Convert SharePoint spcolor-files to Sass partials

Build Status


Install package with NPM and add it to your development dependencies:

npm install --save-dev gulp-spcolor2scss

Basic usage

1. Use gulp to convert your spcolor file to a scss partial

'use strict';

var gulp = require('gulp');
var sass = require('gulp-sass');
var header = require('gulp-header');
var spcolor2scss = require('gulp-spcolor2scss');

gulp.task('spcolor', function() {
    return gulp.src('./themes/custom.spcolor', { buffer: true })
        .pipe(header("//\n// This file is autogenerated. Do not edit!\n//\n"))        

gulp.task('css', ['spcolor'], function() {
    return gulp.src('./sass/**/*.scss')
        .pipe(sass().on('error', sass.logError))

2. Import the generated partial to you sass file

// Original spcolor file was named 'custom.spcolor'
// It has been renamed to "_custom_spcolor.scss" by the plugin
@import "custom_spcolor";

3. Use the generated sass variables in your styles

The plugin prefixes all spcolor variable names with 'spcolor_' in order to avoid collisions with other variables you might be using.

body {
    background-color: $spcolor_PageBackground;
    color: $spcolor_BodyText;
    font-family: arial, sans-serif;

h1 {
    color: $spcolor_HeaderText;
