The Spectrum No Hassle jQuery Colorpicker

I wasn't satisfied with the solutions available for colorpicking. Many of them included a ton of images, were hard to skin or customize, or were very large plugins.

Just include the needed CSS and JavaScript files, and you are ready to go!

We don't need no stinkin' images!
Nobody wants to add a bunch of code into their project. Spectrum is contained in two files, and both are careful not to mess with your existing code.

I wanted an option for the most basic use case, a polyfill for the input[type=color] HTML5 control. This mode needs to work without JavaScript enabled - and fallback to an input[type=text] like other HTML5 inputs.

If you don't want this behavior to happen, but still want to use spectrum elsewhere on the page, you can set $.fn.spectrum.load = false; right after loading the script file.

Just because you don't have to change anything to get it to work, doesn't mean you can't! It is easy to skin and customize the plugin with CSS, and there are a wide range of modes and options to explore.

Along with desktop browser support, I wanted a mobile colorpicker that was touch friendly, worked in iOS and Android, and used standards that maximize future mobile support.
