Learning from Smashing Conference and making a demo

A demo donation form for The Raccoon Fund — give generously to this great (sadly fictional) organization preparing for our future, multispecies-governed world.

From the conference

  1. Prioritize accessibility
    The core of Marcy Sutton’s Accessibility Audit Live talk was “designing inclusively helps everyone,” and I tried to keep that in mind for this build. The aXe browser plugin that she and her team built is a real help! The colour-contrast notes and ARIA warnings were especially great.
The aXe plugin. Easy accessibility testing is a beautiful thing, especially when your page passes
Sample input fields, showing fields which passed validation, and one currently focused. Helping donors focus on what you need them to focus on is a win-win
A button to turn off animations on the page. Turning off animations can also help if you’re hungover
Chrome Lighthouse test results for the page. Two seconds to interactive even on a 3G connection is pretty good!
An application of mix-blend-mode. Never waste a chance to celebrate the upcoming raccoon emoji
A well-labelled submit button including the donation amount
