<input type="text" name="demo" 
       data-palette='[{"primary": "#E91E63"},{"primary_dark": "#C2185B"},{"primary_light": "#F8BBD0"},{"accent": "#CDDC39"},{"primary_text": "#212121"},{"secondary_text": "#727272"},{"divider": "#B6B6B6"}]' 

3. Include jQuery library and the jQuery Palette Color Picker plugin at the end of the document.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="src/palette-color-picker.js"></script>

4. Initialize the color picker.
