Swackett and macOS Mojave Dark Mode (explained)

In macOS Mojave in Dark Mode, dark colors are used in place of light colors throughout the user interface. In Dark Mode the menu bar at the top of your Mac is inverted — so the bar is a dark color and the the text is white. That dark theme is carried throughout the UI.

Dark Mode may not seem like a big deal, but it has many benefits including reduced eye strain, higher contrast for easier reading — and it just plain looks cool. It’s also perfectly suited to control rooms where Swackett apps run 24-hours a day.

Swackett for macOS full supports Dark Mode — and is macOS Mojave savvy — fully supporting dynamic Light- and Dark-Mode switching by the operating system.

Swackett will honor Dark Mode as set by the operating system (requires macOS 10.14 Mohave). You can override the operating system below — forcing Swackett’s user interface to appear in light or dark mode (requires PRO version of Swackett).

Full Dark Mode support requires Swackett version 5.2.0 or greater.
