Angle gradient in canvas

I’m looking for a code that permits to have this effect on a canvas’ stroke. I’ve already got an animated circular stroke, I only need to get the ANGLE gradient, not linear and not radial. I’ve got only 3 colours. The existing one is available here (the review rating)

Answer

A context strokeStyle can be a gradient:

// create a gradient

gradient = ctx.createLinearGradient(xStart, yStart, xEnd, yEnd);
gradient.addColorStop(0.0,"blue");
gradient.addColorStop(1.0,"purple");


// stroke using that gradient

ctx.strokeStyle = gradient;

Example code and a Demo using a gradient strokeStyle: http://jsfiddle.net/m1erickson/w46ps/

    var canvas=document.getElementById("canvas");

    function drawMultiRadiantCircle(xc, yc, r, radientColors) {
        var partLength = (2 * Math.PI) / radientColors.length;
        var start = 0;

            var yStart = yc + Math.sin(start) * r;
            var yEnd = yc + Math.sin(start + partLength) * r;

            ctx.beginPath();

            gradient = ctx.createLinearGradient(xStart, yStart, xEnd, yEnd);
            gradient.addColorStop(0, startColor);
            gradient.addColorStop(1.0, endColor);

            ctx.strokeStyle = gradient;
            ctx.arc(xc, yc, r, start, start + partLength);
            ctx.lineWidth = 30;
            ctx.stroke();
            ctx.closePath();

            start += partLength;
        }
    }

    var someColors = [];
    someColors.push('#0F0');
    someColors.push('#0FF');
    someColors.push('#F00');
    someColors.push('#FF0');

    drawMultiRadiantCircle(150, 150, 120, someColors);
