Helping to standardise a global dark mode preference is nice

No dark mode! Only black mode!

Thanks for sharing! I both love and hate the direction GNOME/GTK is going. On the one hand it becomes harder to customize and i don’t agree with some technical decisions, on the other hand it makes for a very practical integrated platform. I only wish we could have the best of both worlds :)

One of the things that libadwaita brings to the table that could have never been done without it in GNOME is accent color customization (that isn’t going to make it into 42, but maybe in 43 or 44), just like elementaryOS does with Pantheon; and the app itself can be recolored in many ways with some of the new features (like it already does with Metadata Cleaner). It’s not a lot of customization in the hands of the users, but it brings loads of possibilites for the app developers themselves and guarantees that their apps won’t look broken due to some poorly implemented theme like it used to do with GTK3.

Couldn’t this always be done by the developer using their own CSS via GtkCssProvider?

nope, it just wasn’t considered stable enough for a “major” release IIRC

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
