39 Ridiculous Box Shadows

Delicious, juicy CSS3.

Ripe for the taking.

Oh, the glory.


Inspired by Doug Avery’s post, this handy little Stylus/CSS Library is just waiting for you to share the shadowy goodness on the Web.

File Layout

  • Each box shadow is separated into its own file, so you can @import only the shadows you need.
  • The stylus directory is the “true” source code. It generates everything you see in css and css-min.
  • If you don’t use Stylus (you totally should, though), there’s pre-compiled CSS ready for you to use out of the box. There’s even pre-minified CSS if you prefer. Aren’t I thoughtful? :-)
  • The filenames are silly, I know… They’re named after the CSS class names of the original author. I’d like to do something to improve the situation without completely losing the whimsy, though. (Maybe symlinks…?)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
