CSS Chat Summary: 10 December 2020

The meeting took place here on Slack. @notlaura facilitated and @danfarrow (me!) wrote up these notes.


@notlaura congratulated everyone who worked on the 5.6 release.

CSSCSS Cascading Style Sheets. Audit (#49582)

@danfarrow shared his updated version of the audit report (featuring sticky headers & dark mode!)

@notlaura reported having the style property values audit working, and making progress on her config PR which is nearly ready.

@ryelle reported a new PR to tweak report generation in order to decouple audits from specific templates, which would reduce the number of templates required.

Some great progress happening!

Color Scheming (#49999)

@danfarrow reported having fixed his wp-env problems and generated visual regressionregression A software bug that breaks or degrades something that previously worked. Regressions are often treated as critical bugs or blockers. Recent regressions may be given higher priorities. A "3.6 regression" would be a bug in 3.6 that worked as intended in 3.5. diffs based on the initial PR from @tellthemachines.

We discussed how this feature could be incorporated into wordpress-develop, and agreed that the tests would be best run manually. The discussion concluded with a positive sense that this tool could meet one of the goals of the CSS audit project.

@ryelle reported that her public demo site for reduced adminadmin (and super admin) colours shouldn’t be used at the moment as it needs updating.

Open floor / CSS link share

@notlaura shared a link to Houdini.how, a community-driven resource library to learn about CSS Houdini.

And with that the meeting concluded. Thanks everybody!
