@kvyn_ @soffes after using the tool, I see that you have to identify the color using all the parameters instead of let's say entering a beginning and end hex value for the gradient range. Any thoughts on when something like this might be added?
@kvyn_ @soffes I'm not even a designer and I enjoyed playing around with this 😍🎨 Would love to see what people make out of this πŸ™
This is super cool. Will be useful for sure. Thanks for making it freely available, Lyft team!
What does it mean by β€œaccessible”?
@thinker here's a guide my friend @mds wrote about color accessibility: https://usecontrast.com/guide. Basically, WCAG 2.0 (web accessibility standards) defines it as certain contrast ratios. Ideal contrast between text and a background is at least 7.0.
@thinker @mds @soffes Had the same question! Lyft didn't define accessibility or reference any standards in their blog post for ColorBox-- wanted to confirm before I shared with my team https://design.lyft.com/re-appro...
@thinker @mallorypickard confirmed as WCAG 2.0. Maybe @_kevyn can update the post πŸ˜ƒ
This is very cool, thank you for sharing!
