       Agave - colorscheme designer for the gnome desktop


       agave [options]


       Agave  is  a program for generating colorschemes from a starting color.
       It currently supports five different colorscheme types:

        * Complements: The starting color and the color  directly  across  the
       color wheel
        *  Split  Complements:  the starting color and the two colors that are
          offset from the color directly across the color wheel
        * Triads: the starting color and the two colors 1/3 of the way  around
       the wheel
          in each direction.
        *  Tetrads:  The  starting color and its complement plus another color
          offset from the starting color and _its_ complement
        * Analogous: The starting color and two colors slightly offset in hue
        * Monochromatic: The starting color and two other colors of  the  same
       hue, one
          lighter, and one darker

       Using Agave

        * Choose a starting color by clicking on the color button or selecting
       a color
          from the palette, and then select a scheme type from the combo  box.
          generated scheme will be displayed in the main window.
        *  The  left-most  Color  in the main window is the currently-selected
       color.  This
          color can be added to your favorites list with the ’+’ button in the
          right, or with the keyboard shortcut ’Ctrl+D’.
        * To make one of the other colors in the scheme the currently-selected
       color, you
          can double-click the colorswatch.
        * To copy a hexstring representation of the color  (e.g.  #FFFFFF)  to
          clipboard, right-click the colorswatch and select the ’copy’ menu
