AppleScript to Toggle Dark Mode

We can use AppleScript to toggle between dark and light mode under macOS.
-- Toggle dark mode
tell application "System Events"
tell appearance preferences
get properties
if dark mode is false then
set dark mode to true
set dark mode to false
end if
end tell
end tell
Save this in a file say, toggle-dark-mode.applescript. Now we can use osascript to run this.
λ osascript ~/bin/toggle-dark-mode.applescript
