JSS

Gitter Build Status codecov OpenCollective OpenCollective

JSS is a more powerful abstraction over CSS. It uses JavaScript as a language to describe styles in a declarative and maintainable way. It is a high performance JS to CSS compiler which works at runtime and server-side. This core library is low level and framework agnostic. It is about 6KB (minified and gzipped) and is extensible via plugins API.

Feel free to ask any JSS related questions on twitter by using hashtag #cssinjs and mentioning @oleg008, watch my latest talk about "Unique Value Proposition of CSSinJS" and try it on a playground.

If you are a Sass (SCSS) user, this course will show how to express popular Sass language features using latest JavaScript features: Convert SCSS (Sass) to CSS-in-JS.

Example

Try it out on playground. You need to setup plugins before. You can use a preset for a quick setup with default plugins.

import jss from 'jss'
import preset from 'jss-preset-default'
import color from 'color'

// One time setup with default plugins and settings.
jss.setup(preset())

const styles = {
  button: {
    fontSize: 12,
    '&:hover': {
      background: 'blue'
    }
  },
  ctaButton: {
    extend: 'button',
    '&:hover': {
      background: color('blue')
        .darken(0.3)
        .hex()
    }
  },
  '@media (min-width: 1024px)': {
    button: {
      width: 200
    }
  }
}

const {classes} = jss.createStyleSheet(styles).attach()

document.body.innerHTML = `
  <button class="${classes.button}">Button</button>
  <button class="${classes.ctaButton}">CTA Button</button>
`

Result

<head>
  <style>
    .button-123456 {
      font-size: 12px;
    }
    .button-123456:hover {
      background: blue;
    }
    .ctaButton-789012 {
      font-size: 12px;
    }
    .ctaButton-789012:hover {
      background: red;
    }
    @media (min-width: 1024px) {
      .button-123456 {
        min-width: 200px;
      }
    }
  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <button class="button-123456">Button</button>
  <button class="ctaButton-789012">CTA Button</button>
</body>

When should I use it?

  • You build a JavaScript heavy application.
  • You use components based architecture.
  • You build a reusable UI library.
  • You need a collision free CSS (external content, third-party UI components ...).
  • You need code sharing between js and css.
  • Minimal download size is important to you.
  • Robustness and code reuse is important to you.
  • Ease of maintenance is important to you.
  • You just want to use any of its benefits
