        <h3>CSS Only Material Design Button Ripple Effect</h3>
        <p>I was looking at the Google Material Design stuff and wanted to see if I could approximate the click ripple effect using CSS only.<br />The requirements I had:</p>
          <li>CSS only</li>
          <li>No extra HTML elements</li>
          <li>No extra Javascript</li>
        <p>The result:</p>
          <button class="button-base ripple">Ripple Button</button>
          <button class="button-base ripple">Ripple Button</button>
          <button class="button-base ripple">Ripple Button</button>
          <li>To size and position the ripple, I had to use absolute fixed sizes and positioning, <br />so the scale and timing would be off if the element is much larger than a button</li>
          <li>No Javascript, so can't position the ripple at the click origin</li>
          <li>Browser compatibility? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯</li>
          <li>The click uses :focus, so it's only going through once</li>
