Hi! Another improvement for the syntax highlighting (CodeMirror) is coming soon:
The Technical Wishes team at Wikimedia Deutschland will update the colors in the syntax highlighting feature to add more contrast, improving accessibility and readability. The changes ensure that the syntax highlighting color scheme is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 1.4.3 AA).
This not only helps people with reduced vision, but can also be helpful when editing in glaring daylight. Examples can be found on the project page.
As usual, we deploy in batches, and plan to start with a German, Catalan and Turkish Wikipedia on March 24.
Feedback is, as always, welcome on the talk page of the project.
Johanna for the Technical Wishes team
