agave [options]


Agave is a program for generating colorschemes from a starting color. It currently supports five different colorscheme types:

* Complements: The starting color and the color directly across the color wheel * Split Complements: the starting color and the two colors that are slightly

   offset from the color directly across the color wheel

* Triads: the starting color and the two colors 1/3 of the way around the wheel

   in each direction.

* Tetrads: The starting color and its complement plus another color slightly

   offset from the starting color and _its_ complement

* Analogous: The starting color and two colors slightly offset in hue * Monochromatic: The starting color and two other colors of the same hue, one

   lighter, and one darker

Using Agave

* Choose a starting color by clicking on the color button or selecting a color

   from the palette, and then select a scheme type from the combo box.  The
   generated scheme will be displayed in the main window.

* The left-most Color in the main window is the currently-selected color. This

   color can be added to your favorites list with the '+' button in the bottom
   right, or with the keyboard shortcut 'Ctrl+D'.

* To make one of the other colors in the scheme the currently-selected color, you

   can double-click the colorswatch.

* To copy a hexstring representation of the color (e.g. #FFFFFF) to the

   clipboard, right-click the colorswatch and select the 'copy' menu
