makeup

connect/express middleware for serving css provided by widgets via package.json:style field.

example

In our app/server/whatever.js

app.use('/css/widgets.css', makeup(__dirname + '/css/widgets.css'));

widgets.css would look similar to

@import "typeahead"

/* other css rules can go here */
.foo {}
.bar {}

Typeahead is a widget we installed via npm. It provides some javascript (ala commonjs style) and a base stylesheet. We want to use that base stylesheet and customize it for our needs.

Our widgets.css remains a valid css file. If passed through makeup, the @import statements will load any css which the typeahead module provided (via the package.json:style) field.

When we visit site.com/css/widgets.css we will be served a single css file with the rules for our typeahead widget.

All of the typeahead widget rules will be namespaced with .typeahead.

install

npm install makeup
