Which colors are light. Other are dark.

kivymd.color_definitions.text_colors

Text colors generated from light_colors. “000000” for light and “FFFFFF” for dark.

How to generate text_colors dict

text_colors = {}
for p in palette:
    text_colors[p] = {}
    for h in hue:
        if h in light_colors[p]:
            text_colors[p][h] = "000000"
        else:
            text_colors[p][h] = "FFFFFF"
kivymd.color_definitions.theme_colors = ['Primary', 'Secondary', 'Background', 'Surface', 'Error', 'On_Primary', 'On_Secondary', 'On_Background', 'On_Surface', 'On_Error']

Valid theme colors.
