HSLColor class

A color represented using alpha, hue, saturation, and lightness.

An HSLColor is represented in a parameter space that's based up human perception of colored light. The representation is useful for some color computations (e.g., combining colors of light), because interpolation and picking of colors as red, green, and blue channels doesn't always produce intuitive results.

HSL is a perceptual color model, placing fully saturated colors around a circle (conceptually) at a lightness of ​0.5, with a lightness of 0.0 being completely black, and a lightness of 1.0 being completely white. As the lightness increases or decreases from 0.5, the apparent saturation decreases proportionally (even though the saturation parameter hasn't changed).

alpha double
Alpha, from 0.0 to 1.0. The describes the transparency of the color. A value of 0.0 is fully transparent, and 1.0 is fully opaque.
hashCode int
The hash code for this object. [...]

hue double
Hue, from 0.0 to 360.0. Describes which color of the spectrum is represented. A value of 0.0 represents red, as does 360.0. Values in between go through all the hues representable in RGB. You can think of this as selecting which color filter is placed over a light.
lightness double
Lightness, from 0.0 to 1.0. The lightness of a color describes how bright a color is. A value of 0.0 indicates black, and 1.0 indicates white. You can think of this as the intensity of the light behind the filter. As the lightness approaches 0.5, the colors get brighter and appear more saturated, and over 0.5, the colors start to become less saturated and approach white at 1.0.
saturation double
Saturation, from 0.0 to 1.0. This describes how colorful the color is. 0.0 implies a shade of grey (i.e. no pigment), and 1.0 implies a color as vibrant as that hue gets. You can think of this as the purity of the color filter over the light.
