Better colors for the web.

What is this?
A simple color palette for the web. Let's be honest, out of the box, the color strings that css provides aren't... the tops. This is a set of sass/less/stylus/css variables and css classes that can help fix that.
Grab a copy of the code by downloading the zip from this page - or cloning/forking the repo.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:mrmrs/colors-saturated.git
Using the css
Simply copy colors.css to your css directory and include the file like so in the head of your html document
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/colors-saturated.css">
Using sass, stylus, less, and myth
If you'd like to customize colors.css to your liking, you can edit the source in a variety of flavors. Colors uses gulp as a taskrunner. There are individual gulp tasks for each preprocessor* Each gulp task also comes with automatic vendor prefix support, csslint output, and livereload updates built in. It's pretty sweet.
npm install -g gulp
Once that is complete you can use any preprocessor like so
Recompile everything imported in ./sass/colors.scss to css/colors.css everytime a file in the ./sass directory is updated
Recompile everything imported in ./stylus/colors.styl to ./css/colors.css everytime a file in the ./stylus directory is updated
Recompile myth/colors.css to css/colors.css everytime myth/colors.css is updated
If you would like to minify ./css/colors.css you can just run
- Except for less which doesn't seem well supported with gulp yet. Hopefully we can better support less soon.
If you are compiling less and want to run autoprefixer - you can run that on compiled css with
