Color Palette Generator

Color Palette Generator

This weekend I started a new Javascript project I called the Super Easy Color Palette Thing! (It needs a better name.) You can pick three colors and get hex codes for them, or you can roll the dice and generate a random palette. Some of the completely random palettes are actually very nice, and I’ve been using them in my #100daysofcharacters project. Oh, and there’s a lightswitch button, for when you need colors that work on a dark background.

These features will be added over time:

  • Different blend modes
  • 12-color palettes & other variations
  • Ability to copy hex codes of the in-between colors
  • Sharing/saving capability
  • Responsive design for mobile

You can play with it at ruthieswebsite.com/palette.
