For generating attractive random colors

Project description

randomcolor Build Status

A port of David Merfield's randomColor (currently davidmerfield/randomColor@0.4.4) to python. Tested against python versions 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 3.9, pypy, and pypy3.


Generating a completely random color:

import randomcolor
rand_color = randomcolor.RandomColor()

Generating 3 random blue colors:

print(rand_color.generate(hue="blue", count=3))

Refer to the tests for examples and README at davidmerfield/randomColor for full usage details.


Run python test to run the test suite with stored expected colors generated from a seeded randomcolor object.

Run python tests/ to generate an html page with random colors generated from using this package. Open randomcolors.html to confirm that the colors fall within the parameters pased in. This is in addition to unit tests since it's much easier to visually confirm that the colors generated are correct than determine correctness programatically.
