Awesome Bootstrap Checkbox – CSS based Checkbox and Radio plugin

Font Awesome Bootstrap Checkboxes & Radios plugin. Pure css way to make inputs look prettier. No javascript!

 

Use

First just include awesome-bootstrap-checkbox.css somewhere in your html. Or awesome-bootstrap-checkbox.scss if you use sass. Next everything is based on code convention. Here is checkbox markup from Bootstrap site:

<form role="form">
  ...
  <div class="checkbox">
    <label>
      <input type="checkbox"> Check me out
    </label>
  </div>
  ...
</form>

We have to alter it a bit:

<form role="form">
  ...
  <div class="checkbox">
    <input type="checkbox" id="checkbox1">
    <label for="checkbox1">
        Check me out
    </label>
  </div>
  ...
</form>

That’s it. It will work. But it will not work if you nest input inside label or put label before input.

If you want to enable Opera 12 and earlier support just add class styled to input element:

...
<input type="checkbox" id="checkbox1" class="styled">
...

Browser support

  • Firefox (3.6+)
  • Chrome (14+)
  • IE (9+)
  • Opera (11.6+)
  • Safari (6+)

Radios

It’s the same for radios. Markup has to be the following:

<form role="form">
  ...
  <div class="radio">
      <input type="radio" name="radio2" id="radio3" value="option1">
      <label for="radio3">
          One
      </label>
  </div>
  <div class="radio">
      <input type="radio" name="radio2" id="radio4" value="option2" checked>
      <label for="radio4">
          Two
      </label>
  </div>
  ...
</form>

Brand Colors and other features

You may use checkbox-primary, checkbox-danger, radio-info, etc to style checkboxes and radios with brand bootstrap colors.

checkbox-circle is for rounded checkboxes.

checkbox-single and radio-single for inputs without label text.

Glyphicons way (Opt-out Font Awesome)

If you want to use glyphicons instead of font-awesome then override .checkbox class:

.checkbox input[type=checkbox]:checked + label:after {
    font-family: 'Glyphicons Halflings';
    content: "\e013";
}
.checkbox label:after {
    padding-left: 4px;
    padding-top: 2px;
    font-size: 9px;
