CSS Resources

November 22, 2011 — 2 Comments

Someone, I forget whom, shared with me these two good CSS resources, and I thought I’d pass them along. The first is Make CSS3 Buttons That Are Extremely Fancy and the article explains exactly that. I’m not a graphics person, so being able to do something using only CSS is great for me (and being told exactly what to do is even better). A benefit of CSS buttons is that the user does not have to download the additional resources of all those extra images, especially when you factor in images for different states (hover et al.).

The other resource is ProCSSor, a CSS prettifier. It’s just a utility that you can drop a slew of CSS into and it will clean it up as you’d like. It will even work on CSS in an uploaded file or located on a provided URL.

If you enjoyed this post, then please consider following me using your favorite social media, the RSS feed, and/or by subscribing to my newsletter. Or go crazy, and buy one or more of my books . Thanks!

  1. Thanks for sharing the links. I’m no designer either and the new CSS3 effects really help. When I recently re-done my website I used a lot of subtle effects including slight gradients, text-shadows and rounded corners to take the edge of the sharp corners of the text and boxes/borders.

Comments are great, but I'd strongly prefer any requests for assistance get made in the support forums. Thanks!
