Turbine is a collection of PHP-powered tools that are designed to decrease css development time and web developer headache. This includes:

  • A new, minmal syntax – the less you have have to type, the more you get done
  • Packing, gzipping and automatic minification of multiple style files
  • Constants (also known as "css variables") and selector aliases as well as nested css selectors
  • Oop-like inheritance, extension and templating features
  • Built-in device-, browser- and os sniffing
  • Many automatic bugfixes and enhancements for older browsers
  • Fully exensible through a very simple plugin system. A basic understanding of PHP is enough to add completely new features to Turbine
  • A CSS to Turbine converter and a shell app for experiments and development


Turbine takes this...

        margin, padding:4px

and turns it into:

#foo {
    color: red;
#foo, #foo {
    margin: 4px;
    padding: 4px;
    -moz-border-radius: 4px;
    -khtml-border-radius: 4px;
    -webkit-border-radius: 4px;
    border-radius: 4px;

It is somewhat compareable to Sass and Scaffold, but more radically geared towards getting as much done as possible in as few keystrokes as possible.
