Color Cycle is a jQuery plugin used to smoothly and continuously cycle through an array of predefined background colors of a specific container. Great for creating a nice color transition effect for any element on the webpage.

How to use it:

1. Load the needed jQuery and jQuery UI JavaScript libraries in the webpage.

<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js"></script>
<script src="//code.jquery.com/ui/1.11.4/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

2. Download the color cycle plugin and load the JavaScript file jquery.colorcycle.min.js after jQuery library.

<script src="jquery.colorcycle.min.js"></script>

3. Attach the function colorCycle() to the element you want to animate the background colors.

$('SELECTOR').colorCycle();

4. Change the default colors and animation options.

$('SELECTOR').colorCycle({

  // an array of background colors
  colors: ['#ff0000', '#ff6600', '#ff9900', '#ffcc00', '#ffff00', '#ccff00', '#99ff00', '#66ff00', '#00ff66', '#00ff99', '#00ffcc', '#00ffff', '#00ccff', '#0099ff', '#0066ff', '#0033ff', '#0000ff', '#3300ff', '#6600ff', '#9900ff', '#cc00ff', '#ff00ff', '#ff00cc', '#ff0099', '#ff0066'],

  // starting and end range for animation time in milliseconds
  animationStartRange: 1000,
  animationEndRange: 2000,

  // starting and end range for loop time in milliseconds.
  loopStartRange: 1000,
  loopEndRange: 4000
  
});
