In the technical documentation of my application I want to split up the modules in different layers, e.g. (starting from the top):
- Reporting layer
- Business logic layer
- Volatile data layer
- Basic data layer
- Database layer
A global image of the application will show all these layers, but I want specific documentation pages to also refer to the same colors.
I want to have a separate color for each of the layers, sufficiently different to make it clear in separate documentation files what we are talking about (based on the color), but still enough pleasing to the eye so that the global image doesn't look ugly.
The color scheme is not going to be used as a global color scheme throughout a web site, but just to indicate the different layers.
