What I really hate about my job

LogEngine Image

What I really hate about my job is that from time to time you have to deal with crap others ‘invented’ in a way that you want to reskill; becoming a ranger or a carpenter always seems very tempting in those moments.

Today is one of those times. It is 2014 and exporting color palettes as Adobe Swatch Exchange files still forces you to write Big-endian binary data from scratch.

Seriously, Adobe?

Welcome to Swift Blog

A blog? From Apple? About Swift? I guess we won’t see any cat content…

Of course, Adobe!

Of course, Adobe, differs the script for sending/setting colors between Photoshop and Illustrator. It’s the same task, but hey – why actually bother and tell anyone. They will figure it out eventually after wasting hours with banging their heads against the display…

Click To Pick

Yes, there are color pickers out there for creating color schemes. Yes there are color pickers out there for iOS and Mac developers. Yes, there are color pickers out there for web developers. And yes, there are color pickers out there for storing individual color palettes.

But not a single one is perfect. Not a single one combines all those things in a usable and sophisticated way. Not a single one allows dragging images to analyze theme and to directly save the color scheme. And not a single one is iCloud (or Dropbox) enabled so that you can access your up-to-date-colors from any Mac.

So you end up with at least three to five different more or less useful color pickers in your application folders.

Last night I had enough and decided to put an end to that misery. As you can see it is still in its infancy but when I’m finished it will, at least for me, replace multiple apps…
