DeltaE - Quantify Color Difference

Check out the following GitHub Pages respository for information on this library.

http://zschuessler.github.io/DeltaE/

About Delta E

This package gives access to three color difference algorithms. These algorithms represent the hard work of the International Commission on Illumination (CIE).

Historically, each iterative algorithm has been used in print and textile industries to maintain consistency in machine calibration. These days, far more interesting use cases arise with media processing.

Install It

DeltaE comes in flavors of npm and Bower.

// install via npm
npm install delta-e

// install via Bower
bower install delta-e

Use It

// For npm: use require
var DeltaE = require('delta-e');

// For Bower: include the script. DeltaE global now accessible.
<script src="bower_components/delta-e/dist/deltae.global.min.js"></script>

// Create two test LAB color objects to compare!
var color1 = {L: 36, A: 60, B: 41};
var color2 = {L: 100, A: 40, B: 90};

// 1976 formula
console.log(DeltaE.getDeltaE76(color1, color2));

// 1994 formula
console.log(DeltaE.getDeltaE94(color1, color2));

// 2000 formula
console.log(DeltaE.getDeltaE00(color1, color2));

Tests

A simple Mocha test is setup to test the accuracy of each dE algorithm, for both npm and Bower versions.

$ cd tests/
$ mocha main.js

Gulp Tasks

build

Builds both the Bower and npm version from source.

$ gulp build

jsdoc
