Can I ask how you chose the colour keywords that you use in your CheerLights API [1]? They are all official X11 colour names [2] except one, "warmwhite", that appears to be made up.

Furthermore, "warmwhite" has the colour value "#FDF5E6" which is actually the colour value of "oldlace" [3].

Would it be possible to change the colour keywords in the API to use standard colour names and values? This would increase clarity and ensure better compatibility with other systems.

Many thanks.

The legacy of "warmwhite" came from the Arduino library that originally supported the G35 lights. But, you are right, it is not a standard color name. I can set an additional trigger for oldlace and this will make all of the colors compliant. How does that sound?

I added "oldlace" as a trigger and it works thru the CheerLights system. Thanks for the recommendation.
