Documentation

Options:

If you don't want these methods added to the window object simply modify the immediate function to pass in the JavaScript object of your choosing.

Methods:
  • toRGB (String color)

    • summary:

      • Converts a 6 digit Hexadecimal string value to an RGB integer array. Important! input must be a 6 digit Hexadecimal string "bad" will not convert correctly but "bbaadd" will. To keep the function as light as possible there is no idiot-proofing, if you pass in bad data I'm not fixing it for you :-)
    • example:

      • Convert the Hexadecimal value "c0ffee" (a blue color) to RGB integers. The variable "rgb" will be equal to [192, 255, 238]

        var rgb = toRGB("c0ffee");
        //rgb === [192, 255, 238]
        
    • color: String

      • 6 digit Hexadecimal string value
    • returns: Array

      • An array containing the RGB integers in the following format [red, green, blue]
  • toHex (Number red, Number green, Number blue)

    • summary:

      • Converts 3 RGB integer values into a 6 digit Hexadecimal string. Important! input must be integers with a range of 0 to 255. To keep the function as light as possible there is no idiot-proofing, if you pass in bad data I'm not fixing it for you :-)
    • example:

      • Convert the RGB values [192, 255, 238] to Hexadecimal string. The variable "hex" will be equal to "c0ffee"

        var hex = toHex(192, 255, 238);
        //hex === "c0ffee"
        
    • red: Number

      • number ranging from 0 to 255 indicating the amount of red
    • green: Number

      • number ranging from 0 to 255 indicating the amount of green
    • blue: Number

      • number ranging from 0 to 255 indicating the amount of blue
    • returns: String

      • 6 digit Hexadecimal string value
