HEX

Online Color Picker and Color Conversion Tool

Just a few hours ago I finished and deployed my new online service and very first endeavor in the interesting world of colors and color theory. Say hi to AcidJs.ColorConverter!

Features:

  • Native HTML5 color picker.
  • Color conversion to and from HEX, RGB, HSL, CMYK, HSV,  etc.
  • Color tints, tones and shades.
  • CMYK and RGB color charts, powered by Google Charts.
  • Inspirational color schemes.
  • Detailed information about the selected color.
  • Option to save the raw JSON data, containing the details of the selected color.
  • About 900 named color equivalents.

Built on top of HTML5 WebComponents (AcidJs.XTabs and AcidJs.XOverlay), and utilizing Object.observe() and the (not-so-new) input “color” type (sorry, no fallback for browsers, which do not support it and that’s on purpose!) and using the data from the brilliant ColorHexa service, which I transform to JSON via the REST API running on my server.
