Segment Timer 1.4 update

I was going to make a minor note about the small change I made to version 1.3 here, but then today decided that another web app I made for tracking issues during a live production should be rolled into this one too so that they can both be run on the same Pi and controlled with the same controller.

Version 1.4
– NEW – Added the ability to record issues that need to be addressed in post-production.
– NEW – Colors are red for talent mistakes, blue for production mistakes and yellow for misc mistakes.
– NEW – Default keys are Q for talent mistakes, W for production mistakes and E for misc mistakes.
– NEW – The R key will blank out any error recording placed, either to dismiss it entirely or so that the recorded segments show up again.
    – NEW – Color block shows up for 20 seconds so that it’s very clear in a typical Final Cut timeline, then remains as a coloured border for a further 10 seconds.
    – NEW – Text added to each colour to destinguish between Talent, Production and Misc. mistakes to be edited out.
    – NEW – Text starts black then fades away with the block.
Version 1.3
– CHANGE – set a larger line height and font size for the recorded segments, to make them easier to read on a multiview.
Version 1.2
– CHANGE – Changed the recordedSegments Div to a flexbox and set it to record the contents left to right.
– NEW – Removed the placeholder segments and now create the sections automatically when needed.
– NEW – Can have over 100 recorded segments now and the view will scroll automatically to accommodate them.
– NEW – If you have a mouse connected this area can be scrolled while in use.
– CHANGE – Changed the recorded segments to have an ‘-‘ between the segment length and ended time.
– CHANGE – When recording segments it now creates a red box and white text, then goes back to the grey text on black after 5 seconds.
– FIXED – The colour changing animation no longer gets stuck when recording segments.
– CHANGE – when the segment timer and event timer change red, they had a slight glow to them.
Version 1.1
– CHANGE – Updated the behaviour of the K key to make sure that the final segment of the show is also recorded.
– CHANGE – Removed commented out code that I have no intention of returning to.
– CHANGE – Corrected some minor typos in the code.
– CHANGE – changed the movie camera emoji to the video camera emoji as the first one doesn’t display on the Raspberry Pi.
Known Bugs:
– Resetting the Segment Timer doesn’t affect the Event Timer, which is by design. but this does sometimes lead to recorded segments looking like they are missing a second simply because the two counters are’t ‘in-sync’. If we recorded milliseconds it likely wouldn’t be an issue
– Recording a segment within the first second of an event will work, but as the length is too small it won’t be recorded. Segment 2 will then be saved in the segment 1 spot and so on.
