A função CSS
repeating-linear-gradient cria uma
<image> de repetidos gradientes. Isso funciona da mesma forma, e recebe os mesmos argumentos dos gradientes lineares básicos, como descrito em
linear-gradient, mas ele automaticamente repete as paradas das cores infinitamente em ambas as direções, com suas posições trocadas por múltiplos da diferença entre a posição da última parada de cor e a posição da primeira.
The consequence is that an end color of a gradient always coincide with a start color. If both are not identical, this will result in a sharp transition.
Like any other gradient, a repeating CSS linear gradient is not a CSS
<color> but an image with no intrinsic dimensions; that is, it has no natural or preferred size, nor ratio. Its concrete size will match the one of the element it applies to.

repeating-linear-gradient( 45deg, blue, red ); /* A repeating gradient on 45deg axe starting blue and finishing red */ repeating-linear-gradient( to left top, blue, red); /* A repeating gradient going from the bottom right to the top left starting blue and finishing red */ repeating-linear-gradient( 0deg, blue, green 40%, red ); /* A repeating gradient going from the bottom to top, starting blue, being green after 40% and finishing red */
- Represents the position of the starting-point of the gradient line. It consists of two keywords: the first one indicates the horizontal side,
right, and the second one the vertical side,
bottom. The order is not relevant and each of the keyword is optional.
to rightare translated into the angles
90degrespectively. The others are translated into an angle that let the starting-point to be in the same quadrant than the described corner and so that the line defined by the starting-point and the corner is perpendicular to the gradient line. That way, the color described by the
<color-stop>will exactly apply to the corner point. This is sometimes called the "magic corner" property. The end-point of the gradient line is the symmetrical point of the starting-point on the other direction of the center box.
- An angle of direction for the gradient. See
- This value is comprised of a
<color>value, followed by an optional stop position (either a percentage between 0% and 100% or a
<length>along the gradient axis).
Rendering of color-stops in CSS gradients follows the same rules as color-stops in SVG gradients.

 Internet Explorer 5.5 through 9.0 supports proprietary
filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Gradient() filter.
 WebKit since 528 supports the legacy
-webkit-gradient(linear,…) function. As of WebKit 534.16, it also supports the standard gradient syntax. Unlike in Gecko, in legacy WebKit you cannot specify both a position and angle in
-webkit-linear-gradient(). You can achieve the same effect by offsetting the color stops.
 Gecko, Opera & Webkit considers
<angle> to start to the right, instead of the top. I.e. it considered an angle of to start to the right, instead of the top. I.e. it considered an angle of
0deg as a direction indicator pointing to the right. This is different from the latest specification where an angle of
0deg as a direction indicator points to the top.
 Firefox 3.6 and Opera 11.10 implemented, prefixed, an early syntax where the starting corner or side was indicated without the
to keyword, and effectively considered as a from position. The
to syntax has been added in Firefox 10 and Opera 11.60 , at first without removing the deprecated syntax and translation between the two is trivial:
-moz-repeating-linear-gradient(to top left, blue, red);
is the same as:
-moz-repeating-linear-gradient(bottom right, blue, red);
The legacy syntax, without
to, is planned to go away when the prefix is removed.
