Have more control over your screen at night


Nocturnal is a menu bar app for macOS that allows you to go the extra mile in controlling your display settings to reduce strain on your eyes. It includes darker than dark dimming, Night Shift fine tuning, multi-monitor support, and the ability to turn off Touch Bar on Macbook Pro.


System Requirements

Nocturnal is only supported on macOS High Sierra 10.13 or later, and requires a Mac that supports Night Shift. Apple Silicon Macs are not currently supported.


To stay up to date install Nocturnal using Homebrew.

brew install --cask joshjon-nocturnal

Alternatively, you can manually download the latest release.

Nocturnal is not currently signed with an Apple developer account. To open an unsigned app follow these steps.

  2. A dialog box will appear, then click Open.
