Releasing IQ::Color

At SonicIQ we have a number of RubyGems used internally that we haven’t found time to open-source yet i.e. cleanup the documentation and get into state that people can find useful. I’m going to make it my mission to get some of these out there which first involves releasing some of the smaller Gems that the larger ones depend on.

IQ::Color is a really simple Gem for converting colour values to and from CSS(3) notation, this is used by a couple of our larger Gems but I can see it being of use on it’s own. A simple example:


color1 = IQ::Color.RGB.new(127, 127, 255)
color1.to_css #=> "#7f7fff"

color2 = IQ::Color.from_css('rgba(127,127,255,0.4)')
color2.red    #=> 127
color2.green  #=> 127
color2.blue   #=> 255
color2.alpha  #=> 0.4
color2.to_css #=> "rgba(127,127,255,0.4)"
