In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how-to create Bootstrap buttons based on Material Design’s colour palette using Sass stylesheet language.Example of what we will create:

See the Pen Material Design Bootstrap Buttons by Brandon Himpfen (@brandonhimpfen) on CodePen.

HTML

To add a Material Design Bootstrap button to your website, web app or blog use the following HTML code:

<a href="" title="" class="btn btn-md-colour">Button</a>

Where btn-md-colour is the CSS class of the button you want to use.

If you want Material Design’s Red 500 colour, the HTML would be:

<a href="" title="" class="btn btn-md-red-500">Button</a>

We have not touched any of Bootstrap’s button classes, therefore you can still use Bootstrap’s sizing classes; a large button HTML code would be:

<a href="" title="" class="btn btn-md-red-500 btn-lg">Button</a>

To make your button raised, add btn-raised to the class, i.e.:

<a href="" title="" class="btn btn-md-red-500 btn-raised">Button</a>

Sass

Important: Even thought this example adds all material design colours, for demo purposes, you should only add the colours you need. Why? If you use all colours, the minified CSS is 388 KB.

To make a button raised, the CSS would be:

.btn-raised {
    box-shadow: 0 2px 2px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, .14), 0 3px 1px -2px rgba(0, 0, 0, .2), 0 1px 5px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, .12)
}
.btn-raised:active {
    box-shadow: 0 4px 5px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, .14), 0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0, 0, 0, .12), 0 2px 4px -1px rgba(0, 0, 0, .2);
}
.btn-raised:focus:not(:active) {
    box-shadow: 0 0 8px rgba(0, 0, 0, .18), 0 8px 16px
}
