Agave is a simple GNOME application for generating colorschemes.
Agave lets you select a starting color and generate six different kinds of colorschemes. The colors can then be copied to the clipboard for easy use in HTML and CSS. It is currently a very simple but useful utility. More functionality will be added in future versions.
Agave was previously named GNOME Colorscheme.
Here are some key features of "Agave":
Generate 6 different types of color schemes: Complements, Split Complements, Triads, Tetrads, Analogous, and Monochromatic
Select a color that's displayed anywhere on the screen ("dropper" tool)
Easily change the lightness or saturation of a colorscheme with a toolbar button
Copy the hexstring (e.g. "#336699") of a color to the clipboard for use in CSS and HTML files
Save your favorite colors to a 'Favorites' list for easy reference and export your favorites as a Gimp Palette file
Navigate back and forward through history of previously selected colors
Choose colors from a palette of pre-defined "web-safe" colors (more palettes to come soon)
Drag and Drop between Agave and the Gimp, as well as many other programs
Generate a random colorscheme if you're stuck and need some inspiration.
User interface translated into English, Dutch (nl), German (de), Spanish (es_ES), Brazilian Portugese (pt_BR), Russian (ru), Czech (cs), and Bulgarian (bg).
GTK+ version 2.8.x
What's New in This Release:
Moved user configuration directory from ~/.agave to ~/.local/share/agave to reduce home directory dotfile pollution. Configuration files will be migrated automatically.
Added the ability to use different palette files. 4 palette files are shipped by default (Websafe, GNOME icon palette, Tango palette, and Visibone palette). Palettes are standard Gimp Palette files (.gpl) and can be added by dropping a file in ~/.local/share/agave/palettes
Fixed an issue when compiling with g++ 4.1
Improve handling of removing multiple colors from the favorites list
Building from git now requires Intltool 0.35
