WebColorPicker is a plugin addition for the Mac OS X operating system. Once installed it is accessed from the main OS X color selection panel (usually recognized on OS X by the colorful "color wheel"); it is available for integrated use with any OS X application that uses the system wide color selection panel. Apple provides 5 color pickers, the "color wheel" and 4 others.
The Apple standard color pickers are not particularly appropriate for directly managing RGB components or for those doing web design with HTML or Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).
Software developers often need to programatically specify colors using declarative statements. WebColorPicker provides automatic generation of code snippets that define the color under inspection by the system color panel.
WebColorPicker supports inspection and setting of colors as HTML color codes which use Hexadecimal doublets to specify Red, Green, and Blue additive color components. Paste "in" a color code from a text editor to see the color. Pick a color with a mouse click then paste a ready to use color code into the html or software source code.
