I'd like to find a solution to create and manage (edit, save, export) palettes on a Linux laptop.
Ideally I'd like to have functionalities similar to webapps like Coolors, Colormind, Paletton, or to Android apps like the awesome Color Harmony.
In case you wonder, I'd like to manage them locally without having to rely on websites (I don't want to create new accounts just for this) or to Apps on my smartphone, having a Desktop solution would be the perfect way to integrate this kind of task in my workflow.
Have a start here and look what is available:
Also consider that mostly, a palette is "just a file". So your "management" could possibly be done in your preferred file-explorer: Well named folders, good file names or versioning as needed.
You have not named your preferred tools for using such palettes and how massively you want to edit them. Most graphics tools in Linux (like Inkscape and Scribus or GIMP) allow you to import or edit palettes. And then export of course.
If you want to make or show/print entire palettes from scratch, you might find yourself writing or finding-and-tweaking scripts, like some Scribus users are doing (check out the Scribus mailing list for examples).
