This library is called colours. It is a colour-related toolset. It aims to unify colour-related methods and constants into one project, usable for other ruby projects. I needed such a module because I often found myself in need of different, colour-related methods, so I thought that I should bundle them all together into one new project. This gem also supercedes my earlier gems, such as AdvancedColours or CoulourStrings - these two projects have now been merged into UnifiedColours (and removed from rubygems.org, of course). As of version 0.0.3, you can autoinclude this module into your project: require 'colours/autoinclude' Also the eparse() method was added as of version 0.0.4, which is a convenience method to use on 'Foo: bar' input. If you want to test this module, look at the file in test/ directory, which includes a method that will allow you to test this module like so: Colours.test If you have specific suggestions to make this gem more useful for others, please drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
