Make colorpicker keyboard-friendly

See original GitHub issue

Now that we can open with Ctrl-K it would be nice if the whole component could be usable with just the keyboard.

I suggest:

  • make it possible to tab between inputs. (currently, if I’m in RGB mode and press tab, it changes the mode and blurs the input 😦
  • make the sliders focusable and use arrow keys to change value. Maybe even shift+arrow for fine adjustment
  • make the gradient focusable and editable with keyboard.
  • listen for Esc and Enter and use those to close dialog and return focus to CM.

Thanks. 😃

I am refactoring for keyboard features.

Tab key is change selection area. Arrow keys is change real value for selection area.

The “HEX” mode works great if you have the outer wrapper focused, but if you focus the hex input, the movement and color selection is awkward.
