This works similarly to the standard radial gradients as described by `radial-gradient()`, but it automatically repeats the color stops infinitely in both directions, with their positions shifted by multiples of the difference between the last color stop's position and the first one's position.

## Syntax

```Definition of the ending shape
repeating-radial-gradient( circle radius, … )         /* Concentrinc centered circles of the given length. It can't be in %. */
repeating-radial-gradient( ellipse x-axis y-axis, … ) /* The two semi-major axis are given, horizontal, then vertical */

Definition of the position of the shape

Definition of the color stops

```

### Values

`<position>`
A `<position>`, interpreted in the same way as `background-position` or `transform-origin`. If omitted, the default is `center`.
<`angle`>
An angle establishing the gradient line, which extends from the starting point at this angle; this is `0deg` by default.
`<shape>`
The gradient's shape. This is one of `circle` (meaning that the gradient's shape is a circle with constant radius) or `ellipse` (meaning that the shape is an axis-aligned ellipse). The default value is `ellipse`.
`<size>`
The size of the gradient. This is one of the Size constants listed below.
`<color-stop>`
Representing a fixed color at a precise position, this value is composed by a `<color>` value, followed by an optional stop position (either a `<percentage>` or a `<length>` along the virtual gradient ray). A percentage of `0%`, or a length of `0`, represents the center of the gradient, the value `100%` the intersection of the ending shape with the virtual gradient ray. Percentage values in-between. are linearily positioned on the gradient ray.
`<extent-keyword>`
Are keywords describing how big the ending shape must be. The possible keywords are:
Constant Description
`closest-side` The gradient's ending shape meets the side of the box closest to its center (for circles) or meets both the vertical and horizontal sides closest to the center (for ellipses).
`closest-corner` The gradient's ending shape is sized so it exactly meets the closest corner of the box from its center.
`farthest-side` Similar to closest-side, except the ending shape is sized to meet the side of the box farthest from its center (or vertical and horizontal sides).
`farthest-corner` The gradient's ending shape is sized so it exactly meets the farthest corner of the box from its center.
Early drafts were defining to other keywords, `cover` and `contain`, synonyms of the standard `farthest-corner` and `closest-side` respectively. Do exclusively use the standard keyword as some implementations have dropped to older variants.

### Formal syntax

```repeating-radial-gradient(
[[ circle  || <length> ]                     [at <position>]? , |
[ ellipse || [<length> | <percentage> ]{2}] [at <position>]? , |
[[ circle | ellipse ] || <extent-keyword> ] [at <position>]? , |
at <position>   ,    <color-stop> [ , <color-stop> ]+ )
\---------------------------------------------------------------/\--------------------------------/
Contour, size and position of the ending shape               List of color stops

where <extent-keyword> = closest-corner | closest-side | farthest-corner | farthest-side
and` <color-stop> = <color> [ <percentage> | <length> ]?````

## Description

This works similarly to the standard radial gradients as described by `radial-gradient()`, but it automatically repeats the color stops infinitely in both directions, with their positions shifted by multiples of the difference between the last color stop's position and the first one's position.

Like any other gradient, a repeating CSS radial gradient is not a CSS `<color>` but an image with no intrinsic dimensions; that is, it has no natural or preferred size, nor ratio. Its concrete size will match the one of the element it applies to.

[1] Before Firefox 36, Gecko didn't apply gradient on the pre-multiplied color space, leading to shade of grey unexpectedly appearing when used with transparency. Since Firefox 42, the prefixed version of gradients can be disabled by setting `layout.css.prefixes.gradients` to `false`.

In addition to the unprefixed support, Gecko 44.0 (Firefox 44.0 / Thunderbird 44.0 / SeaMonkey 2.41) added support for a `-webkit` prefixed version of the function for web compatibility reasons behind the preference `layout.css.prefixes.webkit`, defaulting to `false`. Since Gecko 49.0 (Firefox 49.0 / Thunderbird 49.0 / SeaMonkey 2.46) the preference defaults to `true`.

## Size constants

Constant Description
`closest-side` The gradient's shape meets the side of the box closest to its center (for circles) or meets both the vertical and horizontal sides closest to the center (for ellipses).
`closest-corner` The gradient's shape is sized so it exactly meets the closest corner of the box from its center.
`farthest-side` Similar to closest-side, except the shape is sized to meet the side of the box farthest from its center (or vertical and horizontal sides).
`farthest-corner` The gradient's shape is sized so it exactly meets the farthest corner of the box from its center.
`contain` A synonym for `closest-side`.
`cover` A synonym for `farthest-corner`.

## Usage

Radial gradients also run along an axis. At each end point of the axis, a radius is specified. This can be imagined as creating two "circles", where for each circle the center is specified by the point and the radius is specified by the radius length. The gradient runs outwards from the circumference of the inner circle to the circumference of the outer circle.

### Black & white

`<div id="grad1">Black white</div>`
```div {
display: block;
width: 50%;
height: 80px;
border-color: #000000;
}
color: white;
border: 1px solid black;
height:5.5em;
}
```

`background: repeating-radial-gradient(black, black 5px, white 5px, white 10px);`

### Farthest-corner

`<div id="grad1">Farthest-corner</div>`
```div {
display: block;
width: 50%;
height: 80px;
border-color: #000000;
}
`background: repeating-radial-gradient(ellipse farthest-corner, red, black 5%, blue 5%, green 10%);`
