This is not a product, it's a landing page.

@vladzima It looks like I got hunted a bit early when the product was still in beta, but it's live now

@jak_9994 Jack this is a fantastic tool. One question: why didn't you use palettes from Colorlovers and performed manual extraction from Dribbble?

@vladzima you mean instead of automatic extraction? I used about 10k examples for training the main palette, and each of the themed generators use about 2~5k. With those numbers it's a lot easier to extract the palettes automatically then remove any that look obviously wrong than to do it all manually

@jak_9994 No I mean if I got it right from your blog - you used manual samples from dribbble along with automated adobe color. All I'm trying to say is there's an extensive source of palettes on Colorlovers you could use for automated dataset filling as well.

@vladzima oh I see. I knew about color lovers but wasn't sure what license they use for the palettes. I'll definitely check it, thanks!

From the looks of the limited landing page, it's exactly the same thing MailChimp already offers at

@scottwyden Adobe Color CC (formerly Kuler) has a pretty good one as well (upload files with the camera icon)

Very cool idea! Will you be offering an API or Open Source code?
