Eye Catching Hue Changes

Did that stack just change its colour? I'm sure that it was yellow before, but now it is blue…
An Easter Egg from DeFliGra.

It's Easter Monday and Tommy has just placed an Easter Egg on his Stacks Page. Tivoli. And it's free.

Actually, this is a stack that I wanted a long time ago after seeing the effect on a web page. However, the developers that I spoke with didn't seem to be interested in the idea so, not wanting to bother myself with the necessary CSS, I abandoned the idea.
The page in question was a page consisting mainly of text and it very slowly – almost imperceptibly – changed colour as you were reading.

And this is exactly what Tivoli will do for your RapidWeaver text blocks.
Drop the stack onto a stacks page, drop in some text content and set the colours that you'd like.
When you visit Tommy's demo page, you'll find that the examples he provides are a bit stark. He has to emphasise the stack's possibilities.
But think "Pastel Colours" and the possibilities of Tivoli become more obvious.

A text bock with a pale yellow background imperceptibly morphs into pastel blue, whilst the text slowly changes from blue to teal. Your visitor's eyes will automatically be drawn to this block of text – your CTA can no longer be ignored, that button just yearns to be clicked!

Stack settings
Tivoli is a work in progress and Tommy promises future updates.
If you want more than one block to change colours, you'll need to set a unique ID for each stack.
Ani Flow has the cryptic settings Lunch Break and Running. To be perfectly honest, I've been unable to discern what the setting does.
Timing and Delay set the length of time that the colours are displayed and the transition time – the settings are in seconds. The higher the settings, the more subtle the effect, but be my guest, set the minimum of 1 in each case and have your CTA flash like a neon sign.
You can set the base colours of the stack and its text content and then you can set four colours for each to transition through.

Further, there is a setting for an Inner Shadow. If your text block is rather small – like the example above – I would advise against using a shadow; with any of the available settings (small, medium, large) it's rather imposing.
And last, but not least – Tommy's usual Custom CSS settings.

I like Easter Eggs – even when they are not made of chocolate!
