Stylus for Rails apps
A gem to compile your Stylus stylesheets in your ruby apps.
Rails 3.1? Sprockets and stuff?
Check the new stylus gem.
gem 'stylus_rails' To your
Gemfile. Rails will load the Stylus Railtie on your app on the development environment, and classic Sinatra applications will have an extension registered on your current application. On any other cenario you can run
Stylus.compile inside your ruby code.
stylus_rails will compile all files at
public/stylesheets/stylus to the
public/stylesheets folder. For instance,
public/stylesheets/stylus/application.styl would generate
To change this behavior, on Rails apps, you can drop some configurations in an initializer to override the default paths.
Stylus.root = File.join(Rails.root, 'app') Stylus.directory = 'stylus' Stylus.compile_directory = File.join(Rails.root, 'public', 'stylesheets')
We all love Sinatra, so we have a extension to your Sinatra applications.
When using classic applications, just requiring
stylus_rails will load the extension inside the Sinatra stack. When going modular, you will need to register it yourself.
require 'sinatra' require 'stylus_rails' class MyApp < Sinatra::Base register Stylus::Sinatra get '/' do 'oh hai' end end
You can also customize the
compile_directory options using the Sinatra settings:
# storing your .styl files in ./styl ... set :stylus_root, File.dirname(__FILE__) # and compiling to ./public/stylesheets set :stylus_directory, File.join(setting.public, 'stylesheets')
stylus_rails bundles a rake task
stylus:compile to recompile your
.styl files whenever necessary. Just add the following to your Rakefile:
require 'stylus_rails' load 'stylus_rails/tasks/compile.rake'
NOTE - This task is included automatically on Rails apps, so you don't need to do this.
stylus_rails will skip all files starting with
_, so you can use this naming convention on your partial files and import them on other files.
So, let's say that you have the following
border-radius() -webkit-border-radius arguments -moz-border-radius arguments border-radius arguments
@import '_mixins' .button border-radius 5px
Stylus will compile your
application.styl into a
application.css and your
_vendor.styl will be ignored.
If the stylus binary exits with error code 1 stylus_rails will throw an error exception. In case you don't want this the behaviour can be switched to silent by setting the following variable to false:
Stylus.silent = true
