    That github page links to the dodgy extension "Stylish".

    The better one is called Stylus. The main difference being "Any and all analytics, telemetry, and data-collection have been removed completely. We'd rather not know what you're up to."

  • To anyone who's ever worked on a game wiki: thank you | 2021-09-26
    Highly recommend the Stylus Extension, which has a lot of user-created themes that improve sites. This one does pretty well to make Fandom sites usable (although it has issues with colors that make some pages/links absolutely unreadable, but that's a matter of wiki style clashing with user style).
  • Will there be customizable backrounds?
  • Heya, how do I give VGCats archive a dark background? | 2021-09-09
    You're referring to the browser add-on Stylus. This sub is about digital pens, which are commonly called "styluses".

    > (The end user should apply their own CSS if wanted;

    I still remember the time when user styles were a first class feature built into all browsers. Hell, that 'C' in CSS, "Cascading", was always there to allow styles to enhance/override prior styles, including - at the top-level - to allow the user to override website's styling. Back before web designers ruined everything by making every web page into its own special snowflake, people thought users would have one-two default CSS sheets to choose from and apply to any webpage, the way we today think about "dark mode".

    These days, we have to resort to using browser extensions. A well-known one is Stylus [0][1]. In a way, it's much better than old built-in user styles. But then, it's not built in.


    [0] -

    [1] - Mind the name, it's "Stylus", not "Stylish" - the latter used to be popular, but then it sold out and become another peace of surveillance capitalism detritus. Stylus is a GPLv3 fork of Stylish with data collection removed.

  • Yeah, I might get the hang of removing the focus rings on edge now but where should I input the code and is there any additional codes I should 'inject' as well? | 2021-08-19
    Stylus add-on for Chrome works fine in Edge. Set that as a global style.

  • Wondering about some pinephone uses | 2021-08-09
    What about using Stylus on Firefox ?
  • Does anyone know how to change this back to the old icon? This one is super distracting, and I honestly find it quite ugly. | 2021-07-22
    if you use pc or laptop you can add a styleseet for youtube, use this extension called stylus - (it's open source) , then you can add custom css , so you them make a style sheet for and add this css .ytp-doubletap-static-circle { display: none !important; } this will hide the circle.

  • Update to toltec: does this mean that draft should work again?
    Thank you very much.According to, toltec seems to pick the sources of draft from that repo ( and build the binaries from them. Am I interpreting this incorrectly?
    There has been a new release of toltec ( In a previous thread it is mentioned that toltec needed to be updates for draft to work in the new reMarkable software versions ( Now should it work? What should be done? I don't remember directly installing nothing related to toltec to make draft work in previous tests (with previous versions of the reMarkable software).

    For anybody wanting more context on the ipk format: | 2021-09-27
    I guess you haven't looked at our install instructions[0]. The hash check is done before running the script. You can't run the script if it doesn't match unless you choose to just run it manually and ignore the check.


  • Bricked my remarkable 2 please help

  • Checking upgrade steps for Toltec/remux (RM2)
    Is the next step to enable auto-update in RM2 settings and upgrade? Also, I've seen conflicting info on what will happen with system upgrades. Some places tell me that it will wipe Toltec and all the custom stuff. But on the other hand, this page provides a command ("toltecctl reenable") to re-enable Toltec after a system upgrade, implying that Toltec will be fine and just need to be re-enabled. I could go for the upgrade and find out, but I'd rather not Leroy Jenkins into things before consulting you folks who actually know what you're doing!
    On the discord, they said Toltec hasn't been updated for 2.9 yet. This is the update they're still testing, if you want to keep an eye on it:
