A Material Colors parsing library.

The colors_parser package provides string parsing operations for MaterialColor and MaterialAccentColor values with an optional indexed shade as well as black and white variants and even hex values.


Use pub to install this package. Add the following to your pubspec.yaml file.

  colors_parser: any

Then run pub install.

For more information, see the colors_parser package on pub.dev.


The colors_parser package was designed to be imported with a prefix, though you don't have to if you don't want to:

import 'package:colors_parser/colors_parser.dart' as cp;

The most common way to use the library is through the top-level functions. These parse Material Colors based on English language names. For example:


This calls the top-level parse() function to parse "blue" using English language names.

If you want to work with colors for a different language, you can create a ColorsParser and give it an explicit colors map:

var cpES = new cp.ColorsParser(colorsMap: ["azul", Colors.blue]);

This will parse "azul" using the supplied Spanish language colors map.
