color

color computation


local color = require'color'

Color computation in HSL space. Original code from Sputnik's colors lib, by Yuri Takhteyev.

  • r, g, b, s, L are in 0..1 range.
  • h is in 0..360 range.

Direct conversions

color.hsl_to_rgb(h, s, L) -> r, g, b HSL -> RGB; h is modulo 360; s, L are clamped to range
color.rgb_to_hsl(r, g, b) -> h, s, L RGB -> HSL; r, g, b are clamped to range
color.rgb_to_string(r, g, b) -> s generate '#rrggbb' hex color
color.string_to_rgb(s) -> r, g, b | nil parse a '#rrggbb' hex color
color.rgba_to_string(r, g, b, a) -> s generate a '#rrggbbaa' hex color
color.string_to_rgba(s) -> r, g, b, a | nil parse a '#rrggbbaa' hex color (the 'aa' part is optional)

Color objects

color('#rrggbb') -> col create a new HSL color object from a RGB string
color(h, s, L) -> col create a new HSL color object from HSL values
col.h, col.s, col.L color fields (for reading and writing)
col:hsl() -> h, s, L
col() -> h, s, L
color fields unpacked
col:rgb() -> r, g, b convert to RGB
col:tostring() -> '#rrggbb' convert to RGB string
col:hue_offset(hue_delta) -> color create a color with a different hue (in degrees)
col:complementary() -> color create a complementary color
col:neighbors(angle) -> color1, color2 create two neighboring colors (by hue), offset by "angle"
col:triadic() -> color1, color2 create two new colors to make a triadic color scheme
col:split_complementary(angle) -> color1, color2 create two new colors, offset by angle from a color's complementary
col:desaturate_to(saturation) -> color create a new color with saturation set to a new value
col:desaturate_by(r) -> color create a new color with saturation set to a old saturation times r
col:lighten_to(lightness) -> color create a new color with lightness set to a new value
col:lighten_by(r) -> color create a new color with lightness set to its lightness times r
col:variations(f, n) -> {color1, ...} create n variations of a color using supplied function and return them as a table
col:tints(n) -> {color1, ...} create n tints of a color and return them as a table
col:shades(n) -> {color1, ...} create n shades of a color and return them as a table
col:tint(r) -> color create a color tint
col:shade(r) -> color create a color shade
