WP Dark Mode 10k+ Active Installation Journey: We Are Now a Family of 10000+ Members

The wait is finally over! Yes, we are now a proud member of the exclusive 10k club. Confused about what we are talking about? Well, we have a piece of good news for our users. We have reached the milestone of WP Dark Mode 10k+ Active Installation.

WP Dark Mode is our first flagship product

The thought behind releasing a product like WP Dark Mode is, we saw users struggling to use dark mode in their website. They had to do a lot of code and customizations in order to make adding a dark theme worthwhile. In the end, they used to scrap that plan.

And Dark Mode was getting popular day by day. Even Google was embracing dark mode in their search engines and search options. Users were preferring to view websites in dark mode as it helped with eyesight. That is why website owners were desperate to add a dark theme to their website. But the hurdle was the difficulty to add dark mode.

So, we introduced a plugin WP Dark Mode for WordPress. This plugin will help the owners of WordPress sites add a dark theme to their website without any hassle. And as soon as we released the plugin we got an overwhelming response.

In no time, we reached 10000+ active installations. And today we are going to discuss that wonderful journey. So, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy.

The Rise of WP Dark Mode!

The idea behind creating the WP Dark Mode plugin is a very interesting one.

While researching CSS OS Based Dark Mode, we saw that you can easily override the system preferences using a few lines of code. So we thought we will develop the plugin by only using a few lines of code. Specifically, we wanted o use this CSS property,

@media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) {
  /* defaults to dark theme */
  body {
    --text-color: #eee;
    --bkg-color: #121212;
  }

to create our plugin. And we did so. But after applying and creating our plugin, we thought we should add image support so that users can exclude or replace images in dark mode. Also, we thought we needed to add an algorithm so that the color changes dynamically.

So we shifted to JavaScript and added those features. Amazingly, we got many user requests regarding new features. After adding those features one by one we have become the most successful and feature-rich Dark Mode plugin in the WordPress repository.

We are the first one to bring such a Dark Mode plugin with these kinds of features.

We now have a feature that will help replace or exclude videos in Dark Mode as well!

We Appreciate Your Help!

This milestone was only possible because of our users. Both free and pro users have helped us in a lot of ways. They gave us suggestions for new features and helped us to fix bugs to make the WP Dark Mode the way it is now.

So a big thank you to all of our users who believed in us from the beginning and helped us grow as a company. And a shoutout to Ali Rashidy, he was a big help and played a significant part in our success.
