Is it possible for the forums to display light versions of the smilies on the dark theme?Nuh uh.
How about adding a white glow? That could probably be done via CSS and would save you from having to redo all the emojis.
The only way he is going to say yes to making emojis work in dark mode is if someone else does 100% of the work for him. You're not going to successfully talk Lemon into doing something he doesn't want to do.
Fair enough, it is open-source. I am shit when it comes to design, though.
Any feedback on how this looks?
With 2px blur:
With 1px blur:
With 0px blur:
I also played with invert, which will probably not be fun on non monochromatic emojis:
Also the css is:
filter: drop-shadow(1px 1px 0px white) drop-shadow(-1px -1px 1px white) drop-shadow(1px -1px 1px white) drop-shadow(-1px 1px 1px white);
If anyone has any better ideas or implementations throw them at me.
