/**
* Color Scheme Class: Create color schemes for your theme,
* and give user the ability to change colors using live preview via custozimer.
*
* @author Henry Chow
* @link https://deluxeblogtips.com/add-color-schemes-wordpress-theme/
*
* Note: This is just a working sample of the color scheme provided by the author all in one place , To understand how this works, Please follow
* the original tutorial found at the link above.
*
* Setup:
* 1. add your css in the get_css function.
* 2. add your color schemes get_color_schemes() function
* 3. Rename 'YourTheme_Color_Scheme' class to your prefered name.
* 4. in your functions.php - add the following code to include the new file.
*
* require get_template_directory() . '/color-scheme.php';
* new YourTheme_Color_Scheme;
* 5. Rename 'yourtheme-style-name' for wp_add_inline_style to your theme's style sheet handle.
*
* Note: This is not necessary, you could just call the class in your functions.php file to get the color schemes working.
* 6. Rename all instances of 'yourtheme' from color-scheme.php, color-scheme.js, and color-sheme-preview.js
* 7. Rename all instances of 'YourThemeColorScheme' from color-scheme.php and color-scheme.js
