The New Defaults: A Sass Color Thesaurus

A Sass replacement for the standard CSS named color system. Provides more visually appealing hues for many CSS keywords; adds new colors with more relevant and easily remembered names. Inspired by Ingrid Sundberg’s color thesaurus and the work of Adam Morse.

To use

Include _color-map.scss and _color-generator.scss in your project:

@import 'maps/_color-map.scss';
@import 'functions/_color-generator.scss';

Use any of the named colors in your Sass:

body { background: color(sky); }

A complete visual guide to The New Defaults is available on Github Pages.
