  1. Hey There!

    I know it’s not exactly like the 4 tools you’ve mentioned, but I’ve created an additional (and somewhat different) material design color generation tool and I was hoping you might consider adding it (or approving this comment):

    This tool allows you to quickly export a theme to AngularJS Material Design, which is more of a web focus than mobile app. However, this tool provides far more control in picking the palette colors than the others and has direct integration with ColourLovers, for instant theme choices. I plan to allow for export to additional frontend frameworks soon, such as Materialize, CSS, and Polymer. I also plan to allow for previews in all of the previously mentioned frameworks from within the tool.

    Any feedback is welcome!

    Thank you!
