CSS3 GitHub Buttons

CSS3 GitHub Buttons helps you easily create GitHub-style buttons from links, buttons, and inputs.

Example: nicolasgallagher.com/lab/css3-github-buttons/

Buttons

The "buttons" can be created by adding class="button" to any appropriate <a>, <button>, or <input> element. Add a further class of pill to create a button pill-like button. Add a further class of primary to emphasise more important actions.

<a href="#" class="button">Post comment (link)</a>
<input class="button" type="submit" value="Post comment (input)">
<button class="button" type="submit">Post comment (button)</button>

Buttons with dangerous actions

If you have a button that triggers a dangerous action, like deleting data, this can be indicated by adding the class danger.

<a href="#" class="button danger">Delete post</a>

Big buttons

If you wish to emphasize a specific action you can add the class big.

<a href="#" class="button big">Create Project</a>

Grouped buttons

Groups of buttons can be created by wrapping them in an element given a class of button-group. A less important group of buttons can be marked out by adding a further class, minor-group.

<div class="button-group minor-group">
    <a href="#" class="button primary">Dashboard</a>
    <a href="#" class="button">Inbox</a>
    <a href="#" class="button">Account</a>
    <a href="#" class="button">Logout</a>
</div>

Mixed groups

Displaying a mixture of grouped and standalone buttons, as might be seen in a toolbar, can be done by adding another wrapping element with the class button-container.

<div class="actions button-container">
    <a href="#" class="button primary">Compose new</a>

    <div class="button-group">
        <a href="#" class="button primary">Archive</a>
        <a href="#" class="button">Report spam</a>
        <a href="#" class="button danger">Delete</a>
    </div>

    <div class="button-group minor-group">
        <a href="#" class="button">Move to</a>
        <a href="#" class="button">Labels</a>
    </div>
</div>

Buttons with icons

A range of icons can be added (only for links and buttons) by adding a class of icon and any one of the provided icon classes.

<a href="#" class="button icon search">Search</a>

Browser compatibility

Note: Some CSS3 features are not supported in older versions of Opera and versions of Internet Explorer prior to IE 8. The use of icons is not supported in IE 6 or IE 7.
