About

AbsurdJS was started as CSS preprocessor, but later it was expanded to a HTML preprocessor. So, at the moment you could transform:

  • JavaScript, JSON, YAML, CSS to CSS
  • JavaScript, JSON, YAML to HTML

Usage

	var api = Absurd();
	api.add({
		body: {
			marginTop: "20px",
			p: {
				color: "#000"
			}
		}
	});
	api.compile(function(err, css) {
		// use the compiled css
	});
