This is a jQuery/Bootstrap plugin that attaches a Google Doc style color picker to any element within the document.

With this plugin, your users can pick a color from a predefined palette popup based on Bootstrap 4's popover component.

How to use it:

1. Load the needed jQuery library and Bootstrap 4 framework in the HTML.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap.min.css" />
<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="popper.min.js"></script>
<script src="bootstrap.min.js"></script>

2. Load the Bootstrap 4 Color Palette plugin's files.

<!-- Stylesheet -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="dist/bcp.min.css" />
<!-- JavaScript -->
<script src="dist/bcp.min.js"></script>

3. Load the preset palette in the HTML.

<script src="dist/bcp.en.js"></script>

4. Attach the color picker to a specific element. That's it.

$('.example').bcp();

5. You can also define the colors for the palette in the JavaScript:

$('.example').bcp({
  color: [{
    "#000000": "Black",
    "#434343": "Dark grey 4",
    "#666666": "Dark grey 3",
    "#999999": "Dark grey 2",
    "#b7b7b7": "Dark grey 1",
    "#cccccc": "grey",
    "#d9d9d9": "Light grey 1",
    "#efefef": "Light grey 2",
    "#f3f3f3": "Light grey 3",
    "#ffffff": "White"
  }]
});

6. Customize the rendering template of the color picker.

$('.example').bcp({
  template: '<div class="popover bcp-popover" role="tooltip"><div class="arrow"></div><h3 class="popover-header"></h3><div class="popover-body"></div></div>'
});

7. Customize the rendering template of the color picker.

$('.example').bcp({
  template: '<div class="popover bcp-popover" role="tooltip"><div class="arrow"></div><h3 class="popover-header"></h3><div class="popover-body"></div></div>'
});

8. Customize the function used to generate the color picker.

$('.example').bcp({
  body: (colors) => {
    var content = colors.map(row => {
        let tmp = '';

        for (var color in row) {
            let cl = isColorDark(color) ? 'bcp-dark' : 'bcp-light';
            tmp += `<div class="bcp-color ${cl}" style="background-color: ${color};" data-color="${color}" title="${row[color]}"></div>`;
        }

        return `<div class="bcp-row">${tmp}</div>`;
    }).join('');

    return `<div class="bcp-content">${content}</div>`;
  }
});

9. Fire an event each time the color changed.

$('.example').on('pcb.refresh', function (e) {
  let color = $(this).bcp('color');
  if (color.value) {
    $(this).css({
      backgroundColor: color.value,
      borderColor: color.value,
      color: color.dark ? '#fff' : '#000'
    });
  }
});

10. Fire an event each time a color is selected.

$('.example').on('pcb.selected', function (e) {
  let color = $(this).bcp('color');
  if (color.value) {
    $.post('url', color);
  }
});

11. Set/get the color.

// set color
$('.example').bcp('color', '#ffffff');

// get color
$('.example').bcp('color');
