CSS Style Generator

By Daniel Scocco

If you play with CSS once in a while you should check out the CSS Builder tool. You just need to name the selector that you want to style and fill out the form.


On the generator you will be able to style text and fonts, box properties, background colors and positioning. The output will be some lines of code like this:

a.hover {
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 14px;
font-weight: bold;
font-style: italic;
color: ffffff;
text-decoration: underline;

As you can see the tool can also be used by people who are learning CSS. You can play with the different attributes on the forms and see how they are translated into actual CSS code.

    Dreamweaver has enough features to satisfy my tastes – the tastes of someone that knows nothing about coding 🙂

  • Sheila

    Thanks for the info! I have learned coding through trial and error and this should help give me less errors!

  • Steven Snell

    Hey Daniel,
    I think you’re right, this looks like a good tool for learning. It is pretty similar to how Dreamweaver works, like Eli mentioned, but a lot of people looking to learn CSS don’t want to drop the money for Dreamweaver right away.

  • Daniel Scocco

    Yeah Dreamweaver is not the cheapest of the software.

    Could you use this tool to generate a block of code and then cut and paste into an existing CSS form to modify it or is it not that simple. Sorry, I’m a CSS idiot 🙁

  • Daniel Scocco

    Yes you can cut and paste the code generated with this tool directly into your CSS stylesheet, just make sure that the selectors you will create are not there already (i.e., do not copy and paste another code for h1 tags if you already have these there, or remember to remove the old code).

  • Ad Tracker

    Well, that makes this a very cool tool. Thanks!

  • Young

    I do not use that tool/
    what i use is Dreamveaver, a good tool for me.

  • Nick

    I like this tool, but in all honesty, I can type faster than I can fill out the fields. 🙂

  • Jim

    Great… this is exactly what I have been looking for since I am a bit of a CSS dolt.

    Good free software to use when writing any code is Notepad++ – google it, download and you are done. When you choose the language you would like to use it will highlite the code which makes witing it much easier.

    The other good learning tool for the css is developer toolbar for firefox.
    Install it and you can go to any website and view its css, and even have a go at editing it.
