🎨 Color Theme Switcher Using JavaScript.

  • In this, we're going to see how you can change the theme of your website to any color you want using JavaScript. This can be considered as a mini-project if you're learning JavaScript. It teaches you DOM concepts and how to change styling of CSS through JavaScript.

    Here's a preview: 6f1c2bqzklgjyk8l3paf.gif

  • Step - 1: First Create project files - Index.html, Style.css and Script.js.
  • Step - 2: Then Copy the below HTML code and paste it into your code editor.

Index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en" >
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <title>CodePen - Color Change Buttons</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">

</head>
<body>

<nav class="menu">
    <a href="#" class="menu__item menu__item--yellow " data-background="e4a924">
    </a>
    <a href="#" class="menu__item menu__item--red" data-background="c92142">  
    </a>
    <a href="#" class="menu__item menu__item--green" data-background="37b983">
    </a>
    <a href="#" class="menu__item menu__item--purple" data-background="9f32b8">
    </a>
  </nav>

  <script  src="script.js"></script>

</body>
</html>
  • Here we have used tag to choose various colors for the theme. We have used an attribute "data-background" to specify the default background of the anchor tags.

  • Step - 3: After creating html file next is the use CSS code for styling.

Style.css

html {
  height: 100%;
  font-size: 1.3vw;
}
body {
  height: 100%;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  background-color: #f6f7fc;
  transition: background-color 0.55s;
  will-change: background-color;
  margin: 0;
}
.menu__item {
  width: 3.5rem;
  height: 3.5rem;
  border-radius: 12.5rem;
  display: inline-block;
  margin-left: 2.1rem;
  animation-name: close;
  animation-duration: 0s;
  will-change: width background-color;
  transition: background 0.55s;
  vertical-align: top;
  display: inline-flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  box-shadow: 0px 5px rgba(0,0,0, 0.3);
}

.menu__item:first-child {
  margin-left: 0;
  background: #fabe2b;
}
.menu__item:nth-child(2){
  background: #f43768;
}
.menu__item:nth-child(3){
  background: #45e1a3;
}
.menu__item:nth-child(4){
  background: #c152da;
}
.menu__item--animate {
  animation-duration: 0.5s;
}
.menu__item--active {
  width: 17rem;
  animation-name: open;
}

.menu__item--active.menu__item--yellow { background: #fabe2b; }
.menu__item--active.menu__item--red { background: #f43768; }
.menu__item--active.menu__item--green { background: #45e1a3; }
.menu__item--active.menu__item--purple { background: #c152da; }
  • Step - 4: Below is the JavaScript code which is the most important part in this Theme changer.
  • We declared a const menuItems which will get the tag attributes of our tags.
  • Then in that const we store all the mouse event listener and at the same time calling the buttonClick() method which assigns the specified color to the background.

Script.js

const menuItems = document.querySelectorAll('.menu__item');

for (var i = 0; i < menuItems.length; i++) {
  menuItems[i].addEventListener('click', buttonClick);
}

function buttonClick() {
  if (!this.classList.contains('menu__item--active')) {
    document.body.style.backgroundColor = `#${this.getAttribute('data-background')}`;
  }
}

And that's it. You're done.
