Midnight Pub

New theme: Midnight Classic Dark

~zampano

I really enjoy playing with my view of the Midnight. For a long while I was using the retro, cyber-y theme that I posted awhile back. But I wanted something a little easier to read. Thankfully, m15o gave the building blocks in the dark theme for the Midnight, which I quite like overall. I just made a few tweaks, mainly to fonts.

One of my primary purposes was getting rid of the Google Fonts embed. This way I don't have to ping Google's servers every time I visit the Midnight. Instead, I just downloaded the ones I wanted (from Google Fonts, to be clear), and installed them locally. This is much more privacy-friendly.

But beyond that, I wanted something easier to read on larger posts, and my previous theme just wasn't doing it for me. I find serif fonts easier to go through, especially in larger blocks, and I also increased the overall width of content (since I have a 4K monitor). So I personally am using three fonts: one for most content, one for code (the <pre> tag, to be precise), and one for writing. They are: Fandwood Text, Inconsolata, and Input Serif, respectively. Here's where you can download the first two (the third is commercial):

Fanwood Text

Inconsolata

And here's the CSS, which you can copy and paste into your "theme" page:
