I once built a jQuery color picker plug-in for use on a project from like 10 years ago.
To this day I get hits on it even though there are much better alternatives out there.
Anyway, I'm here to tell you you don't need no 2011 era jQuery color picker plug-in because this is 2015 and we can simply tell the browser that we want a color and it shall abide.
All you do is set the
type of your
color, like this:
<input type="color" name="background_color">.
