Sometimes you need a color scheme quick, and ColorBrewer is typically the de facto, but it has some limitations.

Colorgorical by Connor Gramazio on the other hand lets you set parameters and color ranges, and it spits out a scheme with perceptual differences.

The interface is a bit rough, but usable enough to get some nice colors.
