My Palette

This package handles user created color palettes scheme to be used in Python plotting libraries (matplotlib, seaborn, etch).

Users can use specific colors in accordance with their taste or company guidelines that are different from the defaults in matplotlib. Therefore, mypalette helps to create, store, and use color palettes.

It can use a text file from https://coolors.co or a list of hexadecimal codes and saves a JSON format, comprising of colors: name, hexadecimal and RGB codes.

Installation

pip install mypalette

Usage

Currently, you can choose two ways to input your palette in mypalette: From coolors.co or as a list of hexadecimal codes

From coolors

Coolors.co is a website designed to generate new palettes, pick palettes from photos, create gradients, etch.

Do download needed, proceed to https://coolors.co, and click "Start the generator" or use this set of colors.

On the top right corner, click on Export -> Code -> Download

This will save a text file named 'palette' on your computer.

Now we can use this file in mypalette:

from mypalette import LoadPalette

palette = LoadPalette()
p = palette.create_new_palette(input_txt='palette.txt', output_json='palette.json')
print(p)

{'HEXs': ['#000000', '#FFFFFF'], 'RGBs': [(0.0, 0.0, 0.0), (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)], 'Names': ['black', 'white']}

Load a compatible JSON file:

p = palette.load_palette(json_path='palette.json')

print(p)
['#000000', '#FFFFFF']

From hexadecimal

Alternatively, you can choose to use a list of hexadecimal codes as your input.

Note, such list can be obtained from the coolors.co/generate url.

p = palette.create_palette_from_hex_list(
    hexadecimal = ['#000000', '#FFFFFF'],
    output_json = 'black_and_white.json')

print(p)
{'HEXs': ['#000000', '#FFFFFF'], 'RGBs': [(0.0, 0.0, 0.0), (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)], 'Names': ['black', 'white']}
