With its Material Design guidelines, Google began to create a set of unified ideas about how developers want developers to think about all the different aspects of their app design, ranging from basic layouts to how to use them animations effectively. As part of these guidelines, it also offered some ideas on how to best use color. Today is expanding with the launch of a new color tool that aims to help developers and designers choose the right color palette for their applications.
The new tool helps developers create and share color palettes, but, most importantly, it also comes with the ability to apply that color scheme to a sample user interface and to various components of the Material Design at CodePen, for front end developers.
Another interesting aspect of the new tool is that it automatically appreciates the readability of the text for your color scheme. This assessment is based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, which mainly focus on the contrast between text and background to help people with visual impairments, to be better read online (though someone who has ever read a lot of text dark dark on a light gray background i know it’s an issue).
