Check out the demo in these websites:

πŸ“– Setup

  1. Add nuxtjs-darkmode-js-module dependency to your project
yarn add nuxtjs-darkmode-js-module # or npm install nuxtjs-darkmode-js-module
  1. Add nuxtjs-darkmode-js-module to the modules section of nuxt.config.js
  modules: [
    // Simple usage

    // With options
    ['nuxtjs-darkmode-js-module', { /* module options - check below */ }]

  // or use options likes this,
  darkmodejs: {
    bottom: '64px', // default: '32px'
    right: 'unset', // default: '32px'
    left: '32px', // default: 'unset'
    time: '0.5s', // default: '0.3s'
    mixColor: '#fff', // default: '#fff'
    backgroundColor: '#fff',  // default: '#fff'
    buttonColorDark: '#100f2c',  // default: '#100f2c'
    buttonColorLight: '#fff', // default: '#fff'
    saveInCookies: false, // default: true,
    label: 'πŸŒ“', // default: ''
    autoMatchOsTheme: true, // default: true
    disableWidget: false // default: false

▢️ Methods

If you don’t want to show the widget and enable/disable Darkmode programatically you can use the method toggle(). You can also check if the Dark Mode is activated with the method isActivated(). See them in action in the following example:

// in a vue instance check example in example/pages/index.vue
this.darkmode.toggle() // this will work well only if `disableWidget: true` in the options

// caution the following method is not reactive

πŸ’„ Override style

  • A CSS class darkmode--activated is added to the body tag when the darkmode is activated. You can take advantage of it to override the style and have a custom style
  • Use the class darkmode-ignore where you don’t want to apply darkmode
  • You can also add this style: isolation: isolate; in your CSS, this will also ignore the darkmode.
  • It is also possible to revert the Dark Mode with this style mix-blend-mode: difference;


.darkmode--activated p, .darkmode--activated li {
  color: #000;

.button {
  isolation: isolate;

.darkmode--activated .logo {
  mix-blend-mode: difference;
<span class="darkmode-ignore">😬<span>

πŸ› Debug

If it does not work you may have to add the following code, but this will invalidate the classes to override.

.darkmode-layer, .darkmode-toggle {
  z-index: 500;

🚸 Browser compatibility

This library uses the CSS mix-blend-mode: difference; to provide the Dark Mode. It may not be compatible with all the browsers. Therefore the widget has been hidden in Internet Explorer and Edge. This library also uses prefers-color-scheme: dark to automatically enable the Dark Mode if the OS prefered theme is dark.
