CSS Chat Summary: 29 July 2021

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


Custom Properties (#49930)

  • @notlaura shared her draft Make post calling for contributors. UPDATE: The post has now been published here!
  • @Dave Ryan shared a note from his PR about the need for some common colour values – more discussion needed on this
  • @ryelle gave an update on her recent progress:
    • common.css has been updated and pushed to the try/custom-properties branchbranch A directory in Subversion. WordPress uses branches to store the latest development code for each major release (3.9, 4.0, etc.). Branches are then updated with code for any minor releases of that branch. Sometimes, a major version of WordPress and its minor versions are collectively referred to as a "branch", such as "the 4.0 branch".
    • Making PRs to try/custom-properties is a great way for contributors to add their contributions
    • She is keeping try/custom-properties up-to-date with master
    • Anybody can give feedback on any PRs in that repo
  • @Dave Ryan asked if fallback values should be provided as he’s seen some changes that use them and some that don’t. @ryelle clarified that she had used them in admin-bar.css as adminadmin (and super admin) color schemes don’t apply to the frontend, so the custom properties may not be defined. @Dave Ryan pointed out that the same reasoning applies to the login page too
  • @notlaura suggested that the next few meetings which have work sessions should begin with a quick check in for updates & housekeeping and then straight into the work session
