about this collection of color palettes
🎨 This collection aims to make it easy to find great colors for your projects. The goal is to grow this collection to cover palettes for all major colors.
You can click on any of the color in a palette to copy its HEX, RGB or HSL color code, or you can click on the button under any of the palettes to copy all the colors of that palette as HEX, RGB or HSL.
If you're looking to generate your own color palettes based on a primary color, I've created a color palette generator tool just for that called pppalette. In fact, I used pppalette myself quite a bit when creating this collection of color palettes.
If you're looking for a hex, rgb and hsl color picker, try out cccolor .
🙌 This tool is made possible thanks to chroma.js, which makes it very easy to convert color codes between HEX, RGB and HSL.
