RGB Project in Codea using SVG Color Map

On Monday this week Simon spent hours converting hexadecimals into RGBA values for the 140 colors supported by all modern browsers and creating a color file in Codea. He used the w3schools color map available at https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_groups.asp and an html color codes converter http://html-color-codes.info/

We also took a very close look at the relation between red, green and blue values and found out that red was added every time to make colors lighter, even in shades where you would not expect any red.

Simon later made a nice design pattern in Codea using the color file:
