include-media Build Status

Simple, elegant and maintainable media queries in Sass

NPM badge


include-media is a Sass library for writing CSS media queries in an easy and maintainable way, using a natural and simplistic syntax.

2.0 Release

As of 2.0 include-media only supports sass (dart-sass) 1.25+ and no longer supports previous implementations of sass. eg lib-sass, ruby-sass.


I spent quite some time experimenting with different libraries and mixins available out there, but eventually all of them failed to do everything I needed in an elegant way. Some of them wouldn't let me mix set breakpoints with case-specific values, others wouldn't properly handle the CSS OR operator and most of them had a syntax that I found complicated and unnatural.

include-media was the result of that experience and it includes all the features I wish I had found before, whilst maintaining a simplistic and natural syntax.

How to install

  • With npm: npm install include-media
  • With yarn: yarn add include-media
  • With Bower: bower install include-media
  • With Rails: gem 'include_media_rails' (maintained by KaoruDev)
  • Manually: get this file

Finally, include the file in your project using an @import statement.
