I recently made a demo where I needed to list all the CSS named colours as options in a
select input. I didn’t want to write them all out by hand, but the trouble was I couldn’t find just a list of all 148 colours anywhere as plain text.
What I ended up doing was copying the HTML from this handy CSS Tricks article (which also includes the corresponding hex codes, and is very useful), then replacing the surrounding table markup with the markup I actually needed. I don’t really want to have to do that again – so I’ve created this text file on Github in case I (or you) ever need a plain text list of all the CSS colours in the future.
They’re also listed below 🙂
