var DirectoryColorfy = require('directory-colorfy');
var dc = new DirectoryColorfy( input, output, options );
// Next

Input folder of SVGs

Type: String

Output folder

Type: Object Default value: {}

A hash of colors to pass in with names.


{ "primary": "#ff0000" }

And the color hash that is passed through is:

{ "primary": "green" }

The output folder should end up with:


Which will all be completely filled in with their specific color.

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
