How can I listen for user changes to their colour scheme (ie dark mode)?

While you could provide a button, some parts of a site can look quite nice if they automatically transition between light and dark mode.

You can listen for these changes like so:

  .matchMedia("(prefers-color-scheme: dark)")
  .addEventListener("change", (e) => {
    const updatedScheme = e.matches ? "dark" : "light";
    if (updatedScheme === "dark") {
      // change something to dark mode
    } else {
      // change something to light mode
