Markup and styles that feel right.

Please check the reshadow.dev website to get more information and examples.

reshadow provides the Shadow DOM developer experience, but for the Virtual DOM with the Component way.

import React from 'react';
import styled, {css} from 'reshadow';

// Write styles:
const styles = css`
    button {
        width: 200px;
    }
    content {
        font-size: 14px;
    }
`;

export const Button = ({children, ...props}) => {
    // connect the styles to the markup:
    return styled(styles)(
        <button {...props}>
            <content as="span">{children}</content>
        </button>,
    );
};

This project has alpha status, so the API and the implementation could be changed.

Features

  • Get away from additional abstractions
    • Write isolated semantic styles for the Virtual DOM in a native like way
    • Match styles on the elements, components, and props. That's all you need
  • Compile-time styles processing and efficient runtime
  • Static styles extracting options
  • Static analysis
  • Combine the css-in-js and css-modules approaches or choose which fits you better
  • All the benefits of the PostCSS ecosystem
  • Interoperable. Use it with components in React, Preact, Vue, htm.

There are some examples on the Сodesandbox:

Benchmarks

There are also some css-in-js benchmarks, that are available on the codesandbox.

Example

import React from 'react';
import styled from 'reshadow';
import {readableColor, rgba} from 'polished';

const Button = ({
    bgcolor = 'lightgray',
    size = 's',
    children,
    ...props
}) => styled`
    button {
        cursor: pointer;
        padding: 5px 10px;
        border-radius: 5px;
        border: 2px solid ${bgcolor};
        background-color: ${rgba(bgcolor, 0.7)};
        color: ${readableColor(bgcolor)};
        transition: background-color 0.5s;

        &:hover {
            background-color: ${rgba(bgcolor, 0.9)};
        }
    }

    /**
     * Match on the 'disabled' prop,
     * not the DOM attribute
     **/
    button[disabled] {
        opacity: 0.5;
        pointer-events: none;
    }

    /**
     * Match on the 'use:size' prop
     */
    button[use|size='s'] {
        font-size: 12px;
    }

    /* The 'use' namespace can be omitted */
    button[|size='m'] {
        font-size: 14px;
    }
`(
    /* use:size property would not pass to the DOM */
    <button {...props} use:size={size}>
        {children}
    </button>,
);
const Container = () => styled`
    Button + Button {
        margin-left: 10px;
    }
`(
    <div>
        <Button size="m" bgcolor="lightgray">
            lightgray
        </Button>
        <Button size="m" bgcolor="orange">
            orange
        </Button>
        <Button size="m" bgcolor="rebeccapurple">
            rebeccapurple
        </Button>
    </div>,
);

Usage

css-modules

Button/index.js

import React from 'react';
import styled from 'reshadow';

import styles from './styles.css';

export const Button = ({size, children}) => styled(styles)(
    <button use:size={size}>{children}</button>,
);

Button/styles.css

button {
    /* button styles */
}
button[|size='m'] {
    /* button styles for the size */
}

css-in-js

import React from 'react';
import styled, {css} from 'reshadow';

const anotherStyles = css`
    button[disabled] {
        /* disabled button styles */
    }
`;

export const Button = ({size, children}) => styled(
    props.another && anotherStyles,
)`
    button {
        /* button styles */
    }
    button[|size='m'] {
        /* button styles for the size */
    }
`(<button use:size={size}>{children}</button>);

Setup

Macro

With CRA 2 (Create React App) or babel-plugin-macros usage you can just use reshadow/macro out of the box.

import React from 'react';
import styled from 'reshadow/macro';

export const Button = ({children}) => styled`
    button {
        /* button styles */
    }
`(<button>{children}</button>);

Options (via babel-plugin-macros config) are the same as reshadow babel options, but with different defaults:

option default value
postcss true
files /.shadow.css$/

Babel

Add reshadow/babel to the plugin list.

babel.config.js

module.exports = {
    plugins: ['reshadow/babel'],
};

Options

option type default value description
postcss boolean | {plugins: Plugin[]} false Use PostCSS to process CSS code. You can add your custom PostCSS plugins (they should be sync)
files boolean | RegExp false Resolve and process css files imports that match to the RegExp
elementFallback boolean | string 'div' Use fallback for the custom elements

PostCSS

Add reshadow/postcss to the plugin list.

postcss.config.js

module.exports = {
    plugins: ['reshadow/postcss'],
};

Webpack

Use reshadow/webpack/loader to extract styles in separate files.

webpack.config.js

{
    test: /\.js$/,
    use: [
        'reshadow/webpack/loader',
        'babel-loader',
    ]
}

Linting

Use reshadow/eslint if you want to have more control about reshadow usage.

Rules:

Prettier

Use reshadow/prettier if you want to improve your Developer Experience with prettier.

prettier.config.js

module.exports = {
    plugins: ['reshadow/prettier'],
};

Special Thanks

You can’t perform that action at this time.
