Sassy Text Shadows

This is mostly a bad idea.


Active development has moved to Team-Sass/sassytextshadow.

Please direct your attention there.

Sincerely, The Management


Sassy Text Shadow is a Sass mixin that calculates convoluted curvy shadows for css3 text-shadow. It can also be used for box-shadow if you're into that kind of thing.

Sassy Text Shadows can be used as a Compass extension and can be installed as a Ruby gem.

View the test.

Sassy Mother Effiing Text Shadow

Installation

Usage requires Sass and Compass. Visit sass-lang.com and compass-style.org to learn more and install.

gem install sassy-text-shadow

Then add require 'sassy-text-shadow' to your Compass config file.

Usage

Original (Wavy Shadows)

@function sassy-text-shadow($color, $iterations, $rad, $deg, $cos-i, $sin-i, $color-multiplier)

Once the gem is in place, simply call the sassy-text-shadow() function within the compass @include text-shadow mixin. Like so:

:::scss
h1 {
  @include text-shadow(sassy-text-shadow(#b80000, 100, 80, 360, 180, 180, 0));
}

The arguments are, in order:

  • $color: the starting color of the shadow
  • $iterations: how many shadows to generate
  • $rad: the radius of the curve
  • $deg: how far around the curve to go
  • $cos-i: the multiplier for cos()
  • $sin-i: the multiplier for sin()
  • $color-multiplier: an amount to shift the hue of the color as it iterates

Long Shadows NEW

@function long-shadow($color: gray, $iterations: 100, $spread: 2px, $deg: 45)

This function produces long shadows at arbitrary angles.

:::scss
h3 {
  @include text-shadow(long-shadow(30, #BADA55, 25, 0));
}

The arguments are, in order:

  • $deg: the angle of the shadow
  • $color: the color of the shadow
  • $iterations: how many shadows to generate
  • $spread: how much blur to add
