What this is

A bunch of miscellaneous CSS 'improvements' that I, CroquemboucheCroquembouche, use on a bunch of pages because I think it makes them easier to deal with.

The changes this component makes are bunch of really trivial modifications to ease the writing experience and to make documenting components/themes a bit easier (which I do a lot). It doesn't change anything about the page visually for the reader — the changes are for the writer.

I wouldn't expect translations of articles that use this component to also use this component, unless the translator likes it and would want to use it anyway.

This component probably won't conflict with other components or themes, and even if it does, it probably won't matter too much.


On any wiki:

[[include :scp-wiki:component:croqstyle]]

This component is designed to be used on other components. When using on another component, be sure to add this inside the component's [[iftags]] block, so that users of your component are not forced into also using Croqstyle.

CSS changes

Reasonably-sized footnotes

Stops footnotes from being a million miles wide, so that you can actually read them.

.hovertip { max-width: 400px; }

Monospace edit/code

Makes the edit textbox monospace, and also changes all monospace text to Fira Code, the obviously superior monospace font.

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Fira+Code:wght@400;700&display=swap');
:root { --mono-font: "Fira Code", Cousine, monospace; }
#edit-page-textarea, .code pre, .code p, .code, tt, .page-source { font-family: var(--mono-font); }
.code pre * { white-space: pre; }
.code *, .pre * { font-feature-settings: unset; }

Teletype backgrounds

Adds a light grey background to <tt> elements ({{text}}), so code snippets stand out more.

tt {
  background-color: var(--swatch-something-bhl-idk-will-fix-later, #f4f4f4);
  font-size: 85%;
  padding: 0.2em 0.4em;
  margin: 0;
  border-radius: 6px;

No more bigfaces

Stops big pictures from appearing when you hover over someone's avatar image, because they're stupid and really annoying and you can just click on them if you want to see the big version.

.avatar-hover { display: none !important; }

Breaky breaky

Any text inside a div with class nobreak has line-wrapping happen between every letter.

.nobreak { word-break: break-all; }

Code colours

Add my terminal's code colours as variables. Maybe I'll change this to a more common terminal theme like Monokai or something at some point, but for now it's just my personal theme, which is derived from Tomorrow Night Eighties.

Also, adding the .terminal class to a fake code block as [[div class="code terminal"]] gives it a sort of pseudo-terminal look with a dark background. Doesn't work with [[code]], because Wikidot inserts a bunch of syntax highlighting that you can't change yourself without a bunch of CSS. Use it for non-[[code]] code snippets only.

Quick tool to colourise a 'standard' Wikidot component usage example with the above vars: link

:root {
  --c-bg: #393939;
  --c-syntax: #e0e0e0;
  --c-comment: #999999;
  --c-error: #f2777a;
  --c-value: #f99157;
  --c-symbol: #ffcc66;
  --c-string: #99cc99;
  --c-operator: #66cccc;
  --c-builtin: #70a7df;
  --c-keyword: #cc99cc;
.terminal, .terminal > .code {
  color: var(--c-syntax);
  background: var(--c-bg);
  border: 0.4rem solid var(--c-comment);
  border-radius: 1rem;

Debug mode

Draw lines around anything inside .debug-mode. The colour of the lines is red but defers to CSS variable --debug-colour.

You can also add div.debug-info.over and div.debug-info.under inside an element to annotate the debug boxes — though you'll need to make sure to leave enough vertical space that the annotation doesn't overlap the thing above or below it.

…like this!

.debug-mode, .debug-mode *, .debug-mode *::before, .debug-mode *::after {
  outline: 1px solid var(--debug-colour, red);
  position: relative;
.debug-info {
  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  transform: translateX(-50%);
  font-family: 'Fira Code', monospace;
  font-size: 1rem;
  white-space: nowrap;
.debug-info.over { top: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info.under { bottom: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info p { margin: 0; }

エマは、サイト-184の異常美術・工芸品部門への異動を受け入れたとき、他の財団スタッフとの交流活動に参加するよう勧められた — 「彼らがあなたと知り合い、あなたが違う施設の文化に慣れるための方法です」と、財団キャリア相談センターのいつも陽気な女性は彼女に言っていた。

そのような活動のなかでも彼女が楽しみにしていたものは一握りしかなく、その一つは部門で年一回開かれる「ファクト・オブ・フィクション」イベントだった。写真、レプリカ、ときおり本物のアーティファクトが展示され、選抜の職員がそのオブジェクトの起源、異常性質、使用法について、物語や説明 — そのうち1つだけが真実だ — を伝えるのだ。参加者は正しいと思ったものを選び、そして祝宴の後に、一番の正解者が発表された。

だがそのイベントはまだ数か月も先のことであり、それで彼女は — その時点において — 最もいい選択肢に思えるもので妥協した。それは、釣魚評議会との小旅行だった。

実のところ、エマは以前に何度か釣りに行ったことがある。彼女は釣り竿を持っていなかったが、それは問題ではなかった — 正直なところ、彼女は借りた釣り竿を使うことはめったになかった。彼女にとって釣りとは、友人たちと船の上で飲み、くつろぎ、日光浴やおしゃべりを楽しむ口実としてするものだった。彼女の最も好きな釣りの思い出では、魚はほとんど重要ではなく、しかし彼女の当時の破局や祖母の死を彼女を昔も今も心から大切にしている人たちと深く話し合えたことがとても重要であった。










彼女はそれに気づかず、その注意は完全に、全くもって、魚に向けられていた。彼女は生き生きとし、意志と機知の戦いに巻き込まれ、何としても勝とうとし、魚が彼女に無駄な格闘をするたび弱まっていくのを感じ — そして釣り糸はたるんだ。




帰りの船はゆったりとしたもので、エマは船の穏やかな揺れにリラックスしていた。彼女が船着き場に下りたとき、ある人 — 若い女性が、手を伸ばしほほ笑み、エマもほほ笑んだ。
