I made the loading of the accessibility color wheel faster by using images optimized for the web! What do you think about it ? Is it more usable?
For the more technical I have used the new avif format where possible. This is a “better” way of compressing images than the traditional jpeg compression. According to tests I made, the resulting file size is about half the size of the .jpeg file.
You can browse a description of this format.
Do you remember list.com? it was a program for the dos command prompt that listed the files in the current directory, allowed to view them and to browse the filesystem. It was a 16 bit application and unfortunately cannot be longer used on modern PCs.
But you can simulate it with vifm and less! Here’s how:
Use chocolatey, a package manager for windows that makes easy to install command line applications. After installing it run a command prompt as administrator and type
choco install vifm and
choco install less
Perhaps you’ve already noticed, it’s been a while since in the wheel there are 2 new buttons to choose the colors to test.
These are the color selectors provided by the browser (for the more technical the <input type = ‘color’>). Many modern browsers support this feature.
Let me know what you think!
Now you can see the results faster in the rimario. In fact, the “paginated” layout is active, ie the results if necessary are divided by pages, each containing 1000 words.
In the rimario you can now view words in “cloud” mode :).
The words in this case appear larger or smaller depending on their frequency in Italian.
Have fun and let me know if you have any change proposals!
It’s online the new rimario, where you can find rhymes of an italian word of your choice. The result words belong to the italian dictionary.
Let me know what you think of it!
