Color picker for Plan 9. It has HSLuv, HPLuv, and RGB color space modes and is intended to be used mainly by external programs that need a way to change their color palette.

The implementation of the H* color spaces is taken from here.


Clone, run mk install


See the man page.



At this moment the only two programs that actually use picker are Orca and zuke. Nevertheless, since it supports loading themes, it makes sense to describe how to get them on Plan 9:


The themes are stored in $home/lib/theme. Once an app that supports picker is running, make it start the picker and in case you have the plumb rule from the man page in /mnt/plumb/rules, you can just plumb any theme and the app will receive the new colors.
