LESS CSS Drop Shadow "Generator" mixin

Categories Tags

Ever needed a neat way to generate drop shadow using LESS? Here's a simple mixin for that

// boxshadow mixin from www.herlitz.nu
.boxshadow(@horizontalOffset: 0, @verticalOffset: 0, @blur: 10px, @color: #000, @opacity: 0.8, @spread: 0, @inset: false ) {
    @red: red(@color);
    @green: green(@color);
    @blue: blue(@color);

    & when (@inset = true) {
        -webkit-box-shadow: inset @horizontalOffset @verticalOffset @blur @spread rgba(@red, @green, @blue, @opacity);
        -moz-box-shadow: inset @horizontalOffset @verticalOffset @blur @spread rgba(@red, @green, @blue, @opacity);
        box-shadow: inset @horizontalOffset @verticalOffset @blur @spread rgba(@red, @green, @blue, @opacity);
    }

    & when (@inset = false) {
        -webkit-box-shadow: @horizontalOffset @verticalOffset @blur @spread rgba(@red, @green, @blue, @opacity);
        -moz-box-shadow: @horizontalOffset @verticalOffset @blur @spread rgba(@red, @green, @blue, @opacity);
        box-shadow: @horizontalOffset @verticalOffset @blur @spread rgba(@red, @green, @blue, @opacity);
    }
}
