## Installation

#### pip

```sh
$ pip install chromatic
```

#### Manual

```sh
$ git clone https://github.com/prakashdanish/chromatic.git && cd chromatic
$ python3 setup.py install
```

#### Imgur API
If you wish to use `--imgur` option which uploads the generated file to imgur and copies the image link to the clipboard, you'd need the API keys, namely `client_id` and `client_secret`
These are fairly easy to obtain.
1. Register [here](https://imgur.com/signin?redirect=https%3A%2F%2Fapi.imgur.com%2Foauth2%2Faddclient)
2. Copy your keys to `~/.chromatic.conf`

```conf
[DEFAULT]
client_id=<your_id>
client_secret=<your_secret>
```

Your config file should already be present in your home dir `~/.chromatic.conf` and if it's not, then run `chromatic` once without any options or create the file manually.

## Usage

```sh
usage: chromatic [-h] [--color COLOR] [--size SIZE] [--imgur] [--nosave] [--open]
[--path PATH] [--name NAME]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
--color COLOR HEX color code
--size SIZE size of the image in LxB
--imgur upload image to imgur and return URL
--nosave don't save file locally
--open open imgur URL in browser
--path PATH path to the file
--name NAME name of the image file generated
```

## Why?
I've had countless instances wherein I need a solid background image with a given size and color, and after going through the various solid background generators on the web, I end up using photoshop to do the same, which in itself is a tedious task.
