Material Components in Pure CSS
This project is work in progress, I am open-sourcing Pure CSS Material Components.
🎬 Get Started
Configurable builds, CDN support, and more are coming soon! Right now the process is manual:
distfolder. (For experimenting you can also use it from CDN, not production grade: https://res.cloudinary.com/finnhvman/raw/upload/v1550819828/matter/matter-experimental-7.css)
- Include it in your project or build pipeline
- Apply the class of your choice:
<!-- Contained Button --> <button class="matter-button-contained">Button</button> <!-- Outlined Button --> <button class="matter-button-outlined">Button</button> <!-- Text Button --> <button class="matter-button-text">Button</button> <!-- Filled Textfield (keep the placeholder attribute as it is) --> <label class="matter-textfield-filled"> <input placeholder=" "/> <span>Textfield</span> </label> <!-- Filled Textfield (textarea) (keep the placeholder attribute as it is) --> <label class="matter-textfield-filled"> <textarea placeholder=" "></textarea> <span>Textfield</span> </label> <!-- etc. --> <!-- Tooltip (put as first child of the originating component, use unique id on tooltip and the same id for aria-describedby on the originating component) --> <button class="matter-button-text" aria-describedby="button-tooltip"> <span id="button-tooltip" class="matter-tooltip" aria-hidden="true"><span>Tooltip</span></span> Button </button>

This is not for complex apps and SPAs. Rather use the following libraries in case of larger projects:
🌐 Browser Support
Matter components are well-covered with Visual Feature Tests (VFTs). Visual Feature Tests verify certain visual parts of components like: dominant color, shape of corners (rounded/sharp), types of edges (outlined or not), shadows, and more. VFTs are executed for every component in various states (like hover, focus, active, etc. and their permutations) in the three targeted browsers.
VFTs are not executed for the rest of the supported browsers, however best effort manual testing is performed to ensure operability and display.
The purpose of Matter is to provide the most easy-to-use but accurate implementation of Material Design Components.
Matter is built with theming in mind. Its components can be customized by specifying certain colors and/or fonts. The granularity of customization is variable: components can be themed on global level, component level, component instance level, or on any level between.
