    I agree with you, though it's never late to re-check. Also, I think this can be perfect for testing against living styleguides.

    One thing that already happened to me: designing a component that I thought had enough contrast, but not really knowing where it was going to be used. Let's say I design a blue button with enough text contrast. If the button is used within a blue background, it might not have enough non-text contrast (button background with adjacent color).

    Hi folks, I just launched a resource that I think you might find useful when designing new websites. It's a Button Contrast Checker, but I think it is a little bit different than other checkers:

    • checks all the buttons/links of a page webpage at once
    • checks contrast in different states (hover and focus)
    • reports non-text contrast (1.4.11) as buttons are user interface components.
    • results can be shared with your team

    Now, more interesting: the result for the DN website: https://www.aditus.io/button-contrast-checker/www-designernews-co-2019-09-11-at-11-11-23-562

    Let me know what you think. Feedback is very welcome :)
