A web app that provides a name for a color. EZPZ.

Example usage GIF

Key Features

  • Over 15,000 color names ⚡️
  • Accepts both hex and rgb formats 🎨

Example

If you enter #fb8a70, you'll receive the name of SALMON NIGIRI along with the hex and rgb color representations, which would be #fb8a70 and rgb(251, 138, 112), respectively.

You might be asking yourself, "What is SALMON NIGIRI"?

My answer: " Who the hell knows? 🤷‍"
