Colorizable

Build Status

This library provides integration of the color gem with Rails. Use 'colorize' to specify which fields you want to be backed by Color::RGB objects.

Install

Add the gem to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'colorizable'

And execute:

bundle

You can also install it yourself using:

gem install colorizable

Usage

ActiveRecord

The Uniform model has three string columns called primary_color, secondary_color, and font_color. Each column has a hex value stored in it. Instead of dealing with a string, it would be helpful to deal with Color::RGB objects which provide a number of helpers.

class Uniform < ActiveRecord::Base

  colorize :primary_color, :secondary_color, :font_color

end

Each color on the model is now a Color::RGB object. The objects come with a number of helpers to convert the color to other formats like rgb.

uniform = Uniform.new
uniform.primary_color = "#cccccc"
uniform.primary_color.red # 204
uniform.primary_color.green # 204

uniform.secondary_color = { r: 204, g: 204, b: 204 }
uniform.secondary_color.to_s # #cccccc
