  <h1>Long shadow generator</h1>
  <p>A Sass mixin that makes pulling off 'long shadow design' as easy as pie.
  </p>
    <p>For more information about this design trend, head over to <a href="http://je.roon.io/long-shadow-design">http://je.roon.io/long-shadow-design</a>. Just make sure not to look at the compiled CSS :)</p>

  <h2>Features</h2>
<ul>
  <li>Works with any element, both <strong>text-shadow</strong> and <strong>box-shadow</strong> is supported.</li>
  <li>Variable color</li>
  <li>Variable shadow length</li>
  <li>Shadow can either point to the <strong>left</strong> or to the <strong>right</strong></li>
  <li>Define if the shadow is <strong>skewed</strong> or not</li>
  <li>Choose if the shadow <strong>fades out</strong> or not (still in beta)</li>
</ul>  
<pre>
  <code class="language-scss">
.my-thing {
  @include long-shadow($type: text, $color: indigo, $length: 50, $fadeout: false, $skew: true, $direction: right);
}
  //That's it!</code>
  </pre>
  <h2>How does it work?</h2>
  <p>Basically: It uses a Sass @for loop to create a number of box-shadows, every shadow with a slightly different position. The number of shadows is based on the length that you enter.
