new Chrome extension: extractCSS · Oct 13, 2013
I spent yesterday afternoon creating a Chrome extension using Adnan Topal’s extractCSS library. I found extractCSS.com a few months back, I think via Hacker News, and thought it was a cool idea. It lets you paste a chunk of HTML code and it will extract the CSS classes, IDs, and inline styles used in that HTML. It produces a skeleton stylesheet with rules for those IDs and classes, and inline styles already filled in.
Chrome extensions · May 15, 2013
I’ve written my first Chrome extensions because I discovered that ColourLovers has an API. Both extensions are about palettes, either using them or creating them. Page Colourizer grabs a random palette or pattern and applies it haphazardly to the current page. Some of the results are pretty garish, but it’s entertaining. It’s a fun way to discover new ColourLovers palettes at least. The other extension, Colour Extractor, grabs up to five colors from the current page and lets you make a palette with them. It also shows information about each color it extracts, and if a color isn’t already named on ColourLovers, you can click it to go to the Create a Colour page and give it a name.
