I wanted to demonstrate some of the programming power that Sass and Compass provides. For example, the circular nature of the color wheel is achieved using Sass iterators and Math helpers from Compass. An initial non-interactive demo generated the hue, saturation and lightness modifications based on one color using Sass's color functions. Later, to bring interactive selection of new colors from the wheel, I brought in the color-js framework.
Now, this is a first step. I've open-sourced this demo, so feel free to fork it, use it, abuse it, mutate it -- go nuts with it. I welcome any suggestions/pull requests/issues in the tracker. PLEASE let me know what you think. @nickcooley or firstname.lastname@example.org
This demo takes advantage of the following tools/demos/frameworks:

This is not the first time anyone's built a color-picking web application. Here are a few which served as inspirations
