On A serious note about the UI though, that red/green colour is awful for colourblind people. Didn't even realise there were two colours at first.

Thanks for the feedback. The colors are more syntax highlighting (vs indicating anything important), I'd like to research best practices here. I wonder if there's any client-side settings I can detect to indicate a different stylesheet should load.

blue is a good option instead of green. same reason some places in the world have blue, rather than green signals for traffic lights afaik :)

How would you work around this? Do browsers have a colorblind mode/header/whatever? Or should we just never use red/green combination?

I'm sure you mean - those are two different colours. If not, oh boy do I have news for you.
