Silky Buttons for Rails

I’ve used the Blueprint CSS framework on a number of projects and loved it. Recently though, I switched over to using the 960 Grid System for its more minimalist footprint. 960’s typography style-sheet contains just enough to get you started on any project, with no extra bloat. I love it.

Blueprint however, does still have a few nice plugins that I like to use. One such plugin was called Buttons, based on the work of Kevin Hale. Buttons makes use of the famfam silk icon set that Mark James released to the web community at large under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License.

So this weekend I built a rails plugin to incorporate ‘Buttons’ into my apps. Via a generator command, this plugin will copy the required silk icon set, styles and helper files into your app.

Let me know if you find it useful. Get it here on Github.
