Named Color Picker

The named color picker takes a somewhat different approach to choosing a color. Instead of a color spectrum/wheel, colors are selected from a fullscreen grid by name, or searched for in a dropdown, also by name.

About the plugin

Video Color Picker

A tool to pick up the Color Value within any frame from a HTML5 Video. Support both Vue.js and jQuery.

Noticed that your video resource host need to allow CORS, otherwise you cannot use getPixelColor on your canvas, and the project won't work.

About the plugin


Colorpickle is a free color picker plugin for jQuery. While the support for color input type is getting better all the time, not all browsers support it and most native browser and OS color pickers are pretty crappy. Colorpickle to the rescue!

Dave Perrett github page

jQuery Simple Color is a very simple color-picker plugin that displays a square grid of selectable colors. I found a lot of the other color-picker plugins quite heavy, so I ended up writing this to provide a dead-simple alternative. The list of colors it uses can be customized, and the layout size etc can be configured to a certain extent.
