Creating Directionally Lit 3D Buttons with CSS

Ever thought of adding lighting effects to your UI buttons? You can! Learn how to create directionally lit 3D buttons with CSS and just a little bit of JavaScript.

I’m not too sure how I stumbled into this one. But something led me to this tweet:

Has anyone done this directional lighting cursor interaction with CSS? — Jed Bridges (@JedBridges) July 1, 2020

And, to me, that’s a challenge.

The button design is neat. But I didn’t want to do a direct copy. Instead, we decided to make a “Twitter” button. The idea is that we create an almost transparent button with a social icon on it. And then that social icon casts a shadow below. Moving our mouse across the button shines a light over it. Pressing the button pushes it onto the surface. Here’s the final result:

In this article, we’re going to look at how you can make it too. The cool thing is, you can swap the icon out to whatever you want.

Creating a CSS Visual Cheatsheet

The other day one of our students asked about possibility of having a CSS cheatsheet to help to decide on the best suited approach when doing this or that layout.

This evolved into the idea of making a visual CSS cheatsheet with all (most) of the common patterns we see everyday and one of the best possible conceptual implementation for them.

In the end any layout could and should be split into parts/blocks and we see every block separately.

Here is our first take on that and we would be happy to keep extending it to help us all.

Please, send you suggestions in the comments in community or via gitlab for the repeated CSS patterns with your favourite implementation for that so that we will all together make this as useful as it can be.

Without further ado, here are some of the most common scenarios one might encounter when it comes to this topic and how they can be approached.
