import { LinearGradient } from 'expo-linear-gradient';

colors An array of colors that represent stops in the gradient. At least two colors are required (otherwise it's not a gradient, it's just a fill!).
start An array of [x, y] where x and y are floats. They represent the position that the gradient starts at, as a fraction of the overall size of the gradient. For example, [0.1, 0.2] means that the gradient will start 10% from the left and 20% from the top.
end Same as start but for the end of the gradient.
locations An array of the same length as colors, where each element is a float with the same meaning as the start and end values, but instead they indicate where the color at that index should be.
