    I guess I don’t understand exactly what the issue is here, when you write in your demo:

    intial font color is switchable but text-fill-color of links isn’t, and I want it to be same color as background and I don’t care about border, and if you’ll add it in css then font-color also changes – it’s not good

    Specially that last part about the font-color changing … for if you do:

    .dark .two {
      -webkit-text-fill-color: #333;

    Then just the text-fill-color changes, no? So what is really the issue?

    yep, you did it with extra css but
    say i have 1000 of elements&classes and i don’t want to write all that css for all of them
    soooo i think there should a js magic button for that specific style changes .. at least i hope

    1. on web-development: HTML, CSS and javaScript: there is no magic involved
    2. if being lazy, one has to get smart with it, like writing functions and so on ;)

    Soooo maybe try to write a function in javascript that’s swaps every instance of “white” to “black” on button click or something, but I’m not going to go there. Personally I would much rather have the fined grained control with (declarative property-value pairs in) CSS, that is hard to beat IMO.

    I’ve been trying to put something together but it makes no sense. How could you select individual elements by their background colour when that it is defined by the parent…

    i was thinkin’ maybe it’s possible to select not the element properties but just specific color in genereal
    regardless of anything else, you know .. find a color in css and change it by js function or so.
    if not don’t worry .. i’ll stick with last workin’ way.

    Changing the actual CSS file itself is possible but slow and not recommended…

    One thing that could work is using data-attributes on the elements (also very declarative), then move the styling to the javaScript. I could see how in some cases one would prefer it that way, but for this use-case I’m not so sure.

    $(function() {
      $('.theme-switcher').on("click", function(event) {
        if ($('#theme').hasClass('light')) {
            "color": $('#theme').data("styleswitch-color"),
            "background-color":  $('#theme').data("styleswitch-bgcolor")
            "-webkit-text-fill-color": $('.linkline').data("styleswitch-fillcolor") 
        } else {
            "color": "#333",
            "background-color": "#fff"
            "-webkit-text-fill-color": "#fff"

    Actually that idea with selecting classes is the best solution for me.
    The only thing that’s left is how to keep selected theme (dark/bright) in browser memory.
    Because while you’re navigating through wesite everytime you have to reselect the theme
    it’s very unhandy .. is there any ideas?

    Sounds like you’d be needing localStorage…

    # October 12, 2017 at 2:22 am

    If you post a relevant demo, I can put a few lines together.

    Superb, i’m on it

    # October 15, 2017 at 1:23 am

    i was how i can make a demo on codepen with links?
    link two pens together or something?

    # October 15, 2017 at 6:59 am

    Why not use a regular direct link? Using localStorage should still work that way. Not sure what you’d mean otherwise myself.

    Not sure if i understood correctly
    but working example is here
