# create random hex color code using python

Today we are going to learn how to generate hex color code using python. Nowadays the hex color code is very useful in any designing part. In CSS part color is used as **RGB** and **Hex** code format. It is very easy to create/generate any random hex value in python. In this article, we covered **Hex code** generate.

Let’s go for the coding section:

## Random hex Color code generate in python

Requirement:

**random**library

**Code:**

import random random_number = random.randint(0,16777215) hex_number = str(hex(random_number)) hex_number ='#'+ hex_number[2:] print('A Random Hex Color Code is :',hex_number)

**Output:**

A Random Hex Color Code is : #d68637

**Process:**

In this code at first, we import the random library to work.

Then we generate a random integer decimal number by using **random.randint()** function, which must be in between lower value 0 and upper value 16777215.

Then we convert the decimal number into hexadecimal value. And we convert the data type of the hexadecimal value into a string data type to perform any string operations.

As we know in python, after conversion any int value into hexadecimal, its starts with **0x **in the hexadecimal value, to remove **0x,** we take the string value after 2nd position.

Finally, we get a Hex code. Then simply we add a **‘#’** character at the beginning of the hex code. And Print it.

To generate random RGB color code read this:

### An alternative way, without performing string operation in hex code

**Code:**

import random random_number = random.randint(0,16777215) hex_number =format(random_number,'x') hex_number = '#'+hex_number print('A Random Hex Color is :',hex_number)

**Output:**

A Random Hex Color is : #75a70c

**Tricks:** Here we use **format(number,’x’)** to convert the int decimal value to hexadecimal value. The benefit of this function is, this function will return the hex value without adding **0x** at the beginning of the result.

How do you apply this to objects, I am trying to assign random color to trees for a project

Actually it should look like this:

random_number = random.randint(1118481,16777215)

hex_number = str(hex(random_number))

hex_number = ‘#’+ hex_number [2:]

Otherwise there can be incorrect color codes.
