Presentation at DevFest Nürnberg, 2019 (https://devfestnuremberg.com/)
In recent times, light and dark modes have become popular in apps and as a result, users are starting to expect this feature in the apps they use.
In Android 10, users are now able to set their device theme to dark or light. In order to be able to deliver a consistent experience for users across many apps, it’s good for these apps to respond appropriately to the theme set by the user on their device.
In order to implement this feature in our apps, there are changes we need to make to our app.
In this talk, we will look at how we can collaborate with our designers and support this feature in our apps. We will cover topics ranging from adopting a design system, to leveraging material design components, making use of styles and themes, the process of migration from no-design-system to using a design system.
By the end of this talk, we would have covered in practical steps, what we need and how to go about supporting dark mode in our apps in incremental steps.
