    <h1>Tilted angles in CSS</h1>
    <p>Thanks to Pythagoras Theorem, some gradients and a bit of Sass-powered trigonometry, we can easily created tilted angles with nothing but CSS.</p>
    <pre><code>.container {
  @include tilted(3deg, $color: #fff);
    <p>How handy!</p>


                /// Computes the height of the tilted pseudo-element based on the given angle
/// using Pythagoras Theorem.
// sin(..), pow(..) and sqrt(..)  functions come from this pen:

/// @author Hugo Giraudel
/// @param {Angle} $angle - the tilt angle
@function get-tilted-height($angle) {
  $a: (100% / 1%);
  $A: (90deg - $angle);
  $c: ($a / sin($A));
  $b: sqrt(pow($c, 2) - pow($a, 2));

  @return (abs($b) * 1%);

/// Apply a tilted effect by generating a pseudo-element with a diagonal
/// splitted background.
