  • Advice for teaching student who’s colorblind?
    Having an approach with color theory made me realize the importance of it. I learned about harmony, the color scheme and support myself with technology. Since then, my cheat codes are, adobe capture and the color picker. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Beaten Tracker - I made yet another FaB life tracker app
    Sure! I'm certainly no artist either, but a little knowledge about this stuff goes a long way. There are plenty of curated or algorithmic resources for picking nice palettes if you don't feel up to the task of building one from scratch, like Lospec, ColorHunt, Coolors, and Canva. In my case, I used some basic color theory - I started with the greenish from FaB's life icon which I use as the centrepiece in my app,... - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Looking for Constructive criticism on background and ambience
    - on I picked a new color scheme - orange and red, and blue and indigo. One blue for the background and mouth, indigo for shadows, orange for lights, red for mouth and ears. In a color scheme, hue is the important part - while saturation and value can vary while keeping the color scheme intact. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Color Palettes
    Try something like this. You pick a color, and it gives you complementary colors. Here is one by Adobe. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Voxel Game like Unrailed!
    You can use a free tool called MagicaVoxel which allows you to intuitively model voxel-based characters and props. You can then create a new mesh for every “frame” of animation and swap it out through GDScript / C#. I used this method in my Pac-Man VR game (check my post history). For more complex environments and terrains, such as that of Minecraft, you can use a height map based approach. Stick to a limited and... - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
  • RoguelikeDev Does The Complete Roguelike Tutorial - Week 4
    The C++ tutorial uses libtcod's constant named colors, and switching these out with colors from Paletton has always been an improvement whenever I've done so. The previous colors for the HP bar were called dark red but they're simply not dark enough. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
  • How do You Decide Which Colors to Use for a Blanket?
    I like these online resources: and - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • Sharing Saturday #413
    I'd really recommend everyone to use a color scheme designer like Paletton or at least avoid the colors built in to libtcod. You should be naming your colors, not getting arbitrary colors from names. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago
  • A Rust server / frontend setup like it's 2022 (with axum and yew)
    (eg. If you're building something like Paletton, just try to be resource-efficient... But if you're building something that can be accomplished more along the lines of ". - Source: Reddit / 12 months ago
  • harmonious color combination
    You don't even need all that tooling for the most part. Hell, at a previous job I made a program to get between 3 and 5 harmonious color based on whichever color you want, inspired by and based on a few mathematical formulas. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • harmonious color combination
    I think you're thinking of Paletton I still use it all the time. I've also started using Color Mind a bit as well. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • harmonious color combination
    Nice, but way too limited imo. Go knock yourselves out here. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • How do you pick color schemes for your website?
    Https:// is quite good, gives complementary colours, darker and lighter shades which are good for button states etc and it will even simulate colour blindness. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Show HN: – open-source toolbox for colors
    This is really pleasant to use. For years I've used to similar effect, but I actually like the interface here a lot better. It's a bit simpler, and more straightforward. Great work! - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Any times on how I could make my house (mainly the exterior) look better?
    Try using something like paletton to find a good complimentary color scheme for your build and make things a bit more consistent. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Color questions
    Color theory can help; it doesn't have to be as in depth as a college level class, even a brief article like this one by Sandra Eng or this more in depth one on Pippin Poppycock can be reassuring and help build skill and confidence. So can sites that present color combos like Color Hunt and Colormind or palette generators like and the Canva palette generator. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • Color scheme ideas
    I like because it gives you a lot of flexibility to choose what type of pallets you want (monochrome/dual/tri/quad) and how different or similar you want the colors to be. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
  • HSLuv, a developer friendly perceptual color space
    Kinda sad that there is no distinction made between color selection and color production. RGB based color opponents (e.g. Red - cyan, green - purple) are less pleasing to the eye and culturally relevenant than RYB ones (red - green, yellow - purple). Let's say you develop a luxury theme, the yellow - purple opponency would naturally lead you to the classic colors of royality, purple and gold. A good RYB based... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • [OC] Daily COVID infections since the beginning of the pandemic.
    For most color pallete picking I use not only does it help pick colors that compliment each other but it also has "visual simulation" for checking if they are colorblind friendly. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
