Would it be possible to implement a simple switch that allows the users to switch from light theme/dark theme?
In my mind its possible but you’d have to essentially clone the app within the app and add that true/false function and the light theme be “true” and dark theme be “false”…or vice versa.
That’s tons of work, so I was curious to see if someone had any other information in regards to this to make it easier. Thanks.
You’re on the right track. I’d make the true/false parameter name “Dark Mode” so that way users can toggle it within their profile. You need to have 1 version of the app but the app should have 2 screens for each type, one light mode, one dark mode.
When the user saves the “dark mode” setting, you should direct them to the dark mode home screen. That way, they browse the entire app within dark mode. If they uncheck the dark mode, then direct them to the light mode home screen.
I usually create a "splash"screen that directs the user where I want them to go when they first login (like the “Update App” screen if there is a new app version) so for your case, you can set a timer to direct them to the light or dark mode version based on the true/false parameter.
If dark mode = true > link to dark mode home screen.
If dark mode = false > link to light mode home screen.
