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.

Installation

Just add 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.

Folders

By default, stylus_rails will compile all files at public/stylesheets/stylus to the public/stylesheets folder. For instance, public/stylesheets/stylus/application.styl would generate public/stylesheets/application.css.

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')

Sinatra

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 root and 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')

Rake task

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.

Partials

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 _vendor.styl:

border-radius()
  -webkit-border-radius arguments
  -moz-border-radius arguments
  border-radius arguments

And a application.styl

@import '_mixins'
.button
  border-radius 5px

Stylus will compile your application.styl into a application.css and your _vendor.styl will be ignored.

Error Handling

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
