Anyone seen a colour palette sketch plugin?

over 8 years ago from , Developer

Has anybody found a colour palette plugin for sketch? I'm thinking one should be able to select different themes a new palette loads up.

I've had a look but no luck so far - can any one help me out? If not it might be worth building myself.

    I just finished a Sketch plugin to save and load color palettes into the color picker. You can grab it on Github: https://github.com/andrewfiorillo/sketch-palettes

    Let me know what you think!

    I got around this for my team: I used the OSX color picker, saved a palette, then dumped the .CLS file in Username/Library/Colors and then in Sketch go to Window>Show Colors, with the color window open choose Color Palettes, on the palettes line on the far right is a gear icon with a dropdown, choose new in the dropdown and navigate to the folder with the .CLS file.

    Not as nice as having global palettes, but if you have to share a palette with a team this will work.

    it would be cool to be able to save palettes based on project, but at the same time i could just as easily create an artboard and save my colors to it so.. not sure?

    I would use this and weep openly at the magnificence while using it.

    Hey Jack,

    Good news is I've already started a sketch plugin which will fetch palettes from adobe kuler. The bad news is adobe doesn't release an API for it so I'm fetching and parsing html file and prepare requests according to this.

    I will release it in a couple of days if I have some time. I'll let you know after I finish it. It will be on this github page (I didn't push the current code yet)

    I got another problem. Can we rename the colour? For example, we have our own colour palette and we name the colour in sequence like C001,C002, etc. Then we use the plugin called ICON-STAMPER to export the size picture, however it doesn't show the colour's name but in RGB.

    Here is set of OS X tools to convert ASE file from Adobe Color CC to OSX's system palette (.CLR): [[https://github.com/ramonpoca/ColorTools]]

    Use Releases tab to grab pre-built binaries.

    Getting Gatekeeper's "can not open app" error? Use right-click menu on OSX with Gatekeeper on to select Open command and click on Open button in confirmation window.

    You really can't right a plugin for this right now. Sketch needs to just allow you to use the OS X standard color picker. Then we could use Marc Edwards color picker

      I believe you are correct. After investigating the documentation there doesn't seem to be any way to fill the swatches component with data.

      I'll try the forums or mailing list - there must be a way to get at it, even if it's only available down the track.

    Cool idea. Kuler, being an Adobe product, is tightly integrated into PS. Would be nice to have something similar for Sketch. It could even have a contextual mode where it spits out schemes that include your current fill color

    It would be really great as a UI pane in the program not just a pop - up window.

    Looking for one too. Currently syncing my palette between office and home is rather cumbersome.

    As a developer I think it might be cool to have something like this setup with presets or plugged into something like kuler so I could get a range of starting points.

    If this doesn't already exist would you use this? I'd like to get a gauge on how useful it would be for the community.
