Feedback on ColorPickerContrib

-- FlavioCurti - 27 Oct 2006

Thanks Flavio for sharing this code with the TWikiCommunity!

I did some minor fixes to the contrib topic, please feel free to take this into the next release.

Suggestion: Add the ColorPickerContrib.txt file to the package, and move the pub files from pub/TWiki/ColorPicker to pub/TWiki/ColorPickerContrib. That way it is all in one place, and the user has the doumentation at an installed site.

Here is a GPLed color picker that is very intuitive: http://www.acko.net/dev/farbtastic. This looks similar to a color picker in a desktop application. As an idea, could this be put into a Javascript popup, thus replacing the current color picker?

Somtimes it is good to use web safe colors. As an idea, here is study of a combined color picker:

Its no longer necessary to use websafe colors, but a color subset can support users by restricting choice.

I did a complete rewrite of the color picker. The old color picker Javascript code is no longer maintained upstream. I am using a different color picker that is very intuitive and is based on jQuery:

To do:

  • The color picker is currently shown inline. To preserve space when editing a TWiki Form, it would be bice to have a small edit button next to the input field that pops up the color picker (as the JSCalendarContrib does)

This contrib is now replaced by the new ColorPickerPlugin.
