Emmy | Pixi on July 23, 2019

I am so excited to announce that I finally built ~A Thing~ that I am proud of, that came from my own brain, that didn't involve following any tutor...

Wow, that's cool. Love the idea. Congrats! πŸ₯³πŸΎ You should be really proud of it.
Used to be a kinda-designer, so always love Pantone chips.

Thank you! I always find Pantone color samples so aesthetically pleasing. My sister is an enamel pin designer and uses them as color reference for her manufacturer, so I think it may have been a result of a lot of recent exposure.

Even though I actually used to use it, I haven't thought the possibility of a project such as this.
Thank you for showing me such creativity.✨

I was actually thinking the same thing! I am SO bad with color! But I think it could be cool to have options for the closest colors (within a few digits of the color code provided) and also the most opposite.

Congrats on shipping! And then talking about it. Both easier said than done.

Thanks, Ben! I wish I had saved a version of what it looked like a few days ago when I first started working on it. The final version is so much prettier and better functioning lol

Congrats! Small tip, use Math.floor instead of Math.round in your random code, otherwise it's biased to give you the last element of the array less often.
