Dark Theme for VSTS and TFS Web Portal
Many of Microsoft's products, including Office and Visual Studio, support a dark theme which is easier on the eyes. However, for some reason, VSTS and the TFS Web Portal do not have a dark theme.
At my workplace, we do our peer review through the web portal, so I spend many long hours staring at the bright white backgrounds. It would be amazing for my poor burnt eyes if we could get a dark theme. I'm sure many others agree.
YesI agree , VSO - Should also have an Dark theme option as well

Please add this features. I have to review thousands of files and my eyes get red and starts watering from staring at the bright white background.
Dark theme please... save our eyes and some electricity!
Can someone please tell us if this is even on the radar? It seems a logical progression seeing as the docs site allow the choice of a dark mode.
I hate VSTS. It's ugly and constrained.
I use a chrome plugin called DarkReader which does a good job until they create a proper dark theme for VSTS. You can get it here https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/dark-reader/eimadpbcbfnmbkopoojfekhnkhdbieeh?hl=en
Is it going to be ever implemented? Why people from ms do nothing with this? Wouldn't be a problem to use 3rd party solution but UI is build so poorly that nothing is possible to use instead without crippling here and there.

Feature Suggestion for the VSTS Wikis is to allow for a light and dark theme similar to how docs.microsoft.com allows.

It would also come in handy for me who has 3 different instances of TFS to separate test from prod. If it would be possible to write extensions for display themes.
My eyes! The goggles do nothing!

I have been working on my own dark theme for VSTS but it currently only works for chrome due to the extension I use to make it work called User Css.
here are screen shots of a Sample Repo withing VSTS I am using.
Would this be something people are interested in for the time being? if so I will finish work on the css file and clean it up a bit and then provide the file and info on how to add the file to the extension here.

Better than staring at a headlight all day! And a black background is more power efficient with an OLED display.

This is a great feature in the azure portal - it would be awesome to get this experience here as well.
This would help avoid eye strain for developers
This would be incredibly helpful!

When you work long hours on VSTS and Visual Studio next to each other, its awesome that VS has a dark theme but you look at your other monitor and its too bright which has VSTS on it.
Hence it would be awesome to have VSTS web portal in an optional dark theme as well.
I want to create a custom theme for TFS web access.
