Add a link to the wiki



Without CSS gradient support:


Install the plugin: (should automatically install latest dependencies for Compass, and Haml) sudo gem install fancy-buttons

To create a new project based on fancy-buttons:

compass install -r fancy-buttons -f fancy-buttons

To add fancy-buttons to an existing compass project:

# Add the following lines to your compass configuration file:
require 'fancy-buttons'

# Then run the following command:
compass install -r fancy-buttons -f fancy-buttons

Project Goals:

  • Generate a color palette from the base color
  • Discern sensible palette variations based on a base color (dark, medium, light)
  • Allow button style types (subtle gradient, shiny gradient)
  • Make it easy to override/modify styles
  • Reduce weight of generated styles (define button base, add color through additional classes)
  • Create good defaults
  • Ensure approximate consistency for browsers that don't support CSS gradients
  • Style the button element
  • Provide a decent alternative styling for ie6
