ColorPanel is a lightweight jQuery theme switcher used to create a sticky color panel that allows the users to change the theme/skin of your webpage by switching the style sheets. The plugin will re-render the styles of your webpage with fade-in / fade-out animations when the theme has been changed.

How to use it:

1. Load the jQuery ColorPanel plugin's stylesheet and a theme CSS of your choice in the head section of the html document.

<link href="dist/jquery.colorpanel.css" rel="stylesheet">
<link href="bs4/bootstrap.css" id="cpswitch" rel="stylesheet">

2. Load jQuery library and the jQuery ColorPanel plugin's script at the end of the html document.

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

3. The required markup structure for the color panel.

<div id="colorPanel" class="colorPanel">
  <a id="cpToggle" href="#"></a>
  <ul></ul>
</div>

4. Initialize the plugin and specify the paths to the style sheets you want to switch between.

$('#colorPanel').ColorPanel({
  colors: {
    '#4B77BE': 'bs4/bootstrap.css', 
    '#16a085': 'bs3/bootstrap.css'
  }
});

5. Config the plugin by override the following settings.

$('#colorPanel').ColorPanel({

  // ID of your style sheet
  styleSheet: '#cpswitch', 

  // themes
  colors: {
    '#1abc9c': 'skins/default.css', 
    '#2980b9': 'skins/blue.css', 
    '#c0392b': 'skins/red.css'
  }, 

  // classname for the color anchor
  linkClass: 'linka', 

  // fade in a specified container
  animateContainer: false

});
