Extension to the Django web framework that provides database and form color fields
Branch: master
Clone or download



An extension to the Django web framework that provides a database and form field to accept and store colors in the RGB format.


>>> pip install django-colorful

Make sure 'colorful' is in your INSTALLED_APPS:



In order to use a color field you just have to add it to your model definition:

from django.db import models
from colorful.fields import RGBColorField

class Tag(models.Model):
    color = RGBColorField()

The RGBColorField class also accepts a color keyword argument which can be set to a list of colors that should be visible as preset color palette:

color = RGBColorField(colors=['#FF0000', '#00FF00', '#0000FF'])

The ColorFieldWidget should take care of providing a JavaScript based shim on browsers that don't support the HTML5 color input.


To enable HTML5 color input with Django Grappelli ensure that GRAPPELLI_CLEAN_INPUT_TYPES is set to False in your settings file.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
