Change golang color to #3399ff #1072

merged 2 commits into from

Why do you want to change the color?


@pchaigno blue is more indicative of Go (and the golang gopher) than the currently used brown.


@pchaigno Also, the currently used shade of brown isn't... well... the most flattering. :)

@bkeepers bkeepers added the Triage label

@snormore is there a style-guide for Go? Is this definitely the 'right' blue :smile:


@arfon no color style guide afaik, but if we want to be consistent with their website colors then it would be #E0EBF5 (screenshot 2014-04-22 09 53 02) or #375EAB (screenshot 2014-04-22 10 02 47).


What do you think about updating the code in the PR to #375EAB?


Can do, it's now set to screenshot 2014-04-22 10 02 47

Thanks @snormore


Woohoo! Thanks @arfon.


:smile: - may be another few days before we cut a new Gem for but this change will get there sometime soon...


Thanks :) The old colour always bothered me but I didn't know it would be possible to change it.


Nice. Really a minor thing, but the previous colour was kind of off-putting.


Confirmed this is live in production now:


Lovely! :sparkles:


Why the change? I loved this color, it was easy to "gauge" a golang repo, now it looks like a CSS / Coffeescript repo. Makes it hard to see whats what.


:+1: @benjojo it also looks like python, really difficult to differentiate the languages only based on the color
