Map Sidebar Legibility Upgrades en

Installations 18 Likes 0

Provides a number of improvements to entity and marker text formatting in the side panel of map Explore views:

  • Text alignment is set to justify by default for a cleaner column look, but can be customized.
  • Font size is increased slightly to compensate for the font face being different from that used in the rest of Kanka. You can change it as well if you use an altogether different font.
  • Adds a delimiting line between the marker’s description and the associated entity’s entry, when both are present.

The following properties can be added to your campaign CSS for easy customization:

#map-body .sidebar {
--map-sidebar-text-align: justify;
--map-sidebar-hyphenate: manual; /* Set to 'auto' for automatic hyphenation (Firefox and Safari only; support depends on your language) */
--map-sidebar-font-size: 15px; /* Ideal for Source Sans Pro */

More sidebar goodness

This theme pairs well with Scrollable Map Sidebar for space optimization.
