pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

Update
I ended up adding some features to this and have now packaged it and given it a project page. The screenshots should give you and idea of what it can do now. The info page has more details: http://xyne.archlinux.ca/projects/pychrom

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

I was looking for something like that - thank You for sharing Xyne. Using this one and http://www.colr.org really speeds up my work with choosing the right colors.

I own You one:)

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

Is there a way to turn off the tray for those of us that don't have one (ie, e17 users).

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

smartboyathome: all this does is open/close the gnome color chooser, which you can get standalone by installing gcolor2.

I know that, it just doesn't work for me. Besides, I prefer to use Iiirk. wink

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

This is a great tool just what i need. Only thing that would make it perfect would be rgb + cmyk values. Great tool thanks.

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

@passbe
I have hsv and rgb fields here above the hex field so I'm not sure what you mean by "rgb" values.
I don't know of any cmyk color selection widgets but if you find one, let me know. Pycrhom is just a standard gtk color selection dialogue attached to a tray icon and the code is very simple and suits my needs perfectly. It would not be that difficult to implement something more robust (e.g. emulate the gimp color selection dialogue) but that's way beyond the scope of this.

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

@fogobogo
If you mean a short description inside the script, then I've done that. I'll probably package this soon too.

@sand_man
I tend to get sidetracked when coding and end up trying different things just to see if they would work. smile

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

*bump*

I started by porting some Perl functions to Python and ended up adding a quite a few things:

* CMYK values
* color names
* terminal colors
* palette functions

I also dissected the color selection widget and reorganized it. smile


You can now install it from my repo or from the AUR as well.

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

One feature I would love to see is a magnification window. I find it really helps select *that* pixel.

Otherwise, excellent job. Very nice program

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

A magnification window would be useful but it's somewhat beyond the current scope. I'll look into it and decide whether to implement it once I have a better idea how.

If you haven't discovered it yet, you can turn on "auto-add" and then drag the eye-dropper across your target. You should then be able to select the correct color from the palette.


*after browsing code for a couple of minutes*

I think I know how to do it and it's simpler than I expected. I've bookmarked a few pages so that I'll remember to look into it tomorrow.

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

bumpity bump

I've added a zoom window.

Set the zoom level to 1 then zoom in on the zoom window itself for fun side-effects.

The basic concept was. Actually figuring out how to set up the events and capture them outside of the window involved several facepalms (e.g. mixing up gtk.Window with gtk.gdk.Window, gtk.* with gtk.*_MASK).

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

Many thanks for this tool - it's a stable member of my tray apps in tint2 smile

[NAGGING_THE_AUTHOR_MODE_ON] Just a couple of thoughts: I start pychrom in autostart.sh (openbox) and it opens with the full window - I'd expect it starts in the tray. In the same way, when I click the X in a window (the close button, I mean) if the  program has systray support I'd expect it to "close in the tray" and not to exit. [NAGGING_THE_AUTHOR_MODE_OFF]

Re: pychrom - a simple color selection and conversion tool for the tray

I've add a "--tray" option to minimize to the tray at startup. Note that it doesn't check whether the tray actually exists first (due to race conditions with embedding the icon).

Closing the window will now minimize to the tray if the tray is detected. I hadn't added this before because I didn't want to make it exclusively a tray app (I hadn't looked into tray detection... have to add that to unibrow and pystopwatch too).
