I needed a plugin, that will create a list of colors. This colors should be calculated by using two given colors (start and end color) and a calculation method like „linear“ or „trigonometrical“. So I have started to create a new jQuery plugin (yes, it makes fun), which could solve this. It extends jQuery with these functions:
- and other helper functions
I have also added a function to set the color at jQuery objects. You can call…[source:js]
$(‚#list1 li‘).colorize(‚#ff1313‘, ‚#00F400‘, [1,1,1],“color“);
… to set the color attribute for all list elements in „#list1“ to colors, starting with ‚#ff1313‘, ending with ‚#00F400‘ and using linear transformation.
