Michal Čihař - Multi part progress in Weblate

Multi part progress in Weblate

Weblate is still evolving and it recently got new feature to allow better overview of translation status - multi part progress bars.

The motivation to show more information is to have better overview of the translation. The numbers have been always shown withing Weblate, but making it graphical gives it much better visibility:

I'm still unsure about colors to use for highlighting different state - the failed checks should not be too different from translated strings as they might contain quite some false positives while fuzzy strings need to be really different as they absolutely need attention from translator. If you have better ideas about color scheme, please let me know!

I knew I was not crazy and I had indeed seen something different. Unfortunately, the colors used are not good for me (I am "color-impaired" - aka color blind - but mostly for color hues and tonalities not just every color).

If I may suggest:

1- keep the bar blue
2- make it a white pattern over the blue background
3- make the red bar a color lighter that contrasts with blue. Possibly a complement color (like yellow or a light green)

Thanks for feedback, I've adjusted the colors to be easier to differentiate.

I always find red, green and yellow colours most easy to relate with status 'not done', 'done' and in progress.
