I had one of those moments this week when I remembered I saw a while ago a tucked corners effect made by Joshua Hibbert. That was cool. While thinking about it, one of my first thoughts was to try finding an alternative solution which can allow you use a pattern as a background for the containing block.
Nowadays, using subtle patterns is kinda cool so I thought why not using them also on buttons? The idea was to create some nice CSS3 patterned buttons and in this article you’ll see what I’ve been working on lately.
You’ve seen triangles everywhere: on tooltips, dropdowns and even on loading animations. Like it or not, these small elements are quite important when trying to build some relationships between various UI elements.
There are some different ways to build a triangle for your web designs and in this article you’ll see how you can actually do that.
CSS transitions do not have any effect on background gradients. As far as I know, the thing is that something similar would be quite difficult to achieve considering the multitude of possible gradients that can be created using a color palette.
Though, there are some simple ways you can simulate smooth transitions on gradients and below you’ll see how to do that.
It would be just great if we could learn something new every day. I guess the best way to do it is by trying new stuff every time it’s possible.
While working on LeadConverter, I had a situation where it was needed to use an iconic font externally declared via
@font-face. So, in this situation, my iconic font worked perfectly in all major supported browsers, excepting Firefox. It was such disappointing situation.
After I’ve pulled out half of my hair searching for a solution, I found out that Firefox doesn’t allow cross-domain fonts by default – unless you set an
Access-Control-Allow-Origin header to the font.
