npm Travis

JavaScript library for color conversion and manipulation with support for CSS color strings.

var color = Color("#7743CE");

color.alpha(0.5).lighten(0.5);

console.log(color.hslString());  // "hsla(262, 59%, 81%, 0.5)"

Install

$ npm install color

Usage

var Color = require("color")

Setters

var color = Color("rgb(255, 255, 255)")
var color = Color({r: 255, g: 255, b: 255})
var color = Color().rgb(255, 255, 255)
var color = Color().rgb([255, 255, 255])

Pass any valid CSS color string into Color() or a hash of values. Also load in color values with rgb(), hsl(), hsv(), hwb(), and cmyk().

color.red(120)

Set the values for individual channels with alpha, red, green, blue, hue, saturation (hsl), saturationv (hsv), lightness, whiteness, blackness, cyan, magenta, yellow, black

Getters

color.rgb()       // {r: 255, g: 255, b: 255}

Get a hash of the rgb values with rgb(), similarly for hsl(), hsv(), and cmyk()

color.rgbArray()  // [255, 255, 255]

Get an array of the values with rgbArray(), hslArray(), hsvArray(), and cmykArray().

color.red()       // 255

Get the value for an individual channel.

CSS Strings

color.hslString()  // "hsl(320, 50%, 100%)"

Different CSS String formats for the color are on hexString, rgbString, percentString, hslString, hwbString, and keyword (undefined if it's not a keyword color). "rgba" and "hsla" are used if the current alpha value of the color isn't 1.

Luminosity

color.luminosity();  // 0.412

The WCAG luminosity of the color. 0 is black, 1 is white.

color.contrast(Color("blue"))  // 12

The WCAG contrast ratio to another color, from 1 (same color) to 21 (contrast b/w white and black).

color.light();  // true
color.dark();   // false

Get whether the color is "light" or "dark", useful for deciding text color.

Manipulation

color.negate()         // rgb(0, 100, 255) -> rgb(255, 155, 0)

color.lighten(0.5)     // hsl(100, 50%, 50%) -> hsl(100, 50%, 75%)
color.darken(0.5)      // hsl(100, 50%, 50%) -> hsl(100, 50%, 25%)

color.saturate(0.5)    // hsl(100, 50%, 50%) -> hsl(100, 75%, 50%)
color.desaturate(0.5)  // hsl(100, 50%, 50%) -> hsl(100, 25%, 50%)
color.greyscale()      // #5CBF54 -> #969696

color.whiten(0.5)      // hwb(100, 50%, 50%) -> hwb(100, 75%, 50%)
color.blacken(0.5)     // hwb(100, 50%, 50%) -> hwb(100, 50%, 75%)

color.clearer(0.5)     // rgba(10, 10, 10, 0.8) -> rgba(10, 10, 10, 0.4)
color.opaquer(0.5)     // rgba(10, 10, 10, 0.8) -> rgba(10, 10, 10, 1.0)

color.rotate(180)      // hsl(60, 20%, 20%) -> hsl(240, 20%, 20%)
color.rotate(-90)      // hsl(60, 20%, 20%) -> hsl(330, 20%, 20%)

color.mix(Color("yellow"))        // cyan -> rgb(128, 255, 128)
color.mix(Color("yellow"), 0.3)   // cyan -> rgb(77, 255, 179)

// chaining
color.green(100).greyscale().lighten(0.6)

Clone

You can can create a copy of an existing color object using clone():

color.clone() // -> New color object

And more to come...

Propers

The API was inspired by color-js. Manipulation functions by CSS tools like Sass, LESS, and Stylus.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
