Material Design Color Picker is a custom color picker plugin for macOS that allows users to navigate color swatches and select colors from Google's Material Design Color Palette.
Once installed, the color picker is available systemwide within any macOS application that utilizes the standard color panel (aka NSColorPanel) for color selection, including:
- Acorn 4.5+
- Pixelmator 3.4+
- macOS System Apps
- and many other third-party macOS applications.
Requires macOS 10.11 (or higher). Additionally, because it requires newer NSCollectionView APIs, it will only load within applications that were linked against the 10.11 (or higher) SDK.
