Day 4: Banner 🚩


A banner is an element that highlights information, like a website page or an event or Advent of UI Components.

The component could be seen at the top of the site.

A few notes about this banner component:

  • CSS Variables are used for colors,
  • position: sticky and top: 0 declarations are used for “sticking” the banner to the top of the page without affecting the layout,
  • linear-gradient as a background, -webkit-background-clip: text;, and -webkit-text-fill-color: transparent; declaration are used for gradient text color.
  • border-top-color and border-bottom-color properties are used for hover style,
  • 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:

<div class="advent-banner">
<p><a href="/side-projects/advent/">Check my Advent of UI Components 2021!</a></p>
</div>
.advent-banner {
--color-xmas-alpha: #f7efef;
--color-xmas-beta: #d72621;
--color-xmas-gamma: #639565;
--transition-duration-xmas: .3s;

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

text-align: center;

position: sticky;
top: 0;

z-index: 1;
}

.advent-banner p,
.advent-banner a
{
background-image: linear-gradient(to right, var(--color-xmas-beta), var(--color-xmas-gamma));
-webkit-background-clip: text;
-webkit-text-fill-color: transparent;
}
.advent-banner p {
margin: 0;
}

.advent-banner a {
padding: .3em;
border: .3em solid transparent;
transition: border-color var(--transition-duration-xmas);
}
