It's wonderful that you want to take care of multi-color gradients. It's
a complex issue. The members here on the mailing list have very
different knowledge and skills. So don't hesitate to ask here on the
list and maybe learn about completely different aspects.
For example, I work with the ODF file format. From this point of view
you should know that the ODF file format has two completely different
One is the gradient defined by the element <draw:gradient>. It is
implemented in LibreOffice, and the user interface belongs to this
gradient. It allows only two colors, but has very different shapes of
The other one is the gradient defined by the elements
<svg:linearGradient> and <svg:radialGradient>. It allows multiple
colors, but is not implemented yet.
For all solutions, not only internal handling and user interface have to
be considered, but also how the style information can be stored in the file.
I wish you every success in your work.
