Supporting Basic Dark Mode


The default barf site generator now supports basic dark mode functionality. This has been achieved by including the standard color-scheme meta tag in the core header.html file:

<meta name="color-scheme" content="dark light">

This change also ships with some minor updates to the default blockquote design. You can see an example below:

This is a really cool blockquote

Minor Caveat

Unfortunately, Safari still has minor ahref / link color issue when defaulting to browser dark mode. If this is a problem for your own build of barf, take a look at a solution I wrote about here.

Personally, I can't be bothered to add that extra code to this project. The Safari team needs to get their shit together and fix such a simple bug. Plus, you shouldn't be using Safari anyway - it's proprietary garbage.
