Bootstrap Color Picker Sliders

Github project page Download

This plugin is based on jQuery Color Picker Sliders, which doesn't need Bootstrap to work.

Examples

Full featured popover (HSV panel, HSL and RGB sliders, color swatches)

This popovers shows all the features in a grouped manner, so the user can choose the preferred color picking method.

HSV flat

<div id="hsvflat"></div>
<script>
    $("#hsvflat").ColorPickerSliders({
        color: "rgb(36, 170, 242)",
        flat: true,
        sliders: false,
        swatches: false,
        hsvpanel: true
    });
</script>
          

HSL and CIE Lch sliders with customizable color swatches (flat rendering)

<div id="hslflat"></div>
<script>
    $("#hslflat").ColorPickerSliders({
        color: "rgb(36, 170, 242)",
        flat: true,
        order: {
            hsl: 1,
            cie: 2,
            preview: 3
        }
    });
</script>
          

Different sizes and color sliders (in bootstrap popovers)

<input type="text" class="form-control" id="small" value="#adff2f">
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="smallhsv" value="#2FB6FF">
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="default" value="#7f7f7f">
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="large" value="rgb(251, 167, 219)">
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="swatchesonly">
<input type="text" class="form-control" id="hslswatches" value="hsl(180, 50%, 50%)">
<script>
  $("input#small").ColorPickerSliders({
    size: 'sm',
    placement: 'bottom',
    swatches: false,
    order: {
      hsl: 1
    }
  });
  $("input#smallhsv").ColorPickerSliders({
    size: 'sm',
    placement: 'right',
    swatches: false,
    sliders: false,
    hsvpanel: true
  });
  $("input#default").ColorPickerSliders({
    placement: 'bottom',
    swatches: false,
    order: {
      rgb: 1
    }
  });
  $("input#large").ColorPickerSliders({
    size: 'lg',
    placement: 'bottom',
    swatches: false,
    order: {
      cie: 1
    }
  });
  $("input#swatchesonly").ColorPickerSliders({
    placement: 'bottom',
    color: 'red',
    swatches: ['red', 'green', 'blue'],
    customswatches: false,
    order: {}
  });
  $("input#hslswatches").ColorPickerSliders({
    placement: 'bottom',
    order: {
      hsl: 1,
      opacity: 2
    }
  });
</script>
          

Using the onchange() event

<button class="btn btn-default" id="bgcolor">Change body bg color</button>
<script>
        $("#bgcolor").ColorPickerSliders({
            color: 'white',
            previewontriggerelement: false,
            title: 'Body background color',
            order: {
                rgb: 1,
                preview: 2
            },
            onchange: function(container, color) {
                var body = $('body');

                body.css("background-color", color.tiny.toRgbString());

                if (color.cielch.l < 60) {
                    body.css("color", "white");
                }
                else {
                    body.css("color", "black");
                }
            }
        });
</script>
          

Full featured flat rendering

This example shows the CIE Lch sliders which is designed to approximate human vision. It means that yellow and blue with the same CIE lightness are identical to humans (which is not the case with HSL where blue seems to be much darker than yellow with the same HSL lightness).

CIE Lch is a special color model where not all colors are reproducible in the physical world, so this plugin just lowers the chroma of these colors to be convertible to RGB. You can read more about it on Wikipedia.

<div id="flat"></div>
<script>
    $("#flat").ColorPickerSliders({
        flat: true,
        invalidcolorsopacity: 0
    });
</script>
          
invalidcolorsopacity hiddens the colors from the CIE sliders whose can not be converted to RGB without lowering their chroma values. It is good for creating color schemas.

Settings

Option Description
color This is the initial color if there is no valid (any CSS formatted) color value on the connected input element. Can be in any format that Tiny Color supports.
size 'sm': Small sized popover.
'default': Default popover size.
'large': Large popover.
placement Popover placement direction. Can be 'auto' | 'top' | 'left' | 'bottom' | 'right'.
When 'auto' is specified, it will dynamically reorient the popover. For example, if placement is 'auto left', the tooltip will display to the left when possible, otherwise it will display right.
preventtouchkeyboardonshow true: Makes the input readonly to prevent touch keyboard to show up on focus, needs a second click to become editable.
title '': Popover title.
hsvpanel false: Enable/disable HSV color selector panel.
sliders true: Enable/disable the sliders.
grouping true: Enable/disable grouping of the HSV panel, Sliders and Swatches section.
trigger 'focus': The popover will be visible on focus or on click.
'manual': No auto trigger of popover on focus/click. Must trigger colorpickersliders.show and colorpickersliders.hide events to show/hide the popover.
flat false: The color picker is rendered in a popup, which is shown on focus of the connected element.
true: The color picker is rendered right after the connected element, and is always visible.
previewformat This is the color format on the preview slider (if visible). Can be rgb, hsl or hex. Note that hex format can not represent the opacity value.
swatches array: Array of CSS colors (can be CSS color names as well).
false: The swatches are disabled.
customswatches string: Name of the custom swatches group. Color pickers with the same customswatches name share the same swatch colors, so if you add a new color to one of the color pickers, then all the color pickers swatches will be updated on the page which has the same customswatches name.
false: The custom swatches are disabled, so only the predefined swatches can be used.
connectedinput selector or jQuery object: The connected input elements value will be automatically updated in sync with the color picker. The color format which the color is represented i the input can be set via the data-color-format property. It can be any of hex, hsl or rgb. If it is hex, then the opacity will be discarded.
updateinterval Update interval of the sliders while dragging (ms). The default is 30.
previewontriggerelement true: Preview of the color on the connected element's background.
false: No preview on the connected element.
previewcontrasttreshold 30: If previewontriggerelement is enabled, then if the lightness is below of this value, the element's text color will be white. Otherwise the text is black.
erroneousciecolormarkers true: Unconvertable CIE colors are marked with an exclamation mark on the CIE sliders level marker.
false: No exclamation mark on the markers.
invalidcolorsopacity 1: Opacity of the invalid (unconvertable) area of the CIE sliders.
finercierangeedges true: Sharper, more accurate edges of the valid CIE ranges on the sliders.
false: Smoother edges of the valid CIE ranges on the sliders.
order An object which defines which sliders appear and in which order.
Possible properties: opacity, hsl, rgb, cie, preview.
labels An object which defines the labels of the sliders.
Possible properties: hslhue, hslsaturation, hsllightness, rgbred, rgbgreen, rgbblue, cielightness, ciechroma, ciehue, opacity, preview.
onchange function(container, color): This function is triggered when the color is changed with the sliders or via a connected input. The color parameter holds the actual color object in the following formats: rgb object, hsl object, cie lch object, Tiny Color object.
titleswatchesadd string: Title of the add color to swatches button.
titleswatchesreset string: Title of the reset swatches button.
