Suggestion: High Color Contrast for Accessibility

[Was originally created in Hopscotch Language Evolution, changed by author]

A feature I’d like to see in Hopscotch is:

High Color Contrast option for the Editor

This is so users who have trouble seeing the current blocks don’t feel left out

Here is an example design I’ve made:

I’ve seen something similar in another programming languages, it looks like this:

Scratch and some block style programming apps are already doing this.

This is a nice idea!
Hopscotch definitely needs more accessibility features.
I’d really like to see this implemented.

Definitely a great idea! The color you proposed also seems to be compliant with the highest levels of WCAG (for non-WCAG studiers out there: it is basically a framework of guidelines for app-accessibility)

The new example version you made makes it harder for me to see the text imo /lh

Maybe something like this?

Lol if not than feel free to say my eyes are broken /lh

Yeah, it is a bit hard for me to see too.
I was going to say something but I didn’t want to be rude.
And I wasn’t sure if others (such as colorblind people?) could see it but I couldn’t.

But that definitely looks better!
It’s still harder for me to see than the original though.
