:atom_symbol: React primitive UI components built with styled-system.Project mention: What is Rebass and How to provide theming to Rebass Components? ⚛️ | dev.to | 2022-04-27
Rebass is a simple React UI component library that allows you to create primitive UI components using the Styled System library. With Rebass, you can get started with your design system without having to write a lot of boilerplate code. Emotion, Styled Components, and Styled System are used to create Rebass, a themeable primitive UI component library for React. Because it is designed with Styled System, any Styled System theme object should work with Rebass. Rebass components include a standardized style props API to create larger component libraries.
A tiny script for generating attractive colors
Importantly, for accessibility I automatically choose an accessible text color all across the site using tinycolor. This includes a fallback to using pure black and pure white in case that user decides that their favorite light shade is white and their favorite dark shade is white.
Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

Notice the spec authors are constantly updating this: https://github.com/LeaVerou/color.js which likely includes functions that could be used for various conversions. 🤔 CSS Color has a lot going on at the minute with LCH and P3 starting to ship in browsers. Imagine it will be significant work have something fully features and fully future proof.
:rainbow: Beautiful color gradients in terminal output
This looks fantastic for working with colors, and from a great developer too. A very very similar js library is Culori [0, 1], which I discovered on the original Oklab introduction post .
If you're doing generative artwork or any procedural work with a non-fixed palette, a good color library and working in linear or Oklab based colorspace is a must. Using sRGB or HSV/B when interpolating for gradients or generating palettes or complementary colors is extremely painful; a 50% brightness (HSV) yellow is visually much brighter than a 50% brightness purple, with similar issues cropping up for saturation. Balancing the lighting and contrast of programmatically generated colors is so much simpler when you have a perceptually uniform colorspace like OkLCh, or linear RGB if you're working with predefined hex values.

The APCA version licensed to the W3/AGWG per the collaborative agreementProject mention: Please Stop Using Grey Text | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-05-18

In this repositiory, all files present are under a time-barred beta license, and intended for use with web-based content only, and not for any other use without written permission.
The non-pre-release stuff offered to W3C is better but still seems to be intended to end up non-FOSS:

(The question being, of course, how much of this is copyrightable at all.)

From a developer perspective, working with color palettes with defined "magic numbers" is really great. I have written a blog post  around this topic and wrote a tool  to calculate/ensure accessible magic numbers for color palettes.
