<h1>Rebane's Discord <span style="color:#5865F2">Colored</span> Text Generator</h1>
<div class="container">
<h3>About</h3>
<p>This is a simple app that creates colored Discord messages using the ANSI color codes available on the latest Discord desktop versions.</p>
<p>To use this, write your text, select parts of it and assign colors to them, then copy it using the button below, and send in a Discord message.</p>
<h3>Source Code</h3>
<p>This app runs entirely in your browser and the source code is freely available on <a href="https://gist.github.com/rebane2001/07f2d8e80df053c70a1576d27eabe97c">GitHub</a>. Shout out to kkrypt0nn for <a href="https://gist.github.com/kkrypt0nn/a02506f3712ff2d1c8ca7c9e0aed7c06">this guide</a>.</p>

I do not want to accuse anyone of stealing, but I have found a repo with the same webpage. Just wanted to let you know: github.com/crossface001/discord-colored-text-generator

I was pushed 1 day after this gist was created.

https://github.com/crossface001/discord-colored-text-generator/commit/d4435839b9c89e41a9c2d1d0379485355420aa5d

I know it is very, very likely, but I don't think I am in the position of actually accusing someone (the two people might know each other and worked on the project together). But it is very suspicious indeed.

While I don't like that @crossface001 just took my code and only changed the name without leaving credit, I stand by the license (The Unlicense) I apply to my code, which means I will not issue a takedown or anything of that sort. This code is free for anyone to use however they please (and while I do appreciate crediting where appropriate, it is not required).

Really great work! A "rainbow" button could possibly be a nice addition.

Discord mobile doesn't support that yet, neither Android or iOS

This would be a great API, if anyone can make that it would be nice. Amazing work!
