Tiny jQuery colorPicker

Looking for mobile first, tiny foot print, fast, scaleable, flexible and pluggable...
This 5.07KB (gZip; 11.39KB minified) small HSB color picker is based on a subset of colors.js from it's big brother colorPicker, supports all modern features like touch and MS pointer, GPU accelerated rendering, battery friendly requestAnimationFrame and provides a lot of hooks for developers to write plugins (See demo plugins below in Demo).


On all elements with className 'color':

Switch between plugins: (see index.html for more details...)


There is only one file you need to load... No images and no CSS required.

<script type="text/javascript" src="jqColorPicker.min.js">
<script type="text/javascript">
    $('.color').colorPicker(); // that's it


Tiny jQuery colorPicker only loads into memory if triggered to show and auto repositiones inside view-port if it doesn't fit. It uses battery saving technologies, super fast rendering for best performance on desktop and mobile browsers and renders perfectly smooth on retina and high resolution displays.
This colorPicker is very flexible to modify and customize and there is an easy way to write plugins to extend functionality, look and feel...
As Tiny jQuery colorPicker uses colors.js from it's big brother colorPicker, it provides a clean and rich color model and API that enables flexible extending for programmers. (See colorPicker on GitHub for more details)

The following snipped shows how easy it is to make plugins: use for mobile

window.myColorPicker = $('input.color').colorPicker({
    buildCallback: function($elm) {
        this.$colorPatch = $elm.prepend('<div class="cp-disp">').find('.cp-disp');
        '.cp-disp {padding:10px; margin-bottom:6px; font-size:19px; height:20px; line-height:20px}' +
        '.cp-xy-slider {width:200px; height:200px;}' +
        '.cp-xy-cursor {width:16px; height:16px; border-width:2px; margin:-8px}' +
        '.cp-z-slider {height:200px; width:40px;}' +
        '.cp-z-cursor {border-width:8px; margin-top:-8px;}' +
        '.cp-alpha {height:40px;}' +
        '.cp-alpha-cursor {border-width:8px; margin-left:-8px;}',

    renderCallback: function($elm, toggled) {
        var colors = this.color.colors;

            backgroundColor: '#' + colors.HEX,
            color: colors.RGBLuminance > 0.22 ? '#222' : '#ddd'
        }).text(this.color.toString($elm._colorMode)); // $elm.val();
