Meet Gradiator, a free CSS3 gradients generator
Folks from caffeinatedco.de released Gradiator, a rather handy free CSS3 gradients generator that is quite fun to use and works on Linux.
This is a fairly new project: first revision was committed to public repository mere two weeks ago. Developers follow the recent trend and implement the UI in HTML5 which is rendered with Webkit. The outcome is (not) surprisingly neat:
The feature set is rather basic so far: adding and removing color stops (click anywhere to add, select and click Remove button to remove), dragging color stops around, setting color for color stops (by clicking the part of the info box hat shows the HEX value) and choosing direction.
If you go for settings, you can choose what kind of output you need.
The default output predictably looks like this:
Jono says they are working on gradient saving/editing at the moment, as well as a bunch of new features including radial gradients and specifying the exact angle of the gradient.
The homepage somewhat misleadingly states that Gradiator is the only CSS3 gradients app for Linux. Actually, for last couple of years GIMP 2.7.x has been shipped with a Python extension that does exactly that, even though it saves twice as little CSS code variants and surely cannot be qualified as a purely gradients app :).
Right now Gradiator is available as source code tarball and a build for Ubuntu. Reportedly Windows and Mac builds are in works.
