Spectrum

The No Hassle Colorpicker

I wanted a colorpicker that didn't require images, and that had an API that made sense to me as a developer who has worked with color in a number of applications. I had used existing plugins (which I was quite grateful for), but decided that I would make a smaller, simpler one.

I started using canvas, then switched to CSS gradients, since it turned out to be easier to manage, and worked better across browsers.

See demo and docs: http://bgrins.github.com/spectrum/

Thanks to the following places:

The tool I use for measuring JavaScript size: http://closure-compiler.appspot.com/home

// ==ClosureCompiler==
// @compilation_level SIMPLE_OPTIMIZATIONS
// @output_file_name default.js
// @code_url https://raw.github.com/bgrins/spectrum/master/spectrum.js

Here is the JavaScript size
