The selection of colors and fonts of type is an important part of the design process for graphical user interfaces (GUIs). huey is a program you can use to see how colors and fonts look on your screen.
huey allows you to work with two colors at once:
Type is shown in the text color. The initial text color is black. You might also think of this as the foreground color.
The area behind the type is the background color. The initial background color is bright red.
For those interested in the implementation of this program, see huey: Internal maintenance specification. As an example of Python and Tkinter programming, the entire Python source for the program is presented there using a lightweight literate programming (LLP) style.
Here are online links to all the files required by this program (other than Python and Tkinter installs).
