colourpicker 1.0 (2017-09-27)


  • colourInput() now supports an alpha channel, to allow selecting semi-transparent colours, using the allowTransparent boolean parameter. Note that this is a BREAKING CHANGE because previously allowTransparent=TRUE resulted in a checkbox, and now it displays the alpha opacity selector.
  • The value of a colour in colourInput() can be specified either using a colour name ("blue"), HEX codes ("#0000FF"), RGB codes ("rgb(0, 0, 255)"), or HSL codes ("hsl(240, 100, 50)")
  • It is now possible to type the value of a colour (using any of the above versions) directly into the input field. For example, you can type "rgb(0, 0, 255)" directly into the input field to select the green colour.


  • The behaviour of allowTransparent=TRUE has been modified, as mentioned above
  • The transparentText parameter from colourInput() has been removed


  • Fix issue #7: setting a colourinput to background-only and then back to text does not let you click into the input

colourpicker 0.3 (2016-12-05)

  • Added an awesome plotHelper() gadget+addin that makes it easy to pick colours in a plot and see in real time the updated plot as you choose new colours (#1)
  • Added keyboard shortcuts for colourPicker() (left/right arrows to navigate the colours, 1-9 to select a colour, spacebar to add a colour...)
  • don't error out if a HEX value containing alpha transparency is passed to a colourInput() (#4 - thanks @ddiez)
