Colors are nice. It’s also nice to have more than just these:

+ blackColor
+ darkGrayColor
+ lightGrayColor
+ whiteColor
+ grayColor
+ redColor
+ greenColor
+ blueColor
+ cyanColor
+ yellowColor
+ magentaColor
+ orangeColor
+ purpleColor
+ brownColor
+ clearColor

Try 1000+ more. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

This is based on a blog post by Jeff LaMarche:

I used his convenient macro to copy the entire compact list of colors from Wikipedia (the macro was convenient because I did it all with regex [Yes, I parsed HTML with regex and lived]).

Use and abuse at will. This repo should stay up to date with the latest colors as I go look at the swatches and realize something is missing. I will also occassionally add colors (like fedexPurple).


From CocoaPods

pod 'UIColor-MoreColors', '~> 1.0'


Added the .h and .m files to your project and import where needed.


The refresh script, which updates the category with new colors from Wikipedia, is written in Python 3 and depends on the unidecode package (and so is GPLv2-licensed).
