A theme aimed at reading long texts avoiding distractions. This goal is achieved:
Removing empty space. Compact Night makes little use of empty lines to separate items. It only adds empty lines around blockquotes, code blocks, tables and headings <h1> thru <h4>. Paragraphs are discerned by indentation. This scarce usage of empty space and a constant inter-line distance gives Compact Night its name.
Compact Night does little use of colour. Only code blocks, links and highlights use colour.
The same can be said about graphical items as lines, they are only used in tables, code blocks —only when displaying line numbers— and HTML <kbd> tags.
This overall scarcity of ornament gives Compact Night a someway sober or austere look, but it is a nice theme to keep your attention on long texts avoiding disturbances. It was designed to look like classical or vintage printed books, but in a dark theme also aimed at relieving stress from your eyes.
The above text rendered with Compact Night.
Common markup and lists.
Code blocks and quotations.
Tables, footnotes, inlined HTML and fonts.
