# xkcd color list for LaTeX users…

After reading the (very) fun post about colors name at xkcd, I decided to create a small package to add the color list to my LaTeX documents…

After circumventing a small bug in xcolor, and ten lines of python, I have managed to create a small package that I am sharing here.

To use it, simply load with \usepackage{xkcdcols} and you’ll have all the color from the xkcd page with names like xkcdTeal (note the capitalization)  and xkcdDarkPastelGreen, like in this snippet:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{xkcdcols} %
\begin{document}
\textcolor{xkcdDust}{OneColor}
\textcolor{xkcdDarkPastelGreen}{AnotherColor}
\end{document}

And now you can have

\textcolor{xkcdBabyPoop}{This is not yummy at all}

or

\textcolor{xkcdGreenyGrey}{What a nice color name\ldots}

all over the place!
