Contrast checker in the color panel

  1. Describe the problem your experiencing and how your idea helps solve this
    Checking contrast between items and their background is currently subbed out to 3rd party plugins. Having the ability to check your contrast ratings as you are making decisions on color gives you the ability to adjust and check the work at the same time.

Here is an example of how it works in Webflow. This is selected on a bit of text over a dark background currently.


Agree this would be good as a native feature. My plugin Contrast does update live as you change colors with the color picker. So even though it’s a plugin it does at least allow for that immediate feedback loop.

I use that plugin everyday. Thanks @Alex_Carr!
