A utility function to get the shade of a palette color.


getPaletteColor(color, shade)(props)


const Component = styled.div`
  color: ${getPaletteColor('primary.base')};


colorShadeStringThe full palette color and shade expressed in dot notation, example primary.base.
colorStringThe palette color, example primary.
shadeStringThe shade of the palette color, example base.
propsObjectThe props passed to the component, must contain a theme prop.


Full palette color and shade

const StaticDemo = styled.div`
  color: ${getPaletteColor('primary.base')};
Static color
<StaticDemo>Static color</StaticDemo>

Pass a full palette color and shade to return a color that isn't influenced by props. Accepts dot notation or a color and shade argument getPaletteColor('primary', 'base').

Palette color driven from color prop

const ShadeDemo = styled.div`
  color: ${getPaletteColor('base')};
Primary dark
Legacy orange
Hex color
<ShadeDemo color="primary">Primary</ShadeDemo>
<ShadeDemo color="primary.dark">Primary dark</ShadeDemo>
<ShadeDemo color="orange">Legacy orange</ShadeDemo>
<ShadeDemo color="#007aff">Hex color</ShadeDemo>

If you only pass a shade to the function it assumes that a palette color will be passed in through a color prop. This is useful for components who's color will be driven by a parent consumer. If the value of the color prop happens to be a legacy color (for example color="orange"), the legacy color will be returned. If the value of the color prop is anything else it will also be returned.

Palette color driven from other prop

const ShadeOtherDemo = styled.div`
  background-color: ${props => getPaletteColor(props.bgColor, 'base')(props)};
Primary dark
Legacy orange
Hex color
<ShadeOtherDemo bgColor="primary">Primary</ShadeOtherDemo>
<ShadeOtherDemo bgColor="primary.dark">Primary dark</ShadeOtherDemo>
<ShadeOtherDemo bgColor="orange">Legacy orange</ShadeOtherDemo>
<ShadeOtherDemo bgColor="#007aff">Hex color</ShadeOtherDemo>

You can also apply the utility to use a different prop to drive color, or in the above example, background-color.
