Convert stylus to css real time. Easily used with any web framwork.

It depends on the Python Stylus:

And the Python Stylus depends on Node and Stylus

So you need install nodejs and stylus node package before .


pip install live-stylus


For example , in a flask project :

from flask import Flask
from live_stylus import ConvStylus

app = Flask(__name__)

from views import *

if __name__ == "__main__":
    app.debug = True

In a bottle project :

from bottle import route, run, template
from live_stylus import ConvStylus

def index(name='World'):
    return template('<b>Hello {{name}}</b>!', name=name)

if __name__ == "__main__":
    run(host='localhost', port=8080)

Then when you modify a .styl file , it will be converted to a same name css file immediately. eg. css/global.styl => css/global.css

If you use other web framwork , just put the ConvStylus() before the .run() or .start() code.

If you want monitor a explicitly directoty's stylus file , you can use:
