Color coding groups fast in Grasshopper

Are you spending too much time fiddling around with group colors in Grasshopper? If you are color coding your Grasshopper groups according to function you either: 
  1. Know all your favorite colors' RGB values by heart. 
  2. Accept that your color coding is not perfect, but close. 
Both solutions can be time-consuming, and neither are good.

These are concerns of Timo Harboe Nielsen from BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group. He has now played with the Grasshopper API and made a script that colors groups based on group names. For example, if a group contains the word Input, the group color will be green.
