Pantone Color Of The Day

https://www.pantone.com/colorstrology

The purpose of this project is to create an archive of all of Pantone's "Color of the Day" colors

The DailyScraper_BS.py file does the following:

  1. Scrapes the Color of the Day website to get the Color name, Pantone ID, Hex code, and 3 describing words.
  2. Appends this info to a .csv
  3. Uses that info to write a new html div section and add it to index.html (This feature was added 2/4/18, so any html text previous to that date might be formatted a bit different)

The website is now set up: https://polk54.github.io/Pantone_ColorOfTheDay/

Now I'm working on automating the process of:

  1. Running the python script everday
  2. Pushing the new index.html to GitHub

Comments and suggestions welcome!
