Provide a color picker or predefined colors when creating categories


(Nowindlee) #1

When creating a category, we can type color code manually, but it’s not convenient. If discourse can provide a color picker or predefined colors, that will be great.

Would definitely like to do it, but never had time in the rush to launch. Some ideas:

  • show existing colors for categories there so you can pick one sufficiently different enough from what’s already out there (oops two blue categories!)

  • allow selecting white or black text for better color dynamics

  • have a predefined set of 16 “designery” default colors to choose from so you don’t have to think so much about colors

Pull requests welcome in this area!
