How so small?

There are two secrets that keep this lib especially small:

  1. Simplicity — only handles basic color manipulation functions
  2. Less branching in code — only support two color models as outputs, namely rgba and hsla

Why only rgba and hsla as outputs?

This lib was created with the use case of CSS-in-JS in mind. At the end of the day, all that matters is that the browser can understand the color string you gave it as a background-color.

Because only those two color models are supported, we don't have to add code to deal with optional alpha channels or converting to non-browser supported color models (e.g. CMYK).

We believe that this lib is sufficient for all of your color manipulation needs. If we're missing a feature, feel free to open an issue 😎.

Credits

Heavy credits goes to polished.js and sass. Much of the implementation of this lib is copied from polished!

Data Types In JavaScript

JavaScript data types are kept easy. While JavaScript data types are mostly similar to other programming languages; some of its data types can be unique. Here, we’ll outline the data types of JavaScript.

Introduction With Basic JavaScript

Introduction With Basic JavaScript - Unlike most programming languages, the JavaScript language has no concept of input or output. It is designed to run as a scripting language in a host environment, and it is up to the host environment to provide mechanisms for communicating with the outside world.

JavaScript Memory Management System

The main goal of this article is help to readers to understand that how memory management system performs in JavaScript. I will use a shorthand such as GC which means Garbage Collection. When the browsers use Javascript, they need any memory location to store objects, functions, and all other things. Let’s deep in dive that how things going to work in GC.
