Hemingway theme mods


I’ve spent way too much of my free time, modifiying Kyle Neath’s Hemingway theme. One of the great things about his theme is that it achieves its beauty via the subtlety of shade. Links are matched to backgrounds by varying shades of grey, black, and white. I liked the general idea but I find it difficult to read text on black backgrounds so I decided to lighten the main post area a little bit. Finding a nice shade of grey wasn’t easy but I did a web search and came across a website called Hex Hub HTML Color Codes. The authors of this site have gatherered colors in terms of themes like “Warms” and “Neutrals.” When I clicked on the Neutrals I was presented with several dozen shades of grey with the hex code for each shade beside the color swatch. I could paste into the Hemingway CSS file. If you’re looking for a great online CSS color resource, this should be in your bookmark manager.
