Fanstatic packaging of CSS3 GitHub Buttons

Project description



This library packages CSS3 GitHub Buttons for fanstatic.

There’s a lot of versions of this CSS library floating around, so we’re currently using the one provided by necolas on GitHub. If development moves elsewhere, we can adjust the library accordingly. If you’re using this and notice a change in development at (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:

import css.css3githubbuttons

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 pyramid_fanstatic.

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. Do this at the base of the repository:

pushd css/css3githubbuttons/resources/css3-github-buttons/
git commit -a -m "Updating to latest version"
git push


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 copying 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:

>>> from css.css3githubbuttons import buttons
>>> buttons.need()
