my CSS3 library for making Microsoft-metro themed buttons

branch: master
readme.md

Overview

Formerly known as CSS3 Microsoft-Metro Buttons (CMMB)

Inspired by Microsoft's Modern Design Language, I was in need of a metro-styled CSS3 button library. I wanted to make similar metro-looking buttons used by Microsoft (extensively used in their Microsoft Windows Azure website) So I've built a very small, simple and clean CSS3 library to deal with my problem.

Thus CSS3 Microsoft-Modern Buttons was born. Weighing in at a healthy 33KB (compressed, 5.5KB gzipped), it's a light-weight and easy-to-use CSS/JS library that uses CSS3 styles for button design. The library can also work with Twitter Bootstrap. The buttons are also cross-browser compatibile from IE8, to the latest version of Chrome, and Firefox so you don't have to spend countless minutes testing on different browsers.

My goal is to help developers out there shave off some wasted time building that metro-like stylesheet by providing them a library, a starter kit, a base on which they can build upon.

Demo and Documentation

Developers

LESS and SASS

LESS makes us write CSS much more like functional programming and it trains us to solve problems that way. I use wearekiss's SIMPLESS. To know more about LESS visit http://www.lesscss.org. To access the LESS and SASSfiles, download the "dsl-branch" branch.

Though as of 1.1.0, I haven't found the time to do it with LESS or SASS.

Got a bug to report or a feature request?
