I’ve finally found a dark theme that I like, darksimplicity. I’ll still want to simplify the fonts a bit, and definitely turn up the contrast on headers, but I think it’s a significant improvement already.
This won’t be the theme forever, but I think I’ve found the right one to get me started on this blog. It’s called hugo-black-and-light.
Visually it’s nothing like what I want. I’ll want to tone down the contrast,
ditch the overly fancy header font (Replaced Google fonts with Georgia + Verdana for now), and I’m sure I’ll find more as I go. Maybe I’ll throw all the styling away for something more modern looking.
