This project was generated with Angular CLI version 9.0.1.


Downloads Version License


Great UX starts with two basic principles - ease of use and simplicity. Selecting a color should be as easy as moving a slider, clicking a checkbox or pressing a key just like other basic form elements behave.

This is a flexible and elegant material-ish design color picker. Developed with mobile devices in mind. Key features:

  • Supports touch devices
  • Angular animations

This component doesn't have feature parity with it's predecessor for Angular 1.x

The component is developed so it can be used with template-driven or reactive form, or as a simple component.

npm install -S @radial-color-picker/angular-color-picker

In your app module or any module that will hold the components that are using the radial color picker:

import { RadialColorPickerModule } from 'radial-color-picker';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],

export class AppModule { }

First Asked Questions

Color picker uses hex. How can I use other formats like rgb() or hsl?

The color picker will recognize the format of the input, but will still work internally with hex value of the provided color. You can change the output format by setting the colorType property to hex, rgb or hsl

How to select other shades of the solid colors?

We suggest to add a custom slider for saturation and luminosity or use <input type="range">.

How can I change the active color of the picker after initialization?

rcp-radial-color-picker component uses OnChanges lifecycle hook to detect changes of the color binding. When using <rcp-radial-color-picker [color]="color"></rcp-radial-color-picker>
