Dark mode on MacOS Mojave

With the recently-released public beta of MacOS Mojave and its upcoming gold release this fall, will Calibre be able to imitate the system's dark mode? This would be wonderful. I know a dark mode already exists on Calibre for Windows but I know of no way to get it on Mac.

I must have missed that, can someone tell me how to do it?

I tried the features in Job Spy, but I found, because of my workflow patterns, it was too easy to lose the settings, so they didn't suit me.

@jdpinto - sorry for somewhat the off-topic response

calibre uses whatever colors are defined in the system color theme.

On Windows, yes, but as far as I can tell, this isn't yet the case on Mac (running MacOS Mojave beta in dark mode). I'm wondering if there are plans to make this a feature.

Thanks!

It's not something calibre does, it happens automatically at the toolkit level (the toolkit being Qt). It maybe that Qt does not yet support it on macOS, in which case it is likely to be implemented eventually.
