I’ve been happy to let others speak, because everything I would say, someone else has said. However, I react strongly to putting the code on a black background. I understand that I am unusual in that I set my text editors and terminal windows to have a light background, but still–the manual is like a book. Books don’t have black backgrounds (usually). If the code is in black background, and the rest of the text has a light background, it feels like a kind of noticeable perceptual shift is required to go from one to the other.
I don’t mind the light gray background.
Anyway, those are my feelings, fwiw.
(It’s true that I have been running discord with the dark background. That’s because the light background scheme doesn’t have enough contrast on some of my devices. Note that the dark background is not black; it’s just a dark gray. However, I’m not sure that would be a good choice for manuals.)
I’m a little bit worried that embedded klipse will end up seeming overengineered, and will cause problems in some unforeseen situation even if it’s only on conditionally, but that’s just a vague worry. I don’t know.
