Syntax

Currently a subset of the full syntax is supported:

linear-gradient(
  [ <direction>,]?
  <color>,
  <animation-timing-function>,
  <color>
)

The steps syntax is also being figured out and currently this is supported.


Usage

postcss([require('postcss-easing-gradients')])

See PostCSS Usage docs for examples for your environment.


Options

colorStops: 15

is the default. A lower number creates a more "low poly" gradient with less code but a higher risk of banding.

alphaDecimals: 5

is the default. A lower number can result in banding.

colorMode: 'lrgb'

is the default color space used for interpolation and is closest to what most browsers use. Other options are 'rgb', 'hsl', 'lab' and 'lch' as per chromajs documentation
