type GradientKind = 'linear' | 'radial';

interface GradientConfig {
end?: number; // default 100
kind?: GradientKind; // linear
start?: number; // default 0
angle?: number; // default 0 (vertical)
colors: Color[];

interface Gradients {
[key: string]: GradientConfig;

type Gradient = keyof Gradients;


// Types are re-exported for ease of use by other packages
// like @morfeo/core, @morfeo/web or @morfeo/react
import { Gradient, Gradients } from '@morfeo/spec';


Using the CLI compose command:

// Remove this line to add the slice to all of your themes
export const themeName = 'My Theme Name';
// Optional if you name the file gradients.morfeo.ts
export const sliceName = 'gradients';

export default {
primary: {
colors: ['primary', 'secondary'],
secondary: {
colors: ['light', 'white'],

Or manually:

import { Gradients } from '@morfeo/spec';

const gradients: Gradients = {
primary: {
colors: ['primary', 'secondary'],
secondary: {
colors: ['light', 'white'],
import { gradients } from './gradients';

const myTheme = {

morfeo.setTheme('My Theme Name', myTheme);


In this table is shown the property you pass to morfeo.resolve, the actual CSS property or properties that will be generated, an example of usage, and the correspondent output:

bgGradientbackground{ bgGradient: "secondary"} {"background":"linear-gradient(180deg, #A3A3A3 0%, #ffffff 100%)"}
textGradientbackground, backgroundClip, textFillColor, -webkit-background-clip, -webkit-text-fill-color{ textGradient: "secondary"} {"background":"linear-gradient(180deg, #A3A3A3 0%, #ffffff 100%)","backgroundClip":"text","textFillColor":"transparent","-webkit-background-clip":"text","-webkit-text-fill-color":"transparent"}

Extend Slice with custom properties

If you're using typescript and you add custom colors to your theme configuration, you'll need to merge the default Gradients interface with your custom one. We suggest creating a declaration file (for example: morfeo.d.ts or types.d.ts) like the following one:

import { gradients } from './path/to/your/custom/gradients';

type MyGradients = typeof gradients;

declare module '@morfeo/spec' {
export interface Gradients extends MyGradients {}
