Get a "web safe" color based on string contents in PHP

Get color for string in PHP

I've needed to do this a couple of times, so I guess it's time to save it as a Gist for next time.

What I needed was a way to calculate a color based on string contents, where the same string would always generate the same color. I also wanted the colors generated to be part of the web safe palette. Not that there's any reason to stay in that palette for browsers now, but I wanted to keep the possible palette relatively small and have colors that generally look okay together. The math behind the web safe palette made it pretty easy.

As it works out, all of the web safe colors are multiples of 51. We'll need that bit of trivia in a second...

Move Canvas Files

Canvas is good for a lot of things, but turning in source code in a computer science class is not one of them.

Our district requires us to use Canvas, and for the most part that's a good thing. But when students need to turn in Java files there's a pretty significant issue. When you download submitted files they've all been renamed and stored in the root of the zip file.

Since they're Java files, they need to be named the same thing as the class which breaks by renaming the files
