Improved keyboard navigation & accessibility

Accessibility and keyboard navigation are incredibly important to us for two reasons:

  1. Our vision at Basedash is to enable everyone within a company to easily access the data they need to
  2. Basedash is built for power-users, and we want to reduce the time it takes to take action on your data

We've been consistently updating the UI components within our app to be as accessible as possible. The latest change we've made is to our dropdown menu component, which now uses the latest accessibility standards, and adds full keyboard navigation.

We'll continue updating our components and plan to eventually open-source our component library for others to use.
