  • Styled Bus Predictions

    February 13th, 2015
    tech, transit  [html]
    When I pushed out the first version of my lightweight bus predictions page I left it nearly unstyled, raw html. Mostly I just wanted to get something finished and see if it was useful. But while I don't want to do anything to slow this down, a little bit of styling only costs a few bytes and can make it look a lot better, so I just did a round of cleaning it up:

    If you like, try it out and let me know what you think! If you can think of ways it could be more useful let me know.

    (I'm not happy with the vertical alignment of the navigation icons. It seems to vary by device and have to do with how they're defined relative to the baseline of the font. I want to be able to say "take this glyph and center it vertically" but valign=center doesn't do this.)
