Atom editor plugin to sort CSS rules content with specified order. The following syntaxes are currently supported: CSS, SASS/SCSS and PostCSS (aka SugarSS).


$ apm install postcss-sorting

or open Atom and go to Preferences > Install and search for postcss-sorting package.


You can select one of the bundled presets: default, csscomb, yandex and zen.

If any of the following config files exist, they will override the selected preset. They are loaded in the following order of priority:

  1. .postcss-sorting.json or postcss-sorting.json at the root of your project

  2. A "postcssSortingConfig": { ... } object in your project package.json

  3. Custom ~/path/to/your/config.json (if specified in package settings)

  4. ~/.postcss-sorting.json or ~/postcss-sorting.json file in your HOME directory

Files can be processed "On Save" (not enabled by default).

"On Save" can be disabled if no config file is present (not enabled by default).

Notifications can also be disabled from the package settings.


In a CSS or PostCSS file, open the Command Palette (Cmd + Shift + P (OS X), Ctrl + Shift + P (Windows/Linux)) and choose PostCSS Sorting: Run.

Keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + S

If you have an "On Save" option enabled and "Check for config file" option disabled just save a file.


This plugin is based on the postcss-sorting plugin by Aleks Hudochenkov
