Google+ style buttons, download 200 Google+ icons

The Google+ social network, even being in the beta testing stage, burst into the lives of advanced users like a hurricane, so you shouldn’t be surprised at the interest this social network arouses, including among web designers, developers and SEO optimizers. This interest is quite large and is constantly “fueled” by Google developers, who are constantly improving the project and adding integration with their other services. For example, Google+ buttons and icons are popular among SEOs that allow you to add “+1” to your site or page.

But not “+1” alone, in the last year the appearance of Google+ has dictated fashion and other Google services, which have undergone a design and style change. A common element for many projects is a stylish menu at the top of the page, similar icons, control buttons, and in general many different elements that can be found in all projects – from Gmail mail to Google Reader. Today I present to you an interesting set of Google+-style buttons found on the shrapp.nl website. This set is not just icons of the social network Google+, but rather a whole framework that allows you to add interface buttons from Google+ to your site.

You can watch a demo of how the Google+ buttons work, download these icons and read the documentation for their installation on this page. First, you, of course. you can just say these cute minimalistic icons for different actions, situations, etc. to use in your design or website. A more advanced option is to connect a framework (scripts) for applying icons via css styles easily and quickly.

Installing Google+ buttons

Full and more detailed instructions can be found at the link above – there are different options and examples of use. I will only consider the installation process + one of the options for using the buttons after you have downloaded the corresponding archive.

So, the installation order:

1. Place the css file and images in the root directory of the site, or wherever you have the styles for the template.

2. “Include” the style sheet to do this, add a link of the form to the code (added anywhere between and ):

<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/css3-buttons.css" type="text/css" media="screen">

3. Next, let’s include the jQuery TipTip plugin and the corresponding stylesheet (added anywhere between and ):

<!-- Using TipTip jQuery plugin for the tooltips -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="tiptip.css" type="text/css"  media="screen">
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="jquery.tiptip.js"></script>
<script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
                // Launch TipTip tooltip
                $('.tiptip a.button, .tiptip button').tipTip();
        });
</script>

4. If you want a dropdown menu, add also:

<script>
        $(document).ready(function() {
                // Toggle the dropdown menu's
                $(".dropdown .button, .dropdown button").click(function () {
                        $(this).parent().find('.dropdown-slider').slideToggle('fast');
                        $(this).find('span.toggle').toggleClass('active');
                        return false;
                });
        }); // END document.ready
 
        // Close open dropdown slider/s by clicking elsewhwere on page
        $(document).bind('click', function (e) {
                if (e.target.id != $('.dropdown').attr('class')) {
                        $('.dropdown-slider').slideUp();
                        $('span.toggle').removeClass('active');
                }
        }); // END document.bind
</script>

This completes the installation. Now, for example, to display such buttons:

… add the code:

<a href="#" class="button left"><span class="label">Left</span></a>
<a href="#" class="button middle"><span class="label">Middle</span></a>
<a href="#" class="button right"><span class="label">Right</span></a>
 
<a href="#" class="button left"><span class="icon icon63"></span></a>
<a href="#" class="button middle"><span class="icon icon58"></span></a>
<a href="#" class="button right"><span class="icon icon64"></span></a>

That is, due to the framework, all Google+ buttons can be displayed via css and html by simple actions. You can find more examples of using the Google+ style buttons in the documentation I linked to earlier. In principle, there is nothing complicated, but it turns out very nicely and stylishly – especially, I think, it will be relevant for the development of some kind of in-house websites, where buttons will be used for the system interface.
