Autocode is the name of a family of “simplified coding systems”, later called programming languages, devised in the 1950s and 1960s for a series of digital computers at the Universities of Manchester, Cambridge and London. Autocode was a generic term; the autocodes for different machines were not necessarily closely related as are, for example, the […]
A branch is a parallel version of a Git repository. It is contained within the repository, but does not affect the primary or master branch allowing you to work freely without disrupting the “live” version. When you’ve made the changes you want to make, you can merge your branch back into the master branch to publish […]

Git is a version control system for tracking changes in computer files and coordinating work on those files among multiple people. It is primarily used for source code management in software development, but it can be used to keep track of changes in any set of files. As a distributed revision control system, it is […]
In HTML, a color can be specified using a hexadecimal value with an alpha channel – which specifies the opacity for a color in the form: #rrggbba Where rr (red), gg (green) and bb (blue) are hexadecimal values between 00 and ff (same as decimal 0-255). The alpha parameter is a number between 0.0 (fully […]
In HTML, a color can be specified using hue, saturation, and lightness (HSL) in the form: hsl(hue, saturation, lightness) Hue is a degree on the color wheel from 0 to 360. 0 is red, 120 is green, and 240 is blue. Saturation is a percentage value, 0% means a shade of gray, and 100% is […]
HSLA color values are an extension of HSL color values with an alpha channel – which specifies the opacity for a color. An HSLA color value is specified with: hsla (hue, saturation, lightness, alpha) The alpha parameter is a number between 0.0 (fully transparent) and 1.0 (not transparent at all)
Creates a transparent color object from hue, saturation, value and alpha (HSVA) values. Note that this is not the same as hsla, and is a color space available in Photoshop. Parameters hue: An integer 0-360 representing degrees. saturation: A percentage 0-100% or number 0-1. value: A percentage 0-100% or number 0-1. alpha: A percentage 0-100% or […]
