile:


I think having a “table” theme would be nice. Like you can with Excel pivot tables.
