Completion Instructions

Functionality to be added

The app must have the following functionalities

  • Initially, the selected gradient direction should be the first value in the given gradientDirectionsList

  • The initial values for the HTML input elements with type color should be #8ae323 and #014f7b respectively

  • When the values are provided for both the input elements with type color, then provided values should be the text content for the respective paragraph elements

  • When the Generate button is clicked after selecting the direction and picking the colors, the background of the app should have a linear gradient with the selected direction and colors provided

  • The GradientGenerator component will consist gradientDirectionsList. It consists of a list of gradient directions objects with the following properties in each gradient directions object

    Key Data Type
    directionId String
    value String
    displayText string
Components Structure


Implementation Files

Use these files to complete the implementation:

  • src/components/GradientGenerator/index.js
  • src/components/GradientGenerator/styledComponents.js
  • src/components/GradientDirectionItem/index.js
  • src/components/GradientDirectionItem/styledComponents.js

Quick Tips

Click to view

  • The HTML input element with the type color is designed for the user to select the color from a color picker.

    <input type="color" />
  • You can use the CSS opacity property to set the degree of transparency of an element. It has a value in the range of 0 to 1 inclusive.

     opacity: 0.5;

Important Note

The following instructions are required for the tests to pass

  • The HTML container element for the linear gradient values are applied should have data-testid as gradientGenerator
  • When a gradient direction button is active then the button should have the CSS property opacity with the value 1
  • When a gradient direction button is inactive then the button should have the CSS property opacity with the value 0.5

Things to Keep in Mind

  • All components you implement should go in the src/components directory.
  • Don’t change the component folder names as those are the files being imported into the tests.
  • Do not remove the pre-filled code
