A module which augments the base dojo/_base/Color class with additional methods and named colors. This is not included in base Dojo by default for size reasons.


New methods are provided by this module.

 creates a greyscale color with an optional alpha
 get the rgb(a) array from css-style color declarations


In addition to providing some color-specific functionality, the dojo.colors module mixes all named css3 colors and SVG 1.0 variant spellings into dojo.Colors.named, such as aliceblue, azure and so on.

The module also adds a sanitize method to dojo.Color.prototype. This method ensures the Color object has the correct attributes, and are valid.
