Summary description:  General Dark Mode Support for LaTeX-Documents

Announcement text:
 i am happy to finally publish my first LaTeX-Package: darkmode

 The darkmode Package provides an API for template and package
 developers to create dynamic color schemes for light- and darkmodes.
 For those unaware: We refer to dark mode when a document has a dark
 background with a light font and to light mode if it has a dark font
 with a light background.

 Therefore, it provides the following Commands:
 \IfDarkModeT{<true code>}
 \IfDarkModeF{<false code>}
 \IfDarkModeTF{<true code>}{<false code>}
 (enabledarkmode and disabledarkmode should only be used at the preamble)

 While for the common task of printing a dark mode has a lot of
 disadvantages and would take a lot of ink, theese days it becomes
 more and more common to view PDF files directly on a Screen.
 And Screens emit a lot of Blue light, which - especially in
 the evening - can be really annoying to stare at when working
 on a large text document. Also modern displays can get so bright
 that a stark black and white contrast is too strong for most
 lighting scenarios.

 Kind regards,
