Designed to scan an image’s color palette and pinpoint its dominant hue, this plugin gets to work the moment your page loads. It identifies the dominant color and applies it to the parent element of the image. To see it in action, check out the following gif:
How to Get Started
AdaptiveBackgrounds.js relies on the jQuery library. Although it’s an extension of RGBaster, there’s no need to include that separately. You can download the plugin file from its GitHub repository.
Next, include the necessary files in your project as shown below:
Implementing the Dominant Color
To apply the dominant color to an element, the image should be nested within it. Add the
data-adaptive-background attribute to the
img tag as shown:
<div class='wrapper'> <img id="img" src="images/double-arch.jpg" data-adaptive-background='1'> </div>
If you place the
img directly within the
body tag, the entire body will adopt the dominant color.
And there you have itÃ¢ÂÂthe dominant color is now applied to the image.
While AdaptiveBackgrounds.js provides a static color, you might want to add more vibrancy to your background for a more captivating result. For further inspiration and settings, visit the AdaptiveBackgrounds.js documentation page.
