Change highlight/selection color #504
To a "human readable" color from http://lexadecimal.com/
No other reason than just because we can. These colors look good:
f055ae (fossae): A large nocturnal reddish-brown catlike mammal (Cryptoprocta ferox) of the civet family, found in the rain forests of Madagascar.
fe11a5 (fellas): chap: a boy or man; "that chap is your host"; "there's a fellow at the door"; "he's a likable cuss"; "he's a good bloke".
Saw this, and wrote a script to generate all the possible colors within a range around a given color code. I could further tweak it to lean towards certain hues, for now it just generates evenly.
Here is my output, tweaked a bit with a few definitions and groupings.
The "diff" number you see, is how many notches off it is, tallied from all 3 sections.
Thanks! I'll probably post the script up on github later just to do it. I wrote it in PHP so it's a little slow though. It basically has the logic to build all RGB combinations within a given variance from the original provided color, then does the number/letter replacements and checks each replacement against /usr/share/dict/words. It was fun to write though. I had to optimize it quite a bit ( again because of the PHP ) to even get it to finish in a decent amount of time :-p
