Linux Tool: Gpick

    Gpick is a color grabbing utility available in the default Ubuntu 14.04 Software Center. There's not much to this program, but it fills a need on the platform. Sometime while I'm working on a project, I just want a hex value for a color I like. In the past I've used the utility build into OS X or a website like flatuicolorpicker.com. This utility lets you hover over a color with the mouse, and add a color to the pallet by pressing the space bar. In fact, I recently updated the color scheme of this website using this tool to capture hex values of Sublime Test's default color scheme. I've found this utility to be incredibly handy recently, here's hoping this post bring it to someone's attention.
