Agave(1) colorscheme designer for the gnome desktop


agave [options]


Agave is a program for generating colorschemes from a starting color. It currently supports five different colorscheme types:

 * Complements: The starting color and the color directly across the color wheel
 * Split Complements: the starting color and the two colors that are slightly
   offset from the color directly across the color wheel
 * Triads: the starting color and the two colors 1/3 of the way around the wheel
   in each direction.
 * Tetrads: The starting color and its complement plus another color slightly
   offset from the starting color and _its_ complement
 * Analogous: The starting color and two colors slightly offset in hue
 * Monochromatic: The starting color and two other colors of the same hue, one
   lighter, and one darker

Using Agave

 * Choose a starting color by clicking on the color button or selecting a color
   from the palette, and then select a scheme type from the combo box.  The
   generated scheme will be displayed in the main window. 
 * The left-most Color in the main window is the currently-selected color.  This
   color can be added to your favorites list with the '+' button in the bottom
   right, or with the keyboard shortcut 'Ctrl+D'.
 * To make one of the other colors in the scheme the currently-selected color, you
   can double-click the colorswatch.
 * To copy a hexstring representation of the color (e.g. #FFFFFF) to the
   clipboard, right-click the colorswatch and select the 'copy' menu
