I try to find the way Plotly parses CSS named colors. My intention is to create a quick function that create a rgba version of the underlying rgb value of those colors.
Here is my idea :
- my func get a color name :
- it translates the name into rgb
' rgb(184, 134, 11)'← this is where I need help
- create a semi-transparent version :
' rgba(184, 134, 11, 0.5)'
- feed another fonction that can plot with plain color and semi-transparent version
I’m sure i can find another library to do this, but since Plotly does the same thing under the hood it would be more convenient. I read the color module code and didn’t find anything. Does anyone have any experience with that ?
Thank you !
