Mac OS X developer color tools
Small tools to import and export colors from the Mac OS X ColorPicker palettes (.CLR).
- Adobe Swatch Exchange (.ASE) import and export.
- Hex color list to system palette.
- Simple UIColor category generation from color lists.
- Color search&replace from .xib/.storyboard
You can find binaries of those tools in the Releases tab up there.
This is a desktop app that allows you to drop an ASE file on it and imports it into ColorPicker.
This is a command line tool that reads a Adobe Swatch Excahnge (ASE) file and outputs a .clr file that you can
copy to your ~/Library/Colors directory and use from the standard ColorPicker (third tab, palette). It can also install it for you with
- Supports RGB/CMYK and Gray colorspaces (Lab values will show black).
- Right now it ignores groups in the ASE file.
Filename.clr in the same path.
Ase2Clr FileName.ase -i
Will install the generated file in ~/Library/Colors. You might need to re-open the colorpicker for it to refresh the color lists.
This tool allows you to read a Clr file or a named ColorPicker palette and export an ASE file that you can load in Adobe Suite.
Clr2Ase "Name of color list"
Name of color list.ase.
This tool reads a file containing a list of hex-coded colors and outputs a .clr file for ColorPicker or installs the list in the system color picker as a new palette.
The input format is #RRGGBB colors followed by their names, separated by a space, in separate lines:
#fa3ada Almost-Magenta #cada32 Green-Mustard #ff6347 Tomato ...
The usage is analog to Ase2Clr:
Html2Clr File.txt [-i]
This tool creates UIColor (iOS) categories from system colorlists (either installed or from a .clr file). Note that this tool is very basic. Duplication of methods is not checked, and only RGBA colors are generated.
Clr2Obj "Color List"|File.clr [CategoryName]
This is a python script to search and replace colors inside xib/storyboard files (only xml format).
BEWARE: This will overwrite the file! Back up your file first (or have it commited in version control).
xibcolor file [-l|replacements|["#fromcolor" "#tocolor"]] file a .storyboard or xib in new XML format -l list colors present in the file replacements a file consisting of pairs of hex-coded from->to colors #color a pair of colors to replace
