Palette Picker. A customizable colour palette picker for Umbraco.
Palette Picker allows an editor to choose a colour palette to use on a page from a predefined selection of colour palettes.
This can be especially useful for pages where you would like colours to change often or be easily customizable.
It makes it really simple for editors to change the colour palette value, while it requires only minimum configuration from developers to set up the available colour palettes. Palette Picker will generate a series of CSS rules that can be included on any page, these can be used to style elements across the page with the same color theme. The CSS rules included contain the properties color, background-color and border-color for main classes, as well as for other optional pseudo-elements and pseudo-classes. For more info, please refer to the Documentation page.
The colour palettes are based on Paletton.com. The palettes can be configured and imported from there into the Palette Picker data type. The current version of Palette Picker only accepts the colour information imported as XML.
Here you can check an example of how Palette Picker will work on your site.
