[ bsd3, graphics, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

Prizm can convert between many different color representations; notably the sRGB and CIE representations. Future versions will implementations for mutating colors as well.

Readme for prizm-

[back to package description]


Prizm is a haskell library for dealing with colors. Please contribute!

My inspiration for writing this was Sass and Bourbon, both implement interesting color handling functions for use in stylesheets and I wanted the same thing for use in Clay (also for Bentonite).

Supported Algorithms

  • sRGB -> CIE XYZ
  • CIE XYZ -> sRGB



Implementation of conversions for all the CIE color representations and a converter for HEX to SRGB (trivial).


Implementations for

  • color mixing
  • tint / shade
  • darken / lighten
  • hue
  • saturation
  • inversion
