colorify

Colorify is a collection of color tools that comes in three forms: a website, a command line tool, and a node.js library:

1. Website

The website is built on react, and contains a few toy apps that can manipulate and display colors.

2. Command Line Tool

The cli can be installed by running npm install -g colorify. This will add colorify to your PATH. For the command line options, you can run colorify --help:

> colorify --help

Usage: colorify [options] [command]


Commands:

  help                     print help information (alias for using -h or --help)
  random [options]         get a random color
  stats [options] [color]  get color stats about an input string

Options:

  -h, --help     output usage information
  -v, --version  output the version number
> colorify random --help

  Usage: random [options]

  get a random color

  Options:

    -h, --help             output usage information
    -f, --format <format>  css format types: hex, rgb, percent, hsl, hwb
> colorify stats --help

  Usage: stats [options] [color]

  get color stats about an input string

  Options:

    -h, --help         output usage information
    -p, --path <path>  only show the specified path (i.e. schemes.tetradic.2)

3. Node.js Library

In it’s current state, this is a pretty lame node.js library. All it does is expose access to some other helpful color libraries and includes a few helper functions that were needed for the colorify website. The libraries that are included are:

You can install the library by running npm install colorify and use it:

var colorify = require('colorify');
console.log(Object.keys(colorify.lib)); // outputs:
                                        // [
                                        //   'color',
                                        //   'colorBlind',
                                        //   'colorHarmony',
                                        //   'colorQuantize',
                                        //   'colorScheme',
                                        //   'colorStats',
                                        //   'colorConverter',
                                        //   'colorName',
                                        //   'onecolor'
                                        // ]
