What is Kumux?
Kumux is the world's first dynamic circadian color scheme for code editors and other software.
As software developers, we spend most of our waking hours in front of the computer.
You might be aware that artificial light, and light emitted by computer and smartphone screens can harm our sleep quality. Reduced exposure to natual light and extended exposure to artificial light, (especially at night) has been associated with stress, reduced productivity, eye strain and sleep disruption.
Eye strain and loss of productivity can also be caused by inadequate contrast levels or inadequate visibility on your monitor, especially if you are working in sunlight.
The Kumux color scheme dynamically controls your color scheme throughout the day, based on accurate calculations of of sunlight. It minimizes disruption using smooth, automatic transitions.
It controls the amount of light (especially blue light) emitted by your monitor in order avoid sleep disruption. Blue light is boosted around solar noon in order to improve your productivity.
The contrast levels change during the day based on the amount and color of daylight available. This helps ensure adequate visibility throughout the day while also preparing you to wind down by the end of the day.
Kumux color scheme always adapts your colors and contrast dynamically based on the current position of the sun in your geo-location.
