Stage 1: Definition

1. Feature overview

Choosing colors visually makes good sense, and a color picker would be a nice addition to our tools that let users change colors.

2. Users & use cases


3. Dependencies


4. Requirements

  1. Choose color in common color wheel style
  2. be able to convert between color units
  3. integration with the Style Editor and Style Inspector


  1. Palette displayed from colors on the current page
  2. have a pane for creating gradients


It is not necessary that this color picker be the same as the one used for input type="color".

Stage 2: Design

5. Functional specification

This Color Picker vs. type="color"

HTML5 defines an input type of "color" which can provide the user with a color picker. bug 547004 is for implementing this HTML5 element.

Using this work will give us a quick way to choose a color, but not necessarily the best way.

Non-developer users just want to pick a color visually. Developers may want to be able to paste in color values from elsewhere or quickly pick from the colors already on the page.
