GitHub Dark Mode

Ahmad AwaisAhmad Awais

I’m a developer. I code at night. I love the dark mode.

GitHub Universe is happening right now. There’re so many amazing updates that I’m excited about. Let’s talk about a few from Nat’s Keynote.

๐Ÿ“ฎ GitHub organizations with billing already set up can now sponsor open-source developers using the org accounts. This should help.

๐Ÿฅณ GitHub can now help you automatically merge pull requests where certain conditions, that you set, are already met. Let the robots handle it.

๐Ÿ’ฌ GitHub discussions is now in public beta, enable it for your repo right away and move the discussions off GitHub Issues. It’s a free forum that you control, where you can mark answers as Accepted; it’s like your own StackOverflow for the repo โ€” that you control. Pretty fun.

๐Ÿ“ข There are several updates for GitHub Continous Delviery, a new major release of GitHub Enterprise, and lots moreโ€ฆ

โ€ฆI know, I know what you’re thinking. Awais you sold me on Dark Mode and you’re talking about everything but Dark Mode. Sure, sure I get it.

Even though I’m one of the GitHub Stars and that I got to attend and speak at the GitHub Stars Nova 2020 conference (internal event) โ€” even I didn’t know GitHub was going to announce a Dark Mode.

So, yes, I was fairly surprised. In a good way. Here’s my reaction to Nat’s annoucnent of GitHub’s Dark Mode. Thank you, GitHub.

Peace! โœŒ๏ธ
