It is no secret, that most developers are nocturnal. That’s why there are many tools that makes a coder’s nightlife easier. Dark Mode in IDEs is a good example. But did you know f.lux? This tiny tool makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day. Simply by filtering your display’s blue colors at when it gets darker, which is super healthy as it reduces eye-strain and makes you even sleep better!

Sounds super weird and looks crazy when you try it out first but believe me: If you used it once for a day or two, you’ll never wanna go without again! It is completely free and works on most OS, even (rooted) Android or iOS devices. Give it a try!
