Central Colour Palette

Description

This plugin allows you to manage a site-wide central colour palette for an uniform look’n’feel. The palette of the new block editor and the Theme Customiser are supported, as well as the classic editor. You can define this central colour palette through the settings menu. All plugins that make use of WordPress’ colour picker can benefit from this plugin as well.

This plugin supports a multi-site setup of WordPress.

Also this plugin replaces the colour picker for choosing a text or background colour found inside the classic editor with a bigger and customisable colour grid.

For an easy migration between WordPress installations you can export and import your palette settings and colours.

✅ Block editor ✅ Customizer ✅ GeneratePress theme ✅ JSON import/export for settings and/or palette ✅ Customizable color names ✅ No in-your-face notices or top-level menu item (because it isn't necessary) ✅ No WP_DEBUG / WP_DEBUG_LOG notices 👏👏👏👏👏

This is one of the best plugins for design! Wish I had discovered it 5 websites ago. It instantly changed all color palettes and save me tons of time. Worked with Gutenburg and my theme. Haven't tried it with Classic Editor yet. LOVE LOVE LOVE it so far. Hopefully it will continue to serve well. If so, I am adding it to my master "must have" plugins list. THANK YOU to the developer!

The best Color Palette customizer for Gutenberg (and Classic Editor). Great UI design, awesome features. I hope the developer add also the ability to show in the backend editor also custom color applied by custom CSS Classe to HTML Tags (i.e. I use 3 different classes to customize <mark> tag, but I can see them only in frontend and it will be useful if they will be visible in Gutenberg paragraphs. Thank you so much for coding and sharing this wonderful plugin!
