ColorNamer is a gem that allows you to name color from RGB value or from HTML hash. It will find the closest color and return a HTML hash, name and shade of that color.


require 'color_namer'

ColorNamer.name_from_html_hash('#FF3300') # returns ["FF2400", "Scarlet", "Red"]
ColorNamer.name_from_rgb(205, 94, 94) # returns ["CD5C5C", "Indian Red", "Red"]

# You can also pass any Color object to name method, 0, 80, 30) # returns ["7AAC21", "Lima", "Green"]

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
