In CSS, you can smoothly make transitions between two or more colors. CSS has two types of gradients:
- Linear gradient: It goes down/up/left/right/diagonally and makes smooth transitions of colors. To make a linear transition you first have to choose two color stops. Color stops are the color among which you want to make the transitions. You can also select a starting point and a direction(an angle) for the transition.
background-image: linear-gradient(direction, color-stop1, color-stop2, …);
- Radial gradient: It is defined by the center. Here also you have to specify at least two color spots.
background-image: radial-gradient(shape size at position, start-color, ...);
