Quartam Color Library for LiveCode helps developers manage color schemes, convert color definitions to and from red-green-blue triplets, and derive brighter or darker colors for an attractive and consistent user interface.
Quartam Color Library makes it easier to apply colors as found in HTML pages, C and Java code, even if they were defined as CSS 3 standard color names, raw hexadecimal values or in HSV, HSB or CMYK. In addition, you can derive brighter or darker colors using several algorithms. Finally, you can store these colors in a central repository using custom names.
Best of all, it is written in 100% LiveCode, no externals needed! And it works for your version and platform: Revolution 2.8.1 through LiveCode 6.0.1 on Desktop (Windows, Mac and Linux), Server (LiveCode Server and On-Rev) and Mobile (iOS and Android).
As a young product, it doesn't yet have all the bells and whistles of libraries that have been around for decades. While it has proven its worth in our own projects, you may have additional requirements for your own projects.
We are happy to investigate and address its limitations in upcoming releases.
Given that Quartam Color Library for LiveCode is available as open source under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL), you are welcome to contribute to its development.
