Feature Proposal: Add ColorPickerPlugin to Core TWiki Distribution


For usability when creating a new TWiki web we can add a color picker to the create new web form in ManagingWebs.

Description and Documentation

Add the new ColorPickerPlugin to the core TWiki distribution and add a color picker to the create new web form in ManagingWebs.


Example of create new web form for demo:

Name of new web: The name must start with an upper case letter, followed by upper or lower case letters or numbers. Specify a short name to avoid long URLs.
Based on web: Select a TemplateWeb
Web color:
Select color for the new web, shown in the list of webs.

Note: Use a light color within the top 1/4th area of the center square depicting the saturation/luminance gradients.
Site Map: Yes   No Include this web in the site map

Enter a short description of the web. Write [[Web.TopicName][title]] instead of just TopicName if you include links. This description will be used in the SiteMap
Hidden: Yes   No Specify if you want to exclude the web from a "search all webs" search. This will not prevent users accessing the web. It will simply hide it from searches.

I just rewrote the ColorPickerContrib to ColorPickerPlugin, hence I renamed the topic here.

And now in SVN trunk, TWikirev:19906.

This plugin is now enabled by default (in TWiki.spec). I also changed the add new web form in ManagingWebs to use the color picker for the web color.
