I looked around the Wiki and the forum, but I couldn't find any info on this, so I decided to create a color chart for skinners (many might already know and use this).

These colors are already defined in Kodi, and can be used just like the custom defined ones.
Hope this can be useful.

I also included a link to a folder containing individual color tiles for download.

I already had @h.udo make a PR with commit fixing those (and I took the liberty of adding KODI logo official color)

Wink

edit: and I already have a fixed chart for/if the commit gets pulled

Wait a minute, are you saying we could have just used all these colours before now without having to make our own colors.xml?

Word of warning, if no skin uses these now I'll approve a merge of the mentioned missspelled and color difference. So we are aligned to CSS (only the missspell is the one you'd ideally need to care about)
Just might be worth to consider before jumping in and changing everything to them

No worries, I wont be using them anytime soon but this is very handy for the future.
