The Palette Picker

I’ve been snuffling around in my archives, dusting off long-forgotten back-up CDs and such, and found an interesting  wee toy I’d almost forgotten writing.

It’s a basic palette picker, written as a web-page, which allows the user to choose a web-page colour scheme from the 216 basic colours.

There are four colour-able areas. You fill them by clicking a colour from the panel on the left, and then in one of the colour-able areas. A cookie will save the scheme you decided on, and CSS codes for the color are given.

I did say it’s basic : I wrote it in 2002, using Javascript,  before the days of JQuery. The code is embedded rather than linked, so it’s easy to see ( and modify if you choose ).

Who knows, it may be useful, but probably more likely a 5-minute diversion. Have at it!
