Fascinating! And seems like this could be extremely useful, thank you @andresdt!

I'll get around to testing this at some point... just from a quick look at the source code on GitHub, it looks like all JSON inputs and outputs in TinyColor are LC arrays in TinyColor For Livecode? is that right?

It looks like LC color names are catered for as well - for example it should understand strings like "AntiqueWhite3", is that right?

Does chaining work?
ie. how would you express this in LC?

Code: Select all

tinycolor("red").lighten().desaturate().toHexString() // "#f53d3d"
Looks like a massive amount of work and a stellar effort, well done guys - look forward to using this

Actually to answer my own questions it seems everything is indeed in LC array format and the color names are recognised -- amazing!

Just on the demo included: on first opening this, the various colour variations (lighten, darken etc) show correctly, but inputting any colour into the field makes most of them disappear as in:

Lighten, saturate, greyscale, darken and desaturate all disappear...
All colours in the triad/tetrad etc except base colour turn black
As a very minor issue, some text is truncated with no option to scroll...
