Unbuttoning Buttons

We dug into overriding default buttons styles not long ago here on CSS-Tricks. With garden-variety fully cross-browser-supported styles, you’re looking at 6-10 CSS rules to tear down anything you need to off a button and then put in place your own styles. Hardly a big deal if you ask me, especially since it’s extremely likely you’ll be styling buttons anyway. Scott O’Hara has taken a look as well. I think the solution offered to use a is a little bizarre since you need bring your own keyboard handling with is non-trivial and requires JavaScript. But there are a couple of interesting other CSS explorations, neither of which stacked up for different reasons: display: contents; – some semantics-based accessibility problems. all: unset; – doesn’t reset display value, not good enough browser support.

modern-normalize

Another don’t call it a reset from Sindre Sorhus. It’s a port of Normalize that, as the name suggests, is modernized to remove some of the older stuff and add a few opinionated bits. I’m good with light sensible opinions, like in this case, box-sizing: border-box; everywhere. This looks similar to sanitize.css which is also based on Normalize and brings a few more sensible opinions. Same with Reboot. If you’re interested in some of the history and thinking behind these things, I wrote about that not long ago. Daniel Box made a little tool to compare them and I forked it to include modern-normalize. Direct Link to Article — Permalink modern-normalize is a post from CSS-Tricks...

Reboot, Resets, and Reasoning

I saw in an article by Nicholas Cerminara the other day (careful visiting that link, looks like they have some tracking scripts run wild) that Bootstrap 4 has a new CSS reset baked in they are calling Reboot: Reboot, a collection of element-specific CSS changes in a single file, kickstart Bootstrap to provide an elegant, consistent, and simple baseline to build upon. If you’re new to CSS development, the whole idea of a CSS reset is to deal with styling inconsistencies across browsers. For example, just now I popped a onto a page with no other styling whatsoever. Chrome applies padding: 2px 6px 3px; – Firefox applies padding: 0 8px;. A CSS reset would apply new padding to that element, so that all browsers are consistent about what they apply. There are loads of examples like that. By way of a bit of history… In 2007 Jeff Starr rounded up a bunch of different CSS resets. The oldest one dated is Tantek Çelik’s undohtml.css (that’s a direct link to the source). We can see that the purpose behind it was to strip away default styling. /* undohtml.css */ /* (CC) 2004 Tantek Celik.
