Compass CSS arrow

This extension provides a mixin to add a css-only arrow to a box.

The original CSS code is taken from cssarrowplease by Simon Højberg.

Installation

With Bundler :

// in your Gemfile

gem 'compass-css-arrow'

Without Bundler :

// in a shell

$ (sudo) gem install compass-css-arrow

Add to a project :

// rails: compass.config, other: config.rb
require 'compass-css-arrow'

// command line
compass install compass-css-arrow

Usage

// @include css-arrow($position, $size, $color, $border-width, $border-color, $border-style);
// default values :
// $position      : top | right | bottom | left
// $size          : any border-accepted length - px, em, etc. (NOT %)
// $color         : any color
// $border-width  : any border-accepted length with units comparable to $size
// $border-color  : any color
// $border-style  : dotted | dashed | solid | double | groove | ridge | inset | outset
// $offset        : 50% | any valid position value - px, em, % (too small or too large will look weird)

@import 'compass-css-arrow';
.arrow-box {
  @include css-arrow(top, 30px, #88b7d5, 4px, #c2e1f5, solid, 75%);
}

// specify only some of the values :
@include css-arrow($size: 1em, $border-style: dotted);
