Colors for digital and software products using the chancethedev Design System. A fork of @carbon/colors.

Getting started



You can use the @chancethedev/colors module in your JavaScript, in addition to your Sass.


In Sass, you can import the files individual by doing:

@import '@chancethedev/colors/scss/colors';

This file automatically includes the chancethedev--colors mixin which initializes all the color variables for the design system.

These color variables follow the naming convention: $chancethedev--<swatch>-<grade>. For example:


You can also use the shorthand form of these colors by dropping the chancethedev-- namespace:


Note: the shorthand variables require that you do not have any other conflicting variables in your setup. Namespaced variables are always preferred for this reason, unless you are confident that no collisions will occur.

If you would like you choose when these variables are defined, then you can call the chancethedev--colors mixin directly by importing the following file:

@import '@chancethedev/colors/scss/mixins';

// ...
@include chancethedev--colors();

Alongside the color variables detailed above, we also provide a map of colors so that you can programmatically use these values. This map is called $chancethedev--colors and each key is the name of a swatch. The value of these swatches is also a map, but each key is now the grade. In code, this looks like the following:

$chancethedev--colors: (
  'blue': (
    10: #edf4ff,
    // ...

You can include this variable by including @chancethedev/colors/scss/colors or calling the chancethedev--colors() mixin directly.


For JavaScript, you can import and use this module by doing the following in your code:

// ESM
import { black, blue, warmGray } from '@chancethedev/colors';

// CommonJS
const { black, blue, warmGray } = require('@chancethedev/colors');

Each color swatch is exported as a variable, and each color name is also exported as an object that can be called by specifying grade, for example:

blue[50]; // Using the `blue` object.
warmGray100; // Using the `warmGray100` variable.
