We love the web. The goal of Bri11iant is to help make the internet a more inclusive place by providing developers with in-editor support for vital accessibility standards and inclusive design principles. It's often hard to tell what is and isn't an accessibility problem just from looking at your code, and it's even harder sometimes to understand why these issues may be harmful. Moreover, there are many ways to make the design of a website more inclusive past simply following WCAG standards. That's where Bri11iant comes in. As you're writing HTML (more languages coming soon!), Bri11iant can diagnose and report parts of your website that could be modified in order to provide your users a more inclusive experience.
