A module to produce CSS gradients as placeholders for images.
The JS version was quickly written to use as an example on the website, and needs further work. In this fork, some bug fix was added as well as the possibility to return just the plain style text.
The demo.html was developed as a demonstration to get the gradient result of grad.js to use as placeholders in lazy load technique applied in pictures. Thus, it is possible to preprocess the pictures and do not require them before the actual need on the page.
More automations can be used as using asynchronous techniques to send the plain text style classes to back-end platforms and so write a style file.
Include the images to process following the demo.html example, and just run the page in one browser. Make sure each image element have distinct id values.
