CSSCSS Cascading Style Sheets. Audit (#49582)

@danfarrow reported some progress running @ryelle‘s CSS audit tool with @notlaura‘s report generation patchpatch A special text file that describes changes to code, by identifying the files and lines which are added, removed, and altered. It may also be referred to as a diff. A patch can be applied to a codebase for testing., in order to work on styling the HTMLHTML HyperText Markup Language. The semantic scripting language primarily used for outputting content in web browsers. output.

@ryelle is merging some of @notlaura‘s updates in smaller chunks, which means the PR needs to be rebased. @notlaura‘s next step will be to complete the rebase so that the audit PR can be merged. Templating updates could then continue in a new PR.

@ryelle hopefully resolved an issue about the property-values audit not running by pointing out that, when specifying which audits to run, the --all flag doesn’t include the property-values audit.

@ryelle has added some tests to the audits for which there was much appreciation.

Color Scheming (#49999)

@ryelle reported some great progress following her post on Make WordPress Design and the subsequent Slack discussion in #design.

The outcome is that we’re using the right color list currently, and we got a volunteer to help check out the updated screens in use.

@ryelle‘s next step is to set up a dev site in order to share the color scheme updates for feedback.

Open floor

@notlaura asked if anyone knew of discussion of color functions being added to CSS. @ryelle posted a link to a w3c working draft for implementing a color-adjust function which includes possible solutions including color-contrast, color-mix, brightness() and relative color syntax
