⇾ This Looks Like a Promising Webmentions Plugin for Kirby 3

Since Sebastiaan Andeweg announced not to have any time anymore to maintain the Kirby webmentions plugin he created, I am happy to have seen, that Sebastian Greger is working on a Sendmentions plugin as well as a webmention enabled commenting system. Time to upgrade to Kirby 3 anyways ;)

⇾ Accessible Brand Colors

This is a tool that shows you how ADA compliant your colours are in relation to each other. By adding your brand’s colours one by one, you can generate a chart to see how they can be used together for accessibility, see, where they don’t work, and find similar colours that work better.

⇾ Using the iPad Pro as Main Computer

| | permalink

Jon has written a good post about his personal experience using an iPad Pro as his main computer. What I like is, that he describes how he got there and since when and what else he tried. I see a lot of things similar to what he describes. I was totally tempted to do exactly what he says and skip a computer update and get an iPad Pro (or a Surface earlier and heard what he says about this way too often sadly). The downsides he mentiones about using it for web related work are a reason not to do it right now. Still tempting … ;)

This article is a nice read about how to build an accessible color system from scratch.
