Button color logic should allow switching to lighten/darken mode

With the new changes,  many variables were removed (like $primary-button-hovered-bg).

It is now generated through internal sass functions - but unfortunately, it only supports mixing color with black/white. resulting in washed-out colors if you want a lighter hover color.


I would expect to have an option to have a more linear lighten/darken sass functions.


Looking at the Kendo theme - try-lighten / try-darken exist that take the same input parameters.

There is also $kendo-solid-button-shade-function - but it is not marked as !default and cannot be overwritten.

Hi, Mauro.

You make some great points on button customization and component customization in general. We'll make the function parameter !default, so it can be customized. That is an oversight on our part and we'll fix it.

We are also working on ways to make the customization easier. Would you mind if we pinged you in our dev threads? And ofcourse, feel free to share any feedback at any time.
