Changing the default text color (black/white) on buttons is a common question that keeps coming up.
Hopefully this will help people better understand how to do that.

### Extending Existing Palettes

Sometimes it is easier to extend an existing color palette to change a few properties
than to define a whole new palette. You can use `$mdThemingProvider.extendPalette`
to quickly extend an existing color palette.

<hljs lang="js">
angular.module('myApp', ['ngMaterial'])
.config(function($mdThemingProvider) {

// Extend the red theme with a few different colors
// Extend the red theme with a different color and make the contrast color black instead of white.
// For example: raised button text will be black instead of white.
var neonRedMap = $mdThemingProvider.extendPalette('red', {
'500': 'ff0000'
'500': '#ff0000',
'contrastDefaultColor': 'dark'

// Register the new color palette map with the name `neonRed`
$mdThemingProvider.definePalette('neonRed', neonRedMap);

// Use that theme for the primary intentions
