Color Scheme every Theme

Description

This plugin lets you change the entire color scheme of the current theme via the
theme customizer.

4 steps to your customized color scheme

  1. The plugin extracts all the color settings from the css of your current
    theme. You trigger this process from the plugin settings page. All css files in
    your theme folder will be scanned.
  2. After scanning the css, a template file gets created which will overwrite all
    the color settings of the current theme with your custom colors.
  3. You create a custom color scheme by following the instructions on the plugin
    settings page.
  4. You go to the theme customizer and choose your custom color scheme in the
    ‘Color schemes’ section.
