  • Configurable color variables

How to use it:

1. Load the stylesheet material-background-styles.css in the header and the script material-background-styles.js at the bottom of the html page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="material-background-styles.css">
<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script>
<script src="material-background-scripts.js"></script>

2. Create a container element where you want to generate a random Material Design background.

<div id="material-background">
</div>

materialBackground.start();
