CSS Gradient Examples

In CSS, we can add a solid color to the background using background color. Similarly, we can add a gradient to the background using the background-image property. Also, not only just background, we can add gradients to borders, icons, buttons, text and many more. CSS gradient provides us with better control and output than image. So this blog will cover some exciting CSS gradient examples that you will be going to love.

Before looking at the examples, let’s first discuss what CSS gradient is.

CSS Gradient

Gradients mean one color that fades into another and generates a new color shade. While CSS gradient let you control every aspect of the process, from the direction and shape to the color of the gradient. It enables you to generate smooth transitions between two and more solid colors.

There are three types of CSS Gradients:

  1. Linear gradient
  2. Radial gradient
  3. Conic gradient

Also we can also create repeating gradients using the three repeating functions: 1. repeating-linear-gradient(), 2. repeating-radial-gradient() and 3. repeating-conic-gradient().   

I. Linear Gradient

The linear gradient is created using the linear-gradient() function. The linear-gradient() creates a gradient image consists of a transition along a straight line between two and more colors.

Syntax:

linear-gradient(
  [ <angle> | to <side-or-corner> ]? ,
  <color-stop-list>
)
<side-or-corner> = [to left | to right] || [to top | to bottom]

II. Radial Gradient

We can create radial gradient using the radial-gradient() function. The radial-gradient() creates a gradient image consists of a transition radiate from an origin between two and more colors. The transition shape can be an ellipse or a circle.

Syntax:

radial-gradient(
  [ <ending-shape> || <size> ]? [ at <position> ]? ,
  <color-stop-list>
);

III. Conic Gradient

The conic gradient is created using the conic-gradient() function. The conic-gradient() creates a gradient image consists of a transition rotate around the center point between two and more colors. 

Syntax:

conic-gradient(
  [ from <angle> ]? [ at <position> ]?,
  <angular-color-stop-list>
)
