Calling from Other Plugins

To commands are provided to assist in calling a color picker from other plugins. Info is shared between the plugins via a settings file. It does not have to exist on disk; it can exist only in memory for the sole purpose of sharing the return. It is advised to use a unique name for the settings file. The data is returned in the settings key color_pick_return. It is advised to set color_pick_return to None in your settings file before calling any of the commands. So you can tell if it set teh variable or not.


This command is used to test if ColorPicker is installed.

>> settings = sublime.load_settings('my_shared.sublime-settings')
>> settings.set('color_pick_return', None)
>> sublime.run_command('color_pick_api_is_available', {'settings': 'my_shared.sublime-settings'})
>> print(settings.get('color_pick_return'))


This command is used to call a color picker and get the selected value. It takes a setings file and an optional default_color.

>> settings = sublime.load_settings('my_shared.sublime-settings')
>> settings.set('color_pick_return', None)
>> sublime.run_command('color_pick_api_get_color', {'settings': 'my_shared.sublime-settings', 'default_color': '#ff0000'})
>> print(settings.get('color_pick_return'))
