Programmers hate light IDE, ‘cause light attracts bug… Just kidding. Actually, there are lots of myth about programmers and ` Why programmers hate light IDE? ` is one of those.
So, let’s demystify it..
This discussion can be spitted into four separate parts and reasons.
Why programmers hate light IDE?
- Easier for eyes
- Feels cool like a hacker
- Mistakenly switched to dark IDE and don’t know how to switch it off
- Perhaps he is a racist
Easier for eyes
As you know, the intensity of the dark colour is very low and is pleasant to the eyes. The job of any developer is to stay in front of the PC’s screen all day long, and white/light background using that long can affect the eyes. That’s why developers/programmers prefer using dark IDE.
Dark IDE and code editor comfort our eyes, as the number of photons (intensity) radiated from the screen in dark mode is lesser than in light mode.
Feels cool like a hacker
Perhaps, he is a nerd like me and wanna feel like a professional hacker as the movies and shows represent hackers and programmers using a dark ide in a dark room
Mistakenly switched to dark IDE and don’t know how to switch it off
This can be a case, ’cause I’ve also gone through it. And if you’re going through this one, just use a search engine and search ” How to turn light ide in <your_ide_name> ? “

Perhaps he is a racist
F**k off, he is not a racist, the real reason is already been described in point 1. If you still feel he is racist, I have something to say to you, please read the below line.
Wait, wait, wait… You have read the whole article why don’t do comment and criticise my article.
