Has anyone gotten the Vanderlee jQuery color picker to work with WordPress? I'm evaluating color pickers with alpha support for my theme and this one just refuses to work. https://github.com/vanderlee/colorpicker

Originally I must have been loading the script too early because it was throwing this error:

TypeError: 'undefined' is not a function (evaluating '$('.my-color').colorpicker()')

I loaded the script in the footer and that error disappeared but now I'm getting this error:

TypeError: 'undefined' is not a function (evaluating '$('.ui-colorpicker-ok', part).button()')

The page loads fine by itself but the minute you click in a color field, that error appears and the HTML for the picker is loaded at the very end of the document.

This is on a WP 3.7.1 installation so it's jQuery 1.10.2. I saw a similar problem listed in the issues list at https://github.com/vanderlee/colorpicker/pull/60 but that was fixed in the latest version 1.0.5.

My scripts are enqueued like this:

wp_enqueue_script( 'vancolor', CHILD_URL.'/lib/js/colorpicker/jquery.colorpicker.js', '', '', TRUE );
wp_enqueue_script( 'my-admin-script', CHILD_URL.'/lib/js/admin.js', array( 'media-upload','thickbox' ), '', TRUE );

And in my admin.js file, I'm initializing the color picker like this:

jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    alpha: true,

My HTML is something like this:

<input type="text" class="my-color" />

This one has stumped me and there's very little documentation in the wild so any help and insight here would be appreciated.
