Usage

<link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/grapick.min.css">
<script src="path/to/grapick.min.js"></script>
 
<div id="gp"></div>
 
<script type="text/javascript">
  const gp = new Grapick({el: '#gp'});
 
  // Handlers are color stops
  gp.addHandler(0, 'red');
  gp.addHandler(100, 'blue');
 
  // Do stuff on change of the gradient
  gp.on('change', complete => {
    document.body.style.background = gp.getSafeValue();
  })
</script> 

Configurations

  • pfx - Class prefix (string)
  • el - Element on which the picker will be attached (HTMLElement or query string)
  • colorEl - Element to use for the custom color picker, eg. '
    '
  • min - Minimum handler position, default: 0 (integer)
  • max - Maximum handler position, default: 100 (integer)
  • direction - Any supported gradient direction: '90deg' (default), 'top', 'bottom', 'right', '135deg', etc.
  • type - Gradient type, available options: 'linear' (default) | 'radial' | 'repeating-linear' | 'repeating-radial'
  • height - Gradient input height, default: '30px'
  • width - Gradient input width, default: '100%'

Add custom color picker

Grapick is color picker independent and uses the browser's native one, by default, just to make it more accessible, but you can easily switch it with one of your choices (recommended as not all browsers support properly input[type=color]).

In the example below we use spectrum color picker just as the proof of concept

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/spectrum/1.8.0/spectrum.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/spectrum/1.8.0/spectrum.min.css">
 
<div id="gp"></div>
 
<script type="text/javascript">
  const gp = new Grapick({
    el: '#gp',
    colorEl: '<input id="colorpicker"/>' // I'll use this for the custom color picker
  });
 
  gp.setColorPicker(handler => {
    const el = handler.getEl().querySelector('#colorpicker');
 
    $(el).spectrum({
        color: handler.getColor(),
        showAlpha: true,
        change(color) {
          handler.setColor(color.toRgbString());
        },
        move(color) {
          handler.setColor(color.toRgbString(), 0);
        }
    });
  });
</script>
