Promare Gradients standardizes the use of neon colors for web backgrounds. It's a tiny stylesheet library that comes with over 25,000 different neon background combinations.

Neon colors have a high chroma. When they are contrasted they psychologically grab the users' attention1. It's no wonder why neon signs have been used for call to actions.

Quick start

Here are some ways to start your own dramatic neon colored web presence:

  • Download the latest release
  • Clone the repo: git clone https://github.com/Ouxsoft/promare-gradients.git
  • Install with npm: npm i @ouxsoft/promare-gradients
  • Install with Composer: composer require ouxsoft/promare-gradients

Usage

Neon Colors

Promare Gradients features sixteen (16) base colors that were carefully chosen to embody neon lights:

green, ufo, lime, red, orange, yellow, absinthe, chartreuse, pink, magenta, plastic, purple, proton, blue, cyan, and grayscale.

<div class=".bg-blue">
    Call to Action
