When we need a switch toggles designs to implement, there is always a challenge for me to find a perfect CSS Toggles. We can find lots of awesome frameworks to work with but they are just heavy in size to use.
I found this little pure CSS library
MoreToggles.css which has a variety of nice-looking toggles.
You only have to add a new ClassName to the wrapper div and this library will do the magic for you.
- Pure CSS
- 8 different styles
- Perfect scaling
- More styles are coming soon!!
Let’s jump it out it's usage
Import the stylesheet
<head> <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/gh/JNKKKK/MoreToggles.css/output/moretoggles.min.css"> </head>
Wrap an extra div around your
<label>. Add a
mt-* class to it.
<div class="mt-ios-red"> <input id="2" type="checkbox" /> <label for="2"></label> </div>
Varieties of styles
You can scale the toggles by assigning a
style="font-size:10px;" to the wrapper div. You can try different numbers and the toggle will scale smoothly.
<div class="mt-ios" style="font-size:10px;"> <input id="3" type="checkbox" /> <label for="3"></label> </div>
Just like regular checkbox, you can add a
disabled attribute to
<div class="mt-ios"> <input id="4" type="checkbox" disabled/> <label for="4"></label> </div>
Be careful on nesting the
<input> directly inside the
<label> is NOT supported, although it is valid HTML syntax
<div class="mt-ios"> <label> <input type="checkbox" /> </label> </div>
<div class="mt-ios"> <input id="1" type="checkbox" /> <label for="1"></label> </div>

Can you clarify this bit? I've always read different opinions on this. It's an accessibility issue, I guess?
What I know is:
That being said, I stopped putting
<label>s a while ago just to be safe, but there's still this uncertainty that bugs me.
