This library packages CSS3 GitHub Buttons for fanstatic. Check out
a demo of this library - it’s really nice. This library provides
the default buttons and various extensions as per the demo. As a bonus, this
library also packages up minified versions of the library’s CSS.
There’s a lot of versions of this CSS library floating around,
so we’re currently using the one provided by CodeFusion, a fork
of the library originally provided by
necolas, on GitHub.
If development moves elsewhere, we can adjust the library accordingly.
If you’re using this package and notice a change in development at
https://github.com/CodeFusion/css3-github-buttons/network (such as
someone has taken over development more than original author or is otherwise
doing more work) before we do, let us know or send a pull request.
Install using your favourite method (pip, easy_install, buildout,
etc) and then in your code do this:
This requires integration between your web framework and fanstatic,
and making sure that the original resources (shipped in the resources
directory in css.css3githubbuttons) are published to some URL.
For Pyramid, this can be as simple as installing and utilising
Updating this package
Given this package uses the latest (at the time of writing) GitHub master
of the CSS library, it may (will) need updating at some point.
This process requires installation of the package for development - the
suggested method to do this is via the Buildout within this package:
For minification of resources to succeed, you require a Java installation
as this process uses the YUI Compressor library (via the minify
and yuicompressor Python packages).
Do this at the base of the repository:
rm -rf css3-github-buttons
tar xf master.tar.gz
git mv css3-github-buttons-master css3-github-buttons
git add css3-github-buttons
#Minify the CSS
python setup.py minify_buttons
python setup.py minify_buttons_ext_icons
python setup.py minify_buttons_ext_size
git commit -a -m "Updated to latest version"
We could use Git submodules but setuptools seems to hate them,
setuptools-git really doesn’t want to agree with them,
zest.releaser doesn’t support recursive cloning (yet; pull request
sent), and so forth. Feel free to help improve this situation! Yikes!
So, let’s resort to manually taking a copy of the files out of GitHub.
Tests - How to use
You can import buttons from css.css3githubbuttons and need it
where you want these resources to be included on a page:
