Theme Customizer to generate Hex instead of rgba
Frontend (App Interfaces)
Development Environment Beta 54

Idea: change the CSS generated code to produce the colour codes in HEX instead of the rgba. 

Currently the OutSystems Silk UI theme customizer produces CSS with rgba instead of HEX, the major difference is that once inside the CSS in Service Studio there is no modal with the color to easily validate the colour with rgba in the CSS code.

Why would you change it to hex then?

I rather have SS validate rgba properly...

Hi Andre,

In fact you are right, we have a little inconsistency issue here as we are generating CSS in RGBD and have the Style Editor that not handle this (because its targeted for HEX format).

A major reason to keep exporting in RGBD is because it allows transparency

Will move the category of this issue to Service Studio 

Thank you for your suggestion

Hi André, thank you for your feedback. Today we released a new Theme Editor in Service Studio Beta! Have you tried it? It has many improvements compared to the one you are using, including producing hex instead of rgba. I’ll mark this idea as Implemented as we analyzed all the feedback from the previous version of Theme Customizer and we’ve integrated it in Service Studio to provide a better development experience.

So now, with the new Theme Editor, you can create unique applications, styled according to your own preferences or your brand’s style, without any CSS, directly inside Service Studio.
We hope you like it! 

As always, keep sending ideas.
