A color picker made in rust for the CLI!

When you pick a color it will both display the rgb hex of the color and put it into your clipboard as well as having the display background become the color and the foreground become it's inverse.

You can install it by running cargo install crabdropper-cli

I personally use it as a shortcut (Win+Shift+C) so I can use it as quickly as possible.

Platform support:

  • Windows
  • MacOS (untested)
  • Linux (X11)
