A nifty utility that is well designed and just works. I’ve used similar tools on macOS before, and Pika is the best combo of practical and reliable I’ve found. It doesn’t seem to struggle with color spaces like some other tools do (i.e., the picked color is usually the color defined in code). My wishes for the future: - show some history of picked colors or color pairs (and their contrast); - APCA contrast calculations would be great, in addition to WCAG2 ones.
In today’s online world it is not optional to ensure that all you do is accessible to all. One big part of accessibility is color choice. I am not color blind but I can’t tell you how often I have been on sites where I can’t read the text due to poor choices of color. Pika solves for that and is extremely easy to use. Pika allows you to see how your color choices contrast and how appropriate (or not) they are to use to be compliant. When I am working on anything online, I always have Pika open. Can’t overstate the importance of this or how useful Pika is.
