Made this code in python which visualizes the colors by their tone sound. Try to run this file: https://github.com/TomasRoj/hexbot/blob/master/handling.py. Note that its only windows tested. other os may not work. 

To run the file just run python handling.py. have a nice coding!

Hey Everyone,

I made a simple js script to fill up the background colour of a div using hexbot and then labelling the colour, kind of like a ui color generator.

link:- https://github.com/co16353sidak/hexbot

would love changes and suggestions on this, and also would love it if someone used it to as a base and create something more evolved than this.

Hello everyone,

i have made an app that takes random colors from Hexbot and a random picture from Unsplash, when you click the picture it applies a Pointillism effect with the random colors.

This is the app: https://hexbot-pointillism.herokuapp.com

Repository: https://github.com/niconisoria/hexbot

If it doesn’t works is because Unsplash allows me to request only 50 images per hour in the demo version.

I hope you like it!

Note: I use PHP just to take the enviroment variable needed for Unsplash from Heroku.

I don’t mean to offend you, but I don’t think putting points over a picture is pointillism. I think it is recreating the whole image with small circles.

First, I convert hex code to decimal. Then I use something like ‘ASCII art’ painting to show it. this is demo: https://zyp461476492.github.io/hexbot/ this is my repo: https://github.com/zyp461476492/hexbot

Awesome challenge and some very cool projects I’ve seen so far!

I gave the Hexbot a try and created a “game” where two teams of 5 colors “fight” against each other using their RGB values.

Live demo: https://hexbotbattle.netlify.com

I hope you like it!

I worked on pointillism and wrote a python script using opencv and hexbot

here are some examples:

I’ve been meaning to learn Go, so I wrote a program that does the following:

  • Spawns X number of goroutines
  • Each goroutines will call the HexBot api, deserialize the result, and pass it back to the controlling thread on a channel.
  • API requests are rate-limited through another channel. Only 20 requests per second allowed. Otherwise HexBot gets mad and gives you a 403 :slight_smile:
  • Main thread spawns an OpenGL window and plots the returned hex codes randomly on the screen, creating a colorful TV static look.

Made this Xbox Live avatar re-generator: https://github.com/dend/hexbot/tree/master/src

It takes the most frequent colors from the image, and replaces them with random colors from the Noop API.

Hey Guys, what’s up?

I am new to programming and need some help with the NoopsChallenge?

How do I start using an API like Hexbot?

I would like to make some projects of my own using the Hexbot API and Python, but I don’t know how to start.

Could someone help me? All suggestions are welcome.

I wrote a little gist that demonstrates the basic usage of the hexbot api. I added some comments so that you should be able to understand whats happening. You may have to install the requests module.

Just a simple little application with random number of squares changing colors every 1 second to create a disco floor!

I’m not sure if this qualifies. But I found a good use for the code hexbot uses to generate random hexes. Generates 1000 random css linear gradients.

Is it ok to use multiple bots together and make something?
