Pixel Stats

Script created by Haloflooder. Idea thought up by CopherNeue

Description

Pixel Stats is a script that tells you the total amount of pixels for each color (outputs the RGB values) along with the percentage. It could be useful for people who are curious about what colors they are using the most for their artwork.

Features

- Analyzes the image and spits out the data about the pixels!
- Lists the colors as a color group (red, orange, blue, etc)
- You also have the ability to analyze part of an image by using the select tool! (But see the bug section first)

Limitation

This script can only get the stats from the current layer you selected. The API isn't flexible enough for the script to get the stats from the entire image. To get the stats for the entire image, you need to flatten the layers to 1 layer.

DISCLAIMER

DO NOT use this script with an image with lots and lots of colors or LARGE images otherwise you will run the risk of crashing Aseprite. Pixel art should be fine for the most part unless you have more than 1000 colors.
Save your project before you use the script!

Bugs

Aseprite crashes if the active layer you selected is only partially full. So there needs to be a background in the layer in order for the script to not crash Aseprite. The bug is caused by Aseprite's scripting ability so this issue cannot be fixed until Aseprite fixes the bug.
The selection feature only works with a single rectangle selection. Wands, polygons, multiple selections, etc won't work since the Aseprite scripting feature is still a WIP.

Requirements

Aseprite version v1.2.9
A text editing tool such as Notepad++, Atom, etc. Also, for the sake of your sanity. Don't use Microsoft Notepad.
And some effort
