    Pros: 

    Dark Mode

    Cons: 

    Higher RAM usage

    Interestingly as far as i see from Activity Monitor, it uses more RAM (with the name of your Slack url) Dark mode is useful but needs small touches, otherwise i didn't find it useful (text color shouldn't be #fff for example, or file uploads shouldn't be sharp black #000) and also there are minor bugs about the dark theme..

    As a conclusion; idea is good, execution needs more attention.

  • Pros: 

    Dark mode for slack

    Cons: 

    Doesn't support calls

    I love this idea and the dark mode works well for most of the interface. The dealbreaker for me is that it doesn't support calls, if you ever want to call or screenshare then you're better off with the native app.

Hi Product Hunt! ​👋​ ​​ ​​We are so happy to be back with a new product to solve a big issue we had with Slack for a long time, especially since the release of macOS Mojave. You guessed it, the lack of Dark Mode ​😱​ ​​ ​​Also, we’re not really fans of Electron so we wish there was a faster, more lightweight client for Slack since we have it open all day long. ​​ ​​So we made our own Slack client with a beautiful Dark theme (enabled by default) built with our own tech stack, the same one powering our main product Boxy Suite. It’s blazing fast ​⚡​️ ​​ ​​Let us know what you think! It’s free, but if you want to support us make sure to also check out Boxy Suite - Gmail for Mac https://boxysuite.com ​💙​ ​​ ​​PS: you might remember with made “Sblack” a few months ago. It was a little app that injected the dark mode CSS into the Slack official client. This new app is a standalone client that works just like a browser, so it’s safer and easier to update ​✅​

This looks awesome, I'll definitely try it out! Would be nice to know what features are missing or different, is that information available anywhere?

I like the idea and Slack does ruin my CPU currently, but not being able to get notifications for multiple work spaces is the only thing stopping me using it right now. Good work and good luck!

@lucas_reynes @linuz90 I was looking for this too. It's one of the most important functionalities so I think it should be made more obvious instead of being hidden in a menu. I'm all for clean interfaces but sometimes you have to sacrifice some whitespace to add important functions. Although if you only use CSS for modifying the styling, you probably can't add an "Sign in to Workspace" button. Are you also using userscripts? Do you at least have the possibility to run any JS on the page?
