    Here’s Skala Color 2:

    Version 2 adds random colour generation, Swift support, improved format parsing, and a new user interface.

    And yep, Skala Color is a good indication of what Skala’s interface will be like.

    Feel free to ask me any questions about it. :)

      One question: How do I use it?

      It says "relaunch any apps you want to use with Color Picker", but there are no instructions on how to actually invoke it (some kinda keyboard combo, I imagine?)

      Thanks!

        One question: How do I use it?

        That’s a fair question. Skala Color is an OS X Color Picker, so it’s available as a tab in the standard color panels found in many apps.

        For example, to use Skala Color in TextEdit, open up TextEdit, then press ⇧⌘C or choose Format → Font → Show Colors.

        Here’s some other apps that use standard OS X color pickers: Acorn, Pixelmator, Quartz Composer, Pages, Keynote, Numbers, Xcode, Sketch, Hype, Cheetah 3D and many other apps that need colour input.

        We have more info on how to use Skala Color here: http://bjango.com/help/skalacolor/gettingstarted/

    Skala Color is one of those small but invaluable tools that takes an important place in your workflow as soon as you use it for the first time.

    Love the update, the clipboard feature is awesome and works flawless.

    Solid work Bjango peeps

    I'm not sure how technically feasible this is, but I would pay for a standalone Skala Color 2 app.

    Also, great work! The Bjango tools always end up being indispensable.

      We could definitely make a stand alone app at some point.

      Also, great work! The Bjango tools always end up being indispensable.

      Thank you! :)

    Thanks Marc, awesome update. Kudos to your team for this, looking very slick.

    Mine looks a little different, I don't see the alpha slider and the 3rd option next to the default set to black or white option.

      The host application sets if alpha is needed for the colour. If it is, it’ll be in the picker. If not, it won’t. This is why TextEdit doesn’t show the opacity slider, but Acorn does.

      and the 3rd option next to the default set to black or white option.

      The third colour swatch is whatever you have on the clipboard, if it’s a recognised format. If you copy #69F79E or rgba(105, 247, 158, 1) to the clipboard as text, a light green button will appear.

      We built the colour recognition to make moving colours between apps quicker. With Skala Color, you can copy and paste with a single click each.
