webcolors 24.6.0

webcolors is a module for working with and converting between the various HTML/CSS color formats.

Support is included for normalizing and converting between the following formats (RGB colorspace only; conversion to/from HSL can be handled by the colorsys module in the Python standard library):

  • Specification-defined color names

  • Six-digit hexadecimal

  • Three-digit hexadecimal

  • Integer rgb() triplet

  • Percentage rgb() triplet

For example:

>>> import webcolors
>>> webcolors.hex_to_name("#daa520")
'goldenrod'

Implementations are also provided for the HTML5 color parsing and serialization algorithms. For example, parsing the infamous “chucknorris” string into an rgb() triplet:

>>> import webcolors
>>> webcolors.html5_parse_legacy_color("chucknorris")
HTML5SimpleColor(red=192, blue=0, green=0)
