react-colour-wheel

Quick-start guide

Installation

npm install react-colour-wheel
yarn add react-colour-wheel

...and wherever you need the component:

import ColourWheel from 'react-colour-wheel'

Start by giving your ColourWheel a radius, lineWidth, and utilise the rgb-value sent through onColourSelected:

<ColourWheel
  radius={200}
  lineWidth={50}
  onColourSelected={(rgb) => this.setState({ selectedColour: rgb })}
/>

However, a more typical implementation might look like:

<ColourWheel
  radius={200}
  padding={10}
  lineWidth={50}
  onColourSelected={(rgb) => this.setState({ rgb })}
  onRef={ref => (this.colourWheel = ref)}
  spacers={{
    colour: '#FFFFFF',
    shadowColour: 'grey',
    shadowBlur: 5
  }}
  preset
  presetColour={this.state.rgb}
  animated
/>

Customisation

The ColourWheel component has many options available for customisation through props:

radius

Customise the radius of the ColourWheel, all the way to the outer-edge.

  • pixels, px
  • propTypes: number, isRequired

radius={200}


lineWidth

Customise the width of the outer- and inner-wheels.

  • pixels, px
  • propTypes: number, isRequired
    lineWidth={50}

onColourSelected

Method that returns an rgb-value; typical use case might be to setState({ rgb }) on the parent-component.

  • propTypes: func

onColourSelected={(rgb) => ... )}


padding

Sets the space between the outer-wheel, inner-wheel, and the center-circle.

  • pixels, px
  • propTypes: number

padding={10}


spacers

Allows you to customise the styling of the padding that was set:

  • Need to specify an object with colour, shadowColour, and shadowBlur properties.
  • propTypes: object
  spacers={{
    colour: '#FFFFFF',
    shadowColour: 'grey',
    shadowBlur: 5
  }}

colours

Allows you to define an array of colours that will populate the outer-wheel of the colour-wheel.

  • By default, an array of 16 hex-strings is provided to help you get started.
  • colours accepts hex-strings, rgb-strings & objects, names and other variations.
  • propTypes: array
