and to obtain an hexadecimal code color from a string you just:
const string2HexCodeColor = new String2HexCodeColor();
console.log("color for the text 'Test Text':")
console.log(string2HexCodeColor.stringToColor('Test Text'))

console.log("color for the text 'Test Text':")

Shade
If you want to obtain darker or lighter colors than usual you can add a second parameter to shade the output. For instance
const string2HexCodeColor = new String2HexCodeColor();
console.log("color for the text 'Test Text' with shade -0.5")
console.log(string2HexCodeColor.stringToColor('Test Text',-0.5))

console.log("color for the text 'Test Text' with shade -0.2")
console.log(string2HexCodeColor.stringToColor('Test Text',-0.2))

console.log("color for the text 'Test Text' with shade 0.2")
console.log(string2HexCodeColor.stringToColor('Test Text',0.2))

this will give you the hex colors:
color for the text 'Test Text' with shade -0.5
#7e484a
color for the text 'Test Text2' with shade -0.2:
#c97276
color for the text 'Test Text2' with shade 0.2:
