Day 1: Button ๐ŸŽ…


Let's start with a classic button. Every website needs one, right?

The example component is visible below.



A few notes about this button component:

  • CSS Variables are used for colors,
  • the default button style is reset using the all: unset declaration,
  • the font-family: inherit declaration is mandatory to apply font family to a button,
  • the :after pseudo-element is used for smooth hover transition,
  • the outline property is used for focus indication,
  • to respect the user preference for reduced motion, --transition-duration-xmas CSS variable is set to 0s (read more about using CSS Variables for reduced motion on a global scale).

The code:

<button type="button" class="advent-button">Merry Christmas! ๐ŸŽ„</button>
.advent-button {
--color-xmas-beta: #d72621;
--color-xmas-alpha: #f7efef;
--color-xmas-gamma: #639565;
--transition-duration-xmas: .3s;

all: unset;

background-color: var(--color-xmas-alpha);
color: var(--color-xmas-beta);

font-family: inherit;
font-size: 1rem;
letter-spacing: .06em;
line-height: 1.66;
text-transform: uppercase;

display: flex;
justify-content: center;
align-items: center;
position: relative;

min-height: 3em;
padding: .3em 3em;
border-radius: 1.2em;
border: .6em solid var(--color-xmas-beta);

cursor: pointer;
}

.advent-button:after {
content: "";
position: absolute;
top: -0.6em;
right: -0.6em;
bottom: -0.6em;
left: -0.6em;
z-index: -1;
border-radius: .6em;
background-color: var(--color-xmas-beta);
transform: scale(.8);
transition: transform cubic-bezier(0.3, 0.9, 0.3, 1.2) var(--transition-duration-xmas);
}

.advent-button:hover:after,
.advent-button:focus:after
{
transform: scale(1);
}

.advent-button:focus:after {
outline: .3em dashed var(--color-xmas-gamma);
outline-offset: .3em;
}

.advent-button:active:after {
outline: none;
transform: scale(.8);
}

@media (prefers-reduced-motion: reduce) {
.advent-button {
--transition-duration-xmas: 0s;
}
}

P.S. I usually don't group properties like this, but I've used it for better readability.
