LANDSCAPE

A Stylus-powered frontend toolkit based on Bootstrap.

Landscape is currently in early stages of development and breaking changes will most certainly be introduced. Recommended use for development purposes only.

To get started -- checkout the docs!

Installation

To install Landscape you must have nodejs installed.

$ npm install -g landscape

For automatic generation of linear gradient PNGs, install node-canvas (does not currently work on Windows):

$ npm install -g canvas

Note: You can install the packages locally by omitting the -g switch, but for ease of use it's recommended to install them globally.

Usage

First you need access to Landscape within Stylus, this can be done with the Stylus executable or programatically.

Stylus executable

$ stylus --use landscape mytheme.styl

For more info, see Stylus docs.

Programatically

var landscape = require('landscape');
...
stylus.use(landscape());

Customize the theme

Make a copy of the bootstrap theme and then change the variables inside config.styl to suite your needs. To make your app use your theme, just point it to your theme.styl file and Stylus should do the rest.

How to run the docs locally?

You will have to clone the git repo, since the docs are not included in the npm package.

$ git clone git@github.com:esnme/landscape.git

Also make sure you get the submodules.

$ git submodule update --init

Install all npm packages and then run app.js.

$ cd docs
$ docs/ npm update
$ docs/ node app.js

Note: If you're running Windows you will have to uncomment the canvas package in package.json.

Coding convention

Since Stylus is extremely lenient code-wise (you can omit braces, colons and semi-colos) we have put this tiny coding convention in place for Landscape:

  • All braces and semi-colons are omitted
  • Variables are prepended with ($) dollar-sign
  • Properties are appended with (:) colon

Example

$color = #aaa

.button
    color: $color
    padding: 4px 10px
