Quicksettings.js: What is it?

Quicksettings.js is a JavaScript library that allows you to create custom UI settings for your web application or website. It offers a simple and intuitive way to create a user interface for changing variables or settings, without having to create complex HTML and CSS elements. The library offers a wide range of functionality such as buttons, sliders, color pickers, and more.

How to use Quicksettings.js

The easiest way to get started with Quicksettings.js is to download the library from the official website, or include it as a script tag in your HTML file. Once you have added the script, you can start creating your settings by calling the QuickSettings function and passing in an object that describes the settings you want to create.

// Example code for creating a simple slider
var settings = QuickSettings.create(10, 10, "My Settings");

// Add a range slider with min value 0, max value 100, default value of 50, and a step of 1
settings.addRange("My Slider", 0, 100, 50, 1, function(value) {
    console.log("Slider value changed to: " + value);

The above code would create a settings panel at position (10, 10) with the title "My Settings". A range slider called "My Slider" would also be created with a minimum value of 0 and maximum value of 100. The default value is set to 50 and the step size is set to 1. When the slider value is changed, a callback function is called and the new value is passed as an argument.

Multiple ways to create UI elements

Quicksettings.js offers several ways to create UI elements such as buttons, sliders, and color pickers. You can add these elements using the addButton, addRange, and addColor functions respectively. Each of these functions takes a similar set of parameters but offers different functionality.

Customizing the appearance of UI elements

Quicksettings.js also allows you to customize the appearance of your UI elements by providing a CSS class name as a parameter. This allows you to use your own custom CSS styles to make your settings panel look just the way you want it to.

Overall, Quicksettings.js is a powerful and flexible tool that can help you create custom UI settings for your web application or website. By using this library, you can save a lot of time and effort that would otherwise be spent on creating complex HTML and CSS elements.
