Dark theme


How do I get the dark theme to all of Splunk, regardless of version, including search results and dashboards, and to any other website as well?

The following solution gives you dark mode for all Splunk versions for both searches and dashboards, and for all other websites:
Install the darkreader.org extension
Install the Stylus extension
Add css to tame the cell highlighting feature in Splunk ->

  1. Click the Stylus extension
  2. Click Manage
  3. Click "Write New Style"
  4. Set "Applies to Everything" at the bottom
  5. Copy the following css into the box "code 1":

    /* highlight color, for dark mode */
    ::selection {
    background: #161710fc;
    color: #42ff42

    statistics > table > tbody > tr > td > div:nth-child(n):hover {

    background: #001a07 !important;
    color: #6cff6c !important;


    statistics > table > tbody > tr:nth-child(n) > td:nth-child(n):hover {

    background: #001a07 !important;
    color: #6cff6c !important;
