A library for working with color names and color values formats defined by HTML and CSS.
webcolors is a module for working with HTML/CSS color definitions.
Support is included for normalizing and converting between the following formats (RGB colorspace only; conversion to/from HSL can be handled by the colorsys module in the Python standard library):
- Specification-defined color names
- Six-digit hexadecimal
- Three-digit hexadecimal
- Integer rgb() triplet
- Percentage rgb() triplet
>>> import webcolors >>> webcolors.hex_to_name(u'#daa520') u'goldenrod'
Implementations are also provided for the HTML5 color parsing and serialization algorithms. For example, parsing the infamous “chucknorris” string into an rgb() triplet:
>>> import webcolors >>> webcolors.html5_parse_legacy_color(u'chucknorris') HTML5SimpleColor(red=192, green=0, blue=0)
