Manipulating Color Data with phpColors

phpColors is an interesting library that makes it easy to work with colors in PHP. It can determine whether a color is dark or light, as well as darken or lighten a color incrementally, as well as generate complementary colors. It has functions that output hexadecimal or HSL representations of the color, or a gradient array.

It makes it super easy to do something like this:

using phpColors\Color;
$color = new Color("#eeeeee");

if ( $color->isLight() ) {
	$gradient = $color->makeGradient();
	// array( "light" => "the_light_color_hex", "dark" => "the_dark_color_hex" )
