This is a rewrite of the old kolourpicker plasmoid, albeit a bit prettier.

Clicking the "drop" (it's color-picker, I would expect a pipette icon) enters picker mode, where you can click anywhere on the screen and have the color code (in a format you can configure) copied to your clipboard.
Clicking the color blob opens the history, showing the recentmost 9 colors (so it's a nice grid) which allow copying their respective color codes in various formats.
Activating the plasmoid (pressing the configured shortcut) will by default enter color picking mode, alternatively it brings up the popup like any other plasmoid.

  • I have the impression that the color picker is off by one pixel horizontally (QRect weirdness? or our Breeze crosshair cursor?)
  • I didn't test with multiple screens
