Gradient

Gradient tokens define one single gradient, such as linear black-to-white .

Example Token Payload

This is what the gradient payload looks like:

{
"id": string
"name": string
"description": string
"tokenType": "Gradient"
"origin": ItemOrigin | null
"value": {
"from": {
"x": double
"y": double
},
"to": {
"x": double
"y": double
},
"type": "Linear" | "Radial" | "Angular",
"aspectRatio": double
"stops": [Gradient Stop],
"referencedToken": Gradient | null
}
}

Gradient Stop

Gradient Stop represents one point where a new color is introduced within the gradient blend. Take the following example:

Gradient defined within Figma

This gradient has 3 stops - red at the beginning, transparent in the middle, and purple at the end. In Supernova, the gradient stop is defined like this:

{
"position": number
"color": {
"hex": string
"r": int (0-255),
"g": int (0-255),
"b": int (0-255),
"a": int (0-255),
"referencedToken": Color | null
}
}

Note that each gradient stop color can be referenced from a different color token. If that is the case, referencedToken will contain Color Token that is referenced.
