This library includes utility classes to get colors in various representation formats.

The initial source code has been derived from TCPDF.

Getting started

First, you need to install all development dependencies using Composer:

$ curl -sS | php
$ mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

This project include a Makefile that allows you to test and build the project with simple commands. To see all available options:

make help

To install all the development dependencies:

make build_dev

Running all tests

Before committing the code, please check if it passes all tests using

make qa_all

this generates the phpunit coverage report in target/coverage. Please check if the tests are covering all code.

Generate the documentation:

make docs

Generate static analysis reports in target/report:

make reports

Other make options allows you to install this library globally and build an RPM package. Please check all the available options using make help.


Examples are located in the example directory.

Start a development server (requires PHP 5.4) using the command:

make server

and point your browser to http://localhost:8000/index.php


Create a composer.json in your projects root-directory:

    "require": {
        "tecnickcom/tc-lib-color": "dev-master"
    "repositories": [
            "type": "vcs",
            "url": ""


This library is mainly intended to be used and included in other PHP projects using Composer. However, since some production environments dictates the installation of any application as RPM or DEB packages, this library includes make targets for building these packages (make rpm and make deb). The packages are generated under the target directory.

When this library is installed using an RPM or DEB package, you can use it your code by including the autoloader:

require_once ('/usr/share/php/Com/Tecnick/Color/autoload.php');

NOTE: Updated RPM and Debian packages of this library can be downloaded from:
