#' Graphical User Interface to Pick Colors in HCL Space
#' 
#' The app visualizes colors either along the hue-chroma plane for a given luminance value or along the
#' luminance-chroma plane for a given hue. Colors can be entered by specifying the hue (H), chroma (C),
#' and luminance (L) values via sliders, by entering an RGB hex code, or by clicking on a color in the
#' hue-chroma or luminance-chroma plane. It is also possible to select individual colors and add them
#' to a palette for comparison and future reference. 
#'
#' \code{choose_color} is a convenience alias for \code{hcl_color_picker} to
#' go along with \code{\link{choose_palette}}. Another alias is \code{hclcolorpicker}.
#' 
#' @param shiny.trace logical: used for debugging the shiny interface.
