Working on a palette editor, why not?
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.

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
- 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.
Check out mine. It is really simple webpage which changes color on click of button.

Here’s what I tried: https://editor.p5js.org/drunktimelord/sketches/JOMBAOMNM
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.

I made a simple little color tool to change and apply colors to a sample UI.

Is it ok to use multiple bots together and make something?
@shajanjp I think that’s not only okay but pretty awesome! Hack away!!!
Yep, it is even encouraged in the home page
I made a flask app for pointillism, using Hexbot!
Check out the app here: bit.ly/hexbotflask

I made a Doughnut generator, because why not.
I created two chrome extentions using hexbot.
One is a colorful pointer.
The other is a colorful mosaic.I want to use it when taking screenshots.
