  • react-mui-color

    A Material UI-based color picker with options for a predefined picker or a free picker

    While working on reducing FormBlob's dependencies and browser package size, I wrote a lightweight version of a colour picker to replace react-color. I've published it as the open source library react-mui-color, though that has a dependency on Material UI.

  • react-color-palette

    🎨 Lightweight Color Picker component for React.

    Again, the complete code can be found here. This is an implementation with no dependencies beyond React, but you can always use your favourite UI libraries to replace the views. I would also like to credit react-color-palette and this css-tricks article as I used them as reference for the colour map implementation and colour conversions methods.
