Color Change?

Not critical by any means, but I noticed in the latest FreePBX Framework change log, that it states simply, color change.

After updating, I have search high and low for a color change somewhere, and I am simply curious… what color changed and where?



for what version?

Woops! Distro10.13.66-6. Sorry. Figured it would be the same for all versions.


It’s most likely that commit:

Github seems to have a hard time showing what changed though…

Have a nice day!


Not really. As the change suggests “color changes” and if looking at the code referenced you can see I am editing style sheets.

Yes, really…

Github seems to consider different lines which to my eye seem identical…

I guess that amongst other things you must have changed whitespaces or something similar because otherwise it considers different waaaaaay too much stuff it should consider identical…

I am used to using comparison/diff tools which don’t consider almost the entire file different…

Like I said, unless you changed whitespace or something similar Github produces insanely big diff files, there’s no way to really make sense of them and I am not that curious to know what changed…

Have a nice day!


It would be easier if you did not use github…

Click the “…” then click “ignore whitespace”.

I am surprised that a commit called color tweaks has stirred so much controversy.

Detailed explanation: We use LESS to manage our stylesheets. LESS turns into CSS. LESS allows us to have functions and variables in style sheets. I changed the names of variables and tweaked the base colors. EG “color tweaks”

Hi Andrew!

Sorry, old habit… (we used to use it as main repo for the open source project I work on and we still use it as a secondary repo now…

Thank you!

Make a loooooot more sense now…

Looks like LESS added a lot more :laughing: whitespace this time (or at least changed it in some way…).


I was curious about what it was (each time I update the FreePBX modules I check the release notes, attached tickets, commits, etc… because I am curious as to what was done and how (it helps me understand how it works)) but I would not have posted about it, I way just trying to help identify what it was about.

I was definitely curious as to the reason seemingly identical files were considered sooooooo different…

Trust me Andrew, I have a much bigger problem on my hands than this :wink: :wink: :wink:, looks like one of the latest updates (I am assuming the packages of the distro) broke my DAHDI (Sangoma A200) stuff… (It does not survive a reboot, I have to issue a “fwconsole restart”). :pensive:

Thank you and have a nice day!


… and I was simply just curious. No controversy here!
