Documentation

All the exported functions accept 2 parameters:

  • colorString - any valid CSS color string
  • returnRgb optional
    • if true, then an object containing RGB values is returned
    • if false or not passed, then a hex string is returned

blinder.protanomaly(colorString, returnRgb)

Part of the “Anomalous Trichromat” family of color blindness. The viewer sees low amounts of red.

Examples:

blinder.protanomaly("#42dead");
// result: "#9dcea5"
blinder.protanomaly("#42dead", false);
// result: "#9dcea5"
blinder.protanomaly("#42dead", true);
// result: {"R":156.81027381701807,"G":205.52274401697787,"B":164.8656701007824}

blinder.protanopia(colorString, returnRgb)

Part of the “Dichromat” family of color blindness. The viewer sees no red.

Examples:

blinder.protanopia("#42dead");
// result: "#d1c4a0"
blinder.protanopia("#42dead", false);
// result: "#d1c4a0"
