Pickemall is a jQuery plugin which renders your webpage into a canvas image and then you can get the color in RGB or Hex from any page elements.

How to use it:

1. Add jQuery library and the jQuery Pickemall plugin to your html pages.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="pickemall.js"></script>

2. Create a trigger element to toggle the color picker.

<div class="pickemall">Get A Color</div>

3. Create an input field to place the result.

<input type="text" id="picked-color">

4. Initialize the plugin by calling the function on the trigger element like this:

$('.pickemall').pickemall({
  onChange: function(color) {
    $('#picked-color').val(color);
  },
});

5. Return the RGB color codes instead of HEX

$('.pickemall').pickemall({
  onChange: function(color) {
    $('#picked-color').val(color);
  },
  rgbResult: true,
});

6. Cache the canvas based document screenshot.

$('.pickemall').pickemall({
  onChange: function(color) {
    $('#picked-color').val(color);
  },
  screenCache: true
});

7. You can also pass the html2canvas' options to the plugin. Refer to html2canvas for more details.

$('.pickemall').pickemall({
  onChange: function(color) {
    $('#picked-color').val(color);
  },
  screenCache: true,
  html2canvas: {}
});

8. Modify or override the default CSS selectors.

$('.pickemall').pickemall({
  className: 'pickemall',
  buttonClass: 'pickemall-btn',
  activeClass: 'pickemall__on',
  cursorPicker: 'crosshair'
});
