Options

Tools > Options > Miscellaneous > Color Codes Preview

Regex for enabled mime-types

Default value is ^text/(x-)?(css|less|sass|scss)$. If you would like to disable/enable some mime-types, please change the default regex. This pattern is used when the plugin checks a mime-type.

Resolve Sass and Less Variables

This option is false by default. If you would like to resolve Sass and Less variables, please check it.

NOTE: The simplest cases only e.g. $green: #0f0;

Named Colors

This option is false by default. If you would like to show named colors, please check it.

NOTE

  • Colors may be shown if they are not color codes. e.g. "#feature" contains #fea. This plugin recognizes it as a hex color code.
  • If you use the GTK Look and Feel, you cannot change an alpha value in the color chooser.
  • Hsl or hsla color values may not be changed correctly when you use the color chooser. (There may be 1% errors.)
