No need to use "transparent" for a transparent background on your layers.

All you need to do is this to save a few keystrokes:

foo = new Layer
 backgroundColor: ""
 html: "No bg color."

I wish I would have figured this out a long long time ago. :D


Josh Ackerman

To add to this you can also do

LayerA = new Layer
backgroundColor: null

backgroundColor: false will also have the desired result

So will backgroundColor: "ThisIsTotallyNotAColorButLetsTypeLess"

Andrew Nalband

Also backgroundColor: "hatersGonnaHate" will work
