Usage

The Tailwind CSS Custom Color Palette plugin generates new utilities like .bg-yourColor-400, .text-yourColor-200 or .border-yourColor-700 based on your defined colors. Every color you defined will be used as -500 variante in the palette.

Examples

<h1 class="text-yourColor-600">
    <!-- Content -->
</h1>
<div class="bg-yourColor-200 p-8 border-2 border-yourColor-700 border-dashed">
    <!-- Content -->
</div>
<div class="bg-gradient-to-b from-yourColor-100 to-yourColor-200">
    <!-- Content -->
</div>

Configuration

In the following example you can see all available options (default values) for the Custom Color Palette plugin. To add your own configuration add customColorPaletteto themeand variants. Your new settings will be merged with the default settings. To change the plugin behaviour in terms of how it adds the new classes as utilities you can add these options as objects to the default function.

// tailwind.config.js
module.exports = {
    // ...
    theme: {
        // ...
        customColorPalette: {
            colors: {
                teal: "#408075", // add more colors to the plugin
            },
            utilities: {
                textColor: true, // render text color utilities: true (default) | false
                backgroundColor: true, // render background color utilities: true (default) | false
                borderColor: true, // render border color utilities: true (default) | false
                gradientColorStops: true, // render gradient color utilities: true (default) | false
                placeholderColor: true, // render placeholder color utilities: true (default) | false
                divideColor: true, // render divide color utilities: true (default) | false
                ringColor: true, // render ring color utilities: true (default) | false
                ringOffsetColor: true, // render ring offset color utilities: true (default) | false
            },
            steps: 100, // define the steps between each shade: 100 (default) | 50
            calculation: "relative", // change color calculation: relative (default) | linear
        },
        // ...
    },
    variants: {
        // ...
        customColorPalette: ["responsive", "hover", "active", "focus"],
        // ...
    },
    plugins: [
        require("@markusantonwolf/ta-youtube")({
            respectPrefix: true, // respect prefix option in config: true (default) | false 
            respectImportant: true, // respect important option in config: true (default) | false
