The No Hassle Colorpicker

I wanted a JavaScript colorpicker that didn’t require images, and that had an API that made sense to me as a developer who has worked with color in a number of applications. I had used existing plugins (which I was quite grateful for), but decided that I would make a smaller, simpler one.

See a demo and documentation Spectrum colorpicker project page.
