"""
A RoboFont script to check if "dark mode" is currently active and apply dark preferences in RoboFont if so.
Works best if set up as a "Start Up Script." Here’s how to make it one:
1. Open RoboFont > Preferences
2. Go to Extensions > Start Up Scripts
3. Click the "+" icon, then add this script
4. Click "Apply" to save setting changes
5. Restart RoboFont!
----
Possible Script To-Do Items:
- Auto-switch light/dark when OS setting changed. Possibly: run script every n seconds to automatically catch if the light/dark mode changes.
- Handle Font View colors better (this is somewhat limited by RoboFont itself, but may may have a clever solution or improve over time).
