colorama.js

Please note: colorama.js is still in active development. Code will change and bugs will exist!

Colorama.js was created after the need for a simpler, more intuitive API for color manipulation. Colorama.js gives developers complete control over color transformations, allowing color palettes and conversions to be accessed with ease.

Installation

Install colorama.js by either forking this repository or installing through npm (recommended).

npm install colorama

You can also use colorama.js from directly within the browser. Simply include the colorama.*.js or colorama.*.min.js file from the 'dist' directory to get started!

Usage

A Colorama object is required to manipulate or convert a color. Defining a new Colorama object is easy:

Colorama('red');
Colorama('#ff0000');
Colorama('#f00');
Colorama('FF0000');
Colorama('F00');
Colorama({ r: 255, g: 0, b: 0 });
Colorama({ h: 0, s: 100, l: 50 });
Colorama({ h: 0, s: 100, v: 100 });
Colorama('rgb(255, 0, 0)');
Colorama('hsl(0, 100%, 50%)');

Conversions

After defining a Colorama color, you are able to convert it to many popular color formats such as hex, rgb, hsl and hsv. This can be achieved in the following ways:

Colorama('red').rgb(); // { r: 255, g: 0, b: 0 }
Colorama('#ff0000').hsl(); // { h: 0, s: 100, l: 50 }
Colorama({ r: 255, g: 0, b: 0 }).hex(); // 'FF0000'

You can also convert a Colorama color into a string format. This is particularly useful for when applying a Colorama color to a CSS style.

Colorama('red').string('rgb'); // 'rgb(255, 0, 0)'
Colorama('ff0000').string('hsl'); // 'hsl(0, 100%, 50%)'
Colorama({ r: 255, g: 0, b: 0 }).string('hex'); // '#ff0000'
Colorama('#f00').css(); // '#ff0000' (same as above)
