I'm working on SharePoint 2013 and I have a problem with color palettes. I know how to create new palette, how to change colors and how to assign it to a site. This is easy as it should be.
I have my own master page, depedning on color palettes. It is modified seatle.master. Let's say that I want (just for example) create a small 10px x 10px div square, that has the same color as Suite bar background. And I don't know how do it.
I assume, that some translation happens when creating corev15.css, but I can't find anywhere this file before color applying.
Personally I think this should be as easy as applying classes to tags. Colors defined in palette and then using them as classes. I don't know why this became more complicated.
Probably there are is some magic markup that can be used in css, but I can't find any information about it.

Late already but hope it may help others in the future. In Benjamin Niaulin's post, kindly see the section Using the names provided in the spcolor file in your CSS.
