Does anyone have any good resources on colour contrast in web design? Particularly looking for universal design like Laura Kalbag talks about, but also aesthetics sources.
Boosting would be lovely.
@alm10965 Thank you yes I follow it, its a great bot
@kensanata Thank you, yes I actively use this, I am after theory and articles for my report at this point, but also anything else interesting so that's a good shout.
@CorvusRobotica personally, I have code that generates random foreground colors for a chat client based on a minimum “distance” from the background color. A better documented effort than mine is this: http://defanor.uberspace.net/notes/random-foreground-color.html
@kensanata Yeah that's interesting, it looks random and not like it follows a theory unless you specifically ask it to.
@CorvusRobotica I was messing around with https://snook.ca/technical/colour_contrast/colour.html for a while in my PICO-8 game development
https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/ is very technical and probably not the easiest read, but if there's any kind of official standard on web accessibility, it's that
@packbat thank you!
Four online tools come to mind:
The last two have sliders that allow for a bit of play/exploration with color combinations.
@darkmirror Thank you so much!
