The Material Design Guidelines are a living documentation of visual, interactive, and motion design guidance across platforms and devices.
Beyond guidance, Material Design is a also system that supports and strengthens communication and productivity with new tools and inspiration. With today’s update, Material is introducing a new way to learn about color. The new color tool helps you create, share, and apply color palettes to a sample UI and through components in codepen. The tool also supports accessibility by evaluating the legibility of text for any color combination. Specific features include:
Create color schemes that include darker and lighter variations of your primary and secondary colors.
Check if text is accessible on different-colored backgrounds, as measured using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines legibility standards.
