A dark and compact theme

Requires Discord desktop app with BetterDiscord installed.

After installing BetterDiscord:

  1. Download DiscordNight.theme.css and navigate to Settings > Themes and click on Open Themes Folder or place the file in %appdata%/BetterDiscord/themes
  2. Refresh Discord using CTRL+R or restart Discord.
  3. Go to Settings > BetterDiscord > Themes and enable DiscordNight.
  • Dark Theme needs to be enabled in Settings > Appearance > Theme and select Dark.

  • BetterDiscord Minimal Mode is currently not supported.

Keep in mind that things may break at any time because of Discords background updates which may cause you to have to reinstall BetterDiscord or wait for the theme to be updated.
In case there is anything that has not yet been fixed or any plugin related issues feel free to either make a new issue or contact me KillYoy#0295 on Discord.

This theme supports USRBG by Tropical.

Customizing the theme

DiscordNight has certain unique variables that can easily be modified to change the visibility and width of certain elements. The code can either be added to the DiscordNight.theme.css or the Custom CSS menu in Discord settings:

:root {
    --User-List-Width: 200px;                        /* 200px, Discord default = 240px */

    --User-Popout-Width: 236px;                      /* 236px, Discord default = 250px */

    --Channel-List-Width: 196px;                     /* 196px, Discord default = 240px */
    --Channel-Invite-Edit-Buttons: none;             /* flex = ON, none = OFF */
    --Channel-Category-Invite-Button: flex;          /* flex = ON, none = OFF */
    --Channel-List-Active-Threads: flex;             /* flex = ON, none = OFF */
    --Channel-List-Upcoming-Events: flex;            /* flex = ON, none = OFF */
    --Channel-List-Boost-Goal: block;                /* block = ON, none = OFF */

    --Friends-List-Searchbar: flex;                  /* flex = ON, none = OFF */

    --Text-Channels-Capital-Letter: capitalize;      /* capitalize, none */

Want certain things to look like they normally do in Discord?

I have made some import addons which changes certain aspects of the theme.
You can change the Server list message notice and Chat file attachment button back to their original appearance by adding either of these two lines of code to your DiscordNight.theme.css

@import url("https://killyoy.github.io/DiscordNight/Addons/Vanilla_ServerList_Message_Notice.theme.css"); 
@import url("https://killyoy.github.io/DiscordNight/Addons/Vanilla_Attachment_Button.theme.css"); 

Installing DiscordNight using other methods (Not recommended)

  • If you don't want to use BetterDiscord or it does not work for some reason the CSS can be injected using Discords developer tools using Ctrl+Shift+I in the Desktop app or F12 in the browser. In the Sources tab go click on assets and find the file that ends with .css and paste in the code from DiscordNight.css into it, if done correctly the theme should be loaded until the next time Discord restarts (Keep in mind that images loaded from an external address will not load this way).

Installing DiscordNight to your internet browser

  • By using a stylesheet addon like Stylus, you can create a style for discordapp.com and paste in the code from DiscordNight.css (Not everything will work correctly like scrollbars and external images)
