Gem Version Build Status Code Climate

Screenshot

See http://labs.abeautifulsite.net/jquery-minicolors/

Installation

Add to Gemfile and run bundle install:

# Gemfile
gem 'jquery-minicolors-rails'

Add to app/assets/javascripts/application.js:

//= require jquery # Not included
//= require jquery.minicolors

Add to app/assets/stylesheets/application.css:

/*
 *= require jquery.minicolors
 */

Usage

Just call minicolors() with any text-input selector:

# With default options:
$ -> $('input[type=text]').minicolors()

# With Bootstrap theme (Bootstrap-3 is supported):
$ -> $('input[type=text]').minicolors theme: 'bootstrap'

SimpleForm

Add to app/assets/javascripts/application.js:

//= require jquery # Not included
//= require jquery.minicolors
//= require jquery.minicolors.simple_form

See https://github.com/plataformatec/simple_form

<%# app/views/balloons/_form.html.erb %>

<%# Basic usage: %>
<%= simple_form_for @balloon do |f| %>
  <%= f.input :color, as: :minicolors %>
<% end %>

<%# With Bootstrap theme and swatch on the right: %>
<%= simple_form_for @balloon do |f| %>
  <%= f.input :color, as: :minicolors, input_html: {data: {
          minicolors: {theme: :bootstrap, position: :right}}} %>
<% end %>

Configuration

As of https://github.com/rails/rails/pull/7968 (Rails > 4.*) the asset pipeline precompile command will ignore the images. Since jquery.minicolors uses an image for backgrounds, the image is by default splitted into chunks of data URLs and embedded into the CSS directly. This results in a slightly bigger compiled CSS (~50k bigger), but avoids unnecessary image request to the server and headache on deployment. You can still instruct JqueryMinicolorsRails to use the original image instead of the data URLs:

# config/initializers/jquery_minicolors_rails.rb
JqueryMinicolorsRails.use_data_urls = false

Additionally you would also have to copy the image to the deployment target:

# config/deploy.rb
after :deploy do
  target = File.join(%W[#{release_path} public assets])
  run "cp -r `cd #{release_path} && bundle show jquery-minicolors-rails`/vendor/assets/images/jquery.minicolors.png #{target}"
end

Versioning

Gem Version

Gem has the same version as the vendored minicolors library (http://git.io/ZWaGNg) plus an extra minor version number.
