I am trying to adjust the alpha value of a linear gradient based off the lightness of a base color, I also would like to keep the alpha value between a certain range [0.05 - 0.35].
So for example when the base color is black (0% lightness) I would like the alpha value of the gradient to be 0.05 but with a color like Fuschia with 100% lightness I want the alpha to be 0.35.
I am using a Sass function to get the lightness value of the base color ( $lightnessFactor: lightness($base-color) ) When I try and use this value in the alpha for the gradient I receive an error message.
> Syntax error: $alpha: Amount -9.83843% must be between -1 and 1 for ‘adjust-color’
So couple issues:
1. How to normalize a value within a given range (don’t think the equation I am using really works)
2. Convert lightness value into something the gradient will accept as a parameter
