@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?

What does it mean by “accessible”?

@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 😃
