Any training program cannot be visualised when Postman theme is in Dark Mode

Hello All,
I am Dark Mode user and I was trying to use the same theme to complete all my training (from APIs 101 to Student Expert), however the response body when viewed through visualise, it is not supported/user friendly when theme dark mode is selected.

I am looking for enjoyable user experience while I am training, so I am not sure where to ask about this… can someone help me on how and where can I report this? Any Jira or GH Issue link?

Hey @bpricilla @prnam updated all training collections to show up in dark theme too. Small css change to make the background white irrespective for the visualizer. Thanks for reporting this you both!

You might have to pull changes to see the effect.

Hey @meenakshi.dhanani ,
Have you tried changing the text color? I don’t know if it is just my personal taste or I tested this at night, I feel the text-color needs to be different when in dark mode than force css style to use background colour to always stay white, its too bright to my eyes and that’s main reason I switch to dark mode. For short term this is good fix, but I think this would need some UX research and accessibility check and decide what is best.

Hey @prnam ,
Thanks for the suggestion. The best part about a public workspace collection is the fact that you can fork it and contribute to it. If this is a space you find interesting and have some feedback, feel free to jump in and raise a PR for any one of them, and we can work on it getting approved :smiley:

I’m no designer, and I’d appreciate the help too, and I know so will the maintainers :slight_smile: It’s all open source :white_check_mark:

P.S : This was a quick fix. Then again changing the text color assumes we may have only 2 themes. While I don’t know of an upcoming theme, I would want to be safe and ensure nothing existing breaks, so just went ahead with the safest quick fix.

Open source, @meenakshi.dhanani ! I assumed it was only for postman team working on creating edu content to fix it. :persevere:

Anyway, Where can I find the instructions on contribution to this? :slightly_smiling_face: New here, but willing to help.

Hey @prnam,
Lovely. We love contributors :clap:
This is how you can do version control in Postman - https://learning.postman.com/docs/collaborating-in-postman/version-control-for-collections/
So for any of the training collections, you’ll have to fork, make changes and raise a pull request to contribute :slight_smile:
Happy to help you through the process. Cheers!

Thx much, @meenakshi.dhanani :relaxed:. I’m surprised to know that you have VCS within Postman :sweat_smile:… excited to learn more… explore more about Postman and I feel it’s worth the shift from other tools. :speak_no_evil:

Sure, Will connect with you one-one if I am stuck and need help. :slightly_smiling_face:
