First: Don't get bogged down by random HN commenters' feature requests. Second: I have a feature request. I'd love a native version for Mac OS with a magnifying glass thing that allows me to select a color somewhere else on my screen, and then suggest complimentary colors. I'd gladly pay for that!
I have it set to CMD + Shift + C. Great to have it easily accessible
Then one could take a quick screenshot of their screen and just paste it into the web app.
1) Requesting a feature immediately after was intended as a joke.
2) It still doesn't contradict it. The first point merely advices the programmer to "not get overwhelmed by feature requests". Such an advice is not contradictory to making one from a formal logic perspective.
I think something needs to be done to better indicate "other wheel selections" (ie - to move to "square" or "analogous", etc) - while I discovered it fairly quickly, it wasn't as intuitive as I think it could have been.
Beyond that it's a great tool, and the pricing for the more advanced version is decent. That said, it wouldn't take much for someone to build something like this into say, a VSCode plugin or whatnot, so I'm curious what your plans are to stay ahead of that possibility?
Thanks for the feedback!
I would have put the arrows down where "complementary" and "analogous" and made them more visible rather than elongated and thin.
All in all, this is really cool! I've used a few color pickers with color brewer (http://colorbrewer2.org/) being the most advanced. This seems to be right in the middle of simple and advanced color selections which is pretty sweet.
This one is nicer-looking for palettes, though, and has more functionalities :)
Convert #ee4035 to rgb(234, 64, 53). Subtract those values from max RGB domain (255) and take square root of difference of squares. i.e sqrt(255^2 - 238^2) etc.
You end up with rgb(92, 247, 250), or the cyan color mentioned above. You can also check this in several other complementary calculators.
I could be missing something.

(There are some genetic disorders where an organism have 3 of one chromosome. Trisomy its called.)
Which X is inactive is somewhat random however so it seems that it reduces the instance of color blindness.
The thing is, these genes are in XY chromosome in males, and thus we only have a single copy for each of these genes. Women have two copies of each gene, so even if one goes wrong, the remaining one can express the cones.
Funny thing is woman with a defective gen usually just goes unnoticed, but the defective gen in some cases can express a fourth kind of cone with a peak sensitivity between M and L cones, allowing them to perceive colors that usual humans can't perceive.
As someone who loves hacking together projects at times, I can see myself using this to take out the initial headache of picking color schemes.
I'm not really the target market, I don't think. But my first thought as I was playing with it was "can I upload my own images/logos and have the colors displayed on my stuff?"
So, like the top comment said--don't get bogged down with random suggestions. But, here's mine:
If a premium user could upload their own SVG (or multiple) that adhere's to some kind of standard that lets you style it up with the colors like you're doing with the preset ones, that might be useful for visualizing the colors on their brand.
In any case:
> "Ability to bookmark your favorite colors for later."
Is this read-only? Can I share such links with clients (i.e., people who aren't using the paid version)?
What that said, some sort of web font integration would be a nice touch. Begin able to show a less design-minded clients a "rough draft" of colors and fonts would be helpful.
If not, if anyone can suggest anything for doing a simple, rough draft-y "style guide", that would be helpful.
Thanks again. Nice work.
I would add HSL colors and ability to download color scheme.
Bonus points for making a good responsive layout. I haven't fully evaluated it, but it seems functional from my phone so you beat adobe küler or whatever it is called.
Edit: spoke too soon. First colorpicker broke on 2nd interaction. Brave on android.
One suggestion, make the two circles in the color wheel that you can drag slightly different (at least). Maybe just line thickness, shape, filled/open something to note that dragging one will produce the opposite results from the other. Maybe make only one of them draggable?
I know it doesn't really work this way, but I only figured out by accident that dragging to the orange/blue vs blue/orange produced totally different results.
In the future would there be a way to enter a hex code and have the system work off that? That's the only thing it's missing (for me).
I read the first two sentences, then scrolled a little faster trying to figure out if they were going to post a patreon link for basically donations, and then scrolled faster like what even is this, all to find a normal expected subscriptions page. WTF?
At least on my mobile Chrome on Android.
I can only set a color once, then the black selectors just wiggle around in place whenever I choose a color.
Feedback for mobile safari - it would be helpful if the wheel was fixed to the top of the window (position:sticky?). Not the end of the world to scroll, but there’s quite a bit of back and forth as-is.
As a tip, maybe try to not include your entire life story on the "upgrade" page ;)
I have too focused on solving the problem for finding color schemes specifically in web design.
Tell me what do you think - https://csscolors.io
Also -- really sell it. I had to dig for a while to find the upgrade plans and what they get me.
I wish I could feed it a color and get options from there.
