wp is a small tool I use to generate color schemes from images, and manage desktop wallpapers.
The color extraction scripts were taken from this blog post with normalization reddit user radiosilence.
As far as I know this only relies on PIL, python image library. I was able to fulfill this dependency with the
python-pillow package on Arch Linux.
On other systems,
pip install Pillow.
$ wp add [file]
Generates color files .[file].colors and .[file].Xres which can be sourced by shell scripts and xrdb respectivly. The color files and the image are added to the backgrounds directory.
$ wp change [file]
Changes the background image to a random image from the ~/.wallpapers directory, or the file passed, and loads the .Xres file
into xrdb so xterm or urxvt will use the colors. It also links a script to ~/.colors. If you
source ~/.colors in a script
you can use the generated colors with
$ wp rm [file]
Removes the image and it's color files from the backgrounds directory.
$ wp ls
Lists the images in the backgrounds folder.
