The first website in the world with “prefers-color-scheme: dark”

As Apple begins the dark mode revolution, it wants it to be everywhere. I love dark mode, and I agree. A couple of days ago they released a new version of the Safari Developer Preview with support of the CSS feature “prefers-color-scheme: dark”. There is only one website in the world that supports it, and I happen to really like it.

It’s really simple to take advantage of:

@media (prefers-color-scheme: light) {
//code that is//
}

@media (prefers-color-scheme: dark) {
//code that changes//
}

Yep, it’s my website.

“Events in the Riviera” website

I started working on this project in July, when I saw ugly event posters being put up around Sanremo. To fix this, I made a classy three page document.

It then occurred to me that the official posters were already put up, therefore my design could not get widespread until next month. Secondly, Sanremo isn’t the only city to host interesting events, so a logical continuation of the project would be encompassing events happening in the surrounding area.

To make sure everyone knows what’s happening, I made a website, which, unlike posters, can be edited at any time. I’ve been updating it ever since. I’m now searching for a person that would do so for me.

I know, it doesn’t pop: it’s bare-bones. It’s not hosted on my server yet. The speed of adding new events is limited by how quickly I find something interesting, plus there’s no automatic mechanism for doing so. That’s why it’s still in beta. Tell me what you think: riviera.kurlov.net

P. S. I’m now going to document every update I make. Today I added a checkmark that appears on events that I verified by visiting. This system will not always work as events usually happen at a certain time, but it works very nicely on those that last several days.
