Recently i was working on a small project of making a digital clock chrome extension. I wanted to keep the design as minimal as possible and also reduce the size of the extension. So instead of regular BORING backgrounds, i tried to use CSS gradients to see if i could come up with something.
Tried every possible way and the gradients were bad. So as a last resort i googled to see if i could have a multi-colored CSS gradient without actually having a transition from color to color. Then i stumbled upon this post:
The simple logic here is that we stop the first color at x% and start the second color at x% or <x%. This removes the gradient from the linear-gradient and defines a clear edge between both colors giving the background a multi-colored-material effect. You can check out more in the post.
