-----------

In this initial pass at adding the low contrast options, we will only use the primary foreground and background colours to create the new themes. Enhancements to this will be done as part of FLUID-6298 at some point in the future. Additionally, the initial pass at grey on dark will use the existing light grey on dark grey low contrast theme.

May need to modify the design of the contrast adjuster to fit in the additional low contrast options.

Infusion Documentation Plan






Perhaps using an AUTHORS, CONTRIBUTORS, or COPYRIGHT file.
Consider refactoring infusion repo into a monorepo

  • separate lifecycle of core framework and components
  • Every now and then we will make a form of "LTS" release where we sync up and QA framework and components
  • Will each component be a separate repo in the mono repo?
Remove Progress Component in favour of standard HTML component

Requires a redesign of Uploader that doesn't use our Progress component

Should this be deprecated in a release first?

Antranig




Remove enhancement code for no-js version of Uploader

Should this be deprecated in a release first?

https://github.com/fluid-project/infusion/blob/master/src/framework/enhancement/js/ProgressiveEnhancement.js










Automate Manual Test plans

Look at Tony's Webdriver work
Establish a practice for "annotating" new changes in the docs

e.g. "Changed in infusion-dev"

Add an automatic link checker as part of the doc build process


For our sites switch to use YouTube video player
