    A great idea!

    To me, it seems that colornames.org is the equivalent of wikipedia.org but for colors.

    👍 Pros:    Simple|Easy to use

  • Grayfruit Official Colors Update
    For those who haven't seen the original post, TL;DR colornames.org allows you to name all the colors of the RGB 255 spectrum. We worked to get the names of the colors that make up the grayfruit logo to be the top names for those colors. I have two updates on the situation. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Why can we imagine new words, creatures, architectures, but not colors?
    How about imagining new words/names for colors? Check out this Naming Colors website. It can be fun & eye opening in terms of how different people see the same color. Source: about 1 year ago
  • How does color get its name?
    There are some standard names for some hex codes which you can see a list of here. I would recommend against using any of the more distinctive colour names (e.g. Alice Blue) on this list unless refering to these exact hex codes. Otherwise call it whatever you want to within reason. There are plenty of colour lists around which you can use as inspiration. When creating a palette for a company it's very common to... Source: over 1 year ago

  • The Official Grayfruit Colors on colornames.org
    There are six colors that have recently been named on colornames.org, pulled straight from the raw logo. Five out of the six are the dominating names for their color, but Official Grayfruit Sheen has a long way to go before it beats out Froth in #fafafa. Go upvote Official Grayfruit Sheen to help it win in the color wars. Source: over 1 year ago

  • Iterate huge, computationally intense, file at build time?
    This website has almost 3 million color names: https://colornames.org I downloaded into a JSON file. I have a website like https://www.color-hex.com where each color has it's own page, built using incremental static regeneration. I now want to include the color name if it exists on the hex color page. Source: about 2 years ago

  • Any website/webpage that has a huge megalist of user-submitted or AI generated smell descriptions?
    Since I'm uncreative I kinda wanna have a list of smell descriptions to go through as I need it for some ideas, maybe a database/index/megalist typa website or page that lists such smell/scent descriptions which are either submitted by many users or are maybe even AI generated? Closest thing would be to use colors.lol or colornames.org and use those names as smells but it's still not as convenient. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Ah yes, becquse guys can't know colour theory and girls have to know every possible shade. [meme]
    Yes but that still doesn't excuse it, I like naming shades of colours in my freetime on colornames.org, and I'm a cis male. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Question Regarding Subdivision Coloring Shortcuts
    First, click on them normally. Then, click on the more colors tab - it will show you the hex code. Put that in a trusted website (i use colornames.org) and it tells you the name and colors similar in the box to the side. Source: over 2 years ago

  • Why it took us thousands of years to see the colour violet
    I agree with your general sentiments. The game idea seems a bit much lol, but it could be fun.
