List

So, since I don’t learn like normal people, whoever they are, I decided to take a stab at documenting the .spcolor files in order to provide the information we wish Microsoft would have provided out of the box.
I’ll be starting with the Grey Composed look from SharePoint 2013 otherwise known as “Palette032.spcolor” in /_catalogs/theme/15.

Here’s the initial code:

I will be updating this post along the way. So check back often to view the updates.

UPDATE: I have been through all of the entries in the Palet032.spcolor file. While I have documented what most of the entries affect, I was unable to locate some of the items in my initial pass. I’ll make a few more passes and update if I can find anoy others. Granted, this is based on a fairly new team site with not everything on it so I’ll most likely add one of everything to the main page and run the next pass to look for changes.
