CSS: Preview-File, colors, switch color-format

Postby Atgarist » Thu May 04, 2017 10:19 am

Hi, it' s me once more :-)

have some suggestions for CSS-editing:

1. Let us see colors as colored background, like this screenshot:


Dark-colors have white color-text, so light-color have black text-color :-)

2. Let us fast (in mouse context menu, in menu on top ....) switch between color-formats, from HEX to RGBA, RGBA to HEX .......... (in screenshot on bottom)

3. A "big" one: CSS-Preview-file
Give us a editable HTML-preview-file, where we can see all CSS-settings only. A set of preview-files should be loaded


All screenshots: Top Style CSS Editor, which is not longer supported

Thanks + bye,

1) Personally I prefer the current color feature where you hover over a color and a small "tooltip" displays the color. (But I rarely edit CSS files. I prefer Sass :) )

2) Changing color formats is not lossless when you convert from RGB to HSV format. So it will not be possible to switch between formats without the colors changing.
Have you tried my CSS Color Converter plugin? With that you can change the formats on selected CSS.

3) +1. It would be really great if it was possible to preview CSS files. But for preview files, I guess you will have to make your own. As classnames/ids etc. changes from project to project. But a simple one with H1-H6, input fields etc. could be useful as reference.

You can preview CSS files. Use Preview/Horizontal Split/Vertical Split tabs at the bottom.
