Chameleon from Doobox is a stack for creating CSS gradient backgrounds for RapidWeaver. The gradients are probably different to anything you might imagine …
… you would probably imagine a gradient from white to teal as being white at the top of the screen and teal at the bottom of the screen and if the gradient stretches over the length of two, or three screen heights?
Chameleon's gradients are very special because at any one time, the screen will only display one flat colour. If the top of the gradient is white and you are at the top of the screen, your whole screen will be white. Scroll down the screen and Chameleon will calculate the colour of the screen from the screen's position in relation to the gradient and will gradually and almost imperceptibly change to – using our example – teal.
Chameleon hast just two settings: Starting Colour and Ending Colour.
You can drop as many stacks as you wish into Chameleon, but for the gradient to become visible, the content should extend below the fold – the further, the better. If your content is shorter than, or the same as the screen height, Chameleon only produces a single flat colour – that of the Starting Colour.
With a subtle gradient you will hardly notice that the background colour has changed, but even with a daring change from blue to pink, the effect is never shocking. The effect has to be seen, to be fully appreciated. Visit
