Tablet Weaving Draft Designer Updates

We've made some hopefully useful changes to TDD today.


Firstly, bug fixes:

The notice at the bottom of the drafts has been corrected so that the web address only has one http in it.

A typo in a line of code that was resetting the palette to defaults when the page was refreshed has been corrected (our thanks to Mark, who spotted it).

The instructions page now includes a note about using TDD for vacant-hole patterns.


Secondly, interface additions:

You can now choose how dark you want the grey backwards turn squares using a slider in the display section of the control panel. This should hopefully make TDD more useful for people who would prefer a greater level of contrast between the backgrounds of the two types of squares (our thanks to kjax, who inspired this addition during a Ravelry private message exchange).

The display section now also gives you the option to add a red horizontal line to the draft at the turning reversal points. I know many weavers prefer to mark this point as they weave by flipping tablets that need to change twining direction, rather than turning backwards or forwards.


Finally:

The code for TDD is now available on Github at https://github.com/jamesba/tabletweave
