Theming and Contrast Adjustments for Diffify

Tim Brock continues a series on theming diffify:

It’s difficult to design a website that is “just right” for everyone. For instance, while reds and greens can be difficult to discern for some dichromats and anomalous trichromats, most trichromats have no such problem (peak daylight sensitivity lies in the yellow part of the spectrum, between red and green). Moreover, these colours also have common cultural semantics (though these do, of course, vary by culture). We also care about aesthetics.

Because of this conflict and more besides, we decided the best approach to making the site more accessible was through “theming”.
