              //Auto Custom Bootstrap Buttons

//Created a Mixn so it can be stored in a partial, but doesn't have to be.

//The Mixin generates all the classes you need via the @each function

//Gives you complete control on how you want your custom buttons to look like, while using all the lovely bootstrap class names for buttons. Go ahead and play with the CSS to create your own custom buttons

//I had fun making this, btw, I am linking to the bootstrap.css via github for the core styling.

  return false
  //just so you can click the buttons without reload
