Define a set of color name definitions that can then all be activated at once with \setuppalet. To inspect the palet, or to compare its colours against each other, use \showpalet and \comparepalet.

\definepalet used to rely on a non-standard argument parser that would not tolerate trailing commas [1]. This is no longer the case, but sufficiently old installation might still exhibit the problem.


\setupcolors [x11]
\definepalet [colorful] [alert=green]
\definepalet [bleak]    [alert=darkgray]

\setuppalet  [colorful]
\color[alert]{Ain't I a colorful entity?}

\setuppalet  [bleak]
\color[alert]{Ain't I a colorful entity?}
