Generate awesome colors for your project
There are three ways you can generate a color for your project:
- Using the wheel
- Using RGB input boxes
- Using Hex input box
The easiest and efficient way to experiment with random color is using the wheel where you select the appropriate color on the triangle or the outer ring. You can also drag the triangle along with the ring too.
RGB boxes are useful for fine-tuning your color choices. While Hex input box is best used for copying and pasting the color code to your project source code.
