Just ran across this trying to find a decent color picker for ST.

Giving Color Tools a try. Once I select a hex color in the editor and open Color Tools, it shows the hex value in the picker. But now how do I get the new color back into the editor? Is it just a cut and paste operation? I thought this was more automatic than that. Am I missing something?

Also, you apparently have to type in some color first and select the text before Color Tools will open with CTRL+C+C? I can't use it to just quickly pick a color and insert it without already having a color there? It'd be great if you could pop open Color Tools at any time and insert a new color instead of just changing existing colors. I know you can open Color Tools from the tray. But there are several color picker apps out there that allow me to do that. I want something that feels more integrated with ST.

Thanks!
Tyree

Hello Tyree,

Yes, since Color Tools is not exactly a plugin, it is just an external application (and can be used not only with Sublime, but also with any other editor app), it is not possible to do some things. Currently, the Color Tools window can be called by selecting a color and pressing Ctrl+C+C or by selecting manually from the system tray. And you need to copy new color and paste it back to Sublime also manually (Ctrl+C in Color Tools, Ctrl+V in Sublime -- usually your color in Sublime already selected). Sure, this is not thorough integration (although still quite usable as for me).

I have started new color picker plugin specially for Sublime Text, and I hope it will be finished as soon as possible. In that plugin, you do not need even to select a color anymore, you just move the caret and hit a shortcut, and it perfectly finds any color value under the cursor. Or you hit a shortcut to open the color picker window to generate a new color value.

But some ideas about "how it should be" still cannot be realized.
For example, I would like to add the command "Select color" to the autocompletion list when your cursor is in color (or when you edit, for example, CSS it should guess where a user may want to insert a new color value). But looks like it is not possible to execute custom commands from the autocompletion list.

P.S. New home of Color Tools is now here: http://indasoftware.com/colortools/
