Simple Interactive Pie Chart with CSS Variables and Houdini Magic

I got the idea for doing something of the kind when I stumbled across this interactive SVG pie chart. While the SVG code is as compact as it gets (a single <circle> element!), using strokes for creating pie chart slices is problematic as we run into rendering issues on Windows for Firefox and Edge. Plus, in 2018, we can accomplish a lot more with a lot less JavaScript!

AI got the following result down to a single HTML element …

Chrome 69

Chrome 69 is notable for us CSS developers:

  • Conic gradients (i.e. background: conic-gradient(red, green, blue);): We’ve got lots of interesting articles about conic gradients here, and here’s some use cases and a polyfill from Lea Verou.
  • Logical box model properties: margin, padding, and border all get an upgrade for more use cases. Think of how we have margin-left now — the “left” part doesn’t make much sense when we switch directions. Now, we’ll have margin-inline-start for

1 Element CSS Rainbow Gradient Infinity

I first got the idea to CSS something of the kind when I saw this gradient infinity logo by Infographic Paradise.

1 HTML Element + 5 CSS Properties = Magic!

Let’s say I told you we can get the results below with just one HTML element and five CSS properties for each. No SVG, no images (save for the background on the root that’s there just to make clear that our one HTML element has some transparent parts), no JavaScript. What would you think that involves?

The desired results.

Well, this article is going to explain just how to do this and then also show how to make things fun …

Using Conic Gradients and CSS Variables to Create a Doughnut Chart Output for a Range Input

I recently came across this Pen and my first thought was that it could all be done with just three elements: a wrapper, a range input and an output. On the CSS side, this involves using a conic-gradient() with a stop set to a CSS variable.

The result we want to reproduce.

In mid 2015, Lea Verou unveiled a polyfill for conic-gradient() during a conference talk where she demoed how they can be used for creating pie charts. This …
