Tutorials JS Color Pickers are so 2011

Posted By Andreas Filed under Tutorials

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 input to color, like this: <input type="color" name="background_color">.

That's it!
