Load Config

Install

npm i -D postcss-load-config

Usage

npm i -S|-D postcss-plugin

Install plugins and save them to your package.json dependencies/devDependencies.

package.json

Create postcss section in your projects package.json.

App
  |– client
  |– public
  |
  |- package.json
{
  "postcss": {
    "parser": "sugarss",
    "map": false,
    "from": "/path/to/src.sss",
    "to": "/path/to/dest.css",
    "plugins": {
      "postcss-plugin": {}
    }
  }
}

.postcssrc

Create a .postcssrc file.

App
  |– client
  |– public
  |
  |-.postcssrc
  |- package.json
{
  "parser": "sugarss",
  "map": false,
  "from": "/path/to/src.sss",
  "to": "/path/to/dest.css",
  "plugins": {
    "postcss-plugin": {}
  }
}

postcss.config.js

Create a postcss.config.js file.

App
  |– client
  |– public
  |
  |- postcss.config.js
  |- package.json
module.exports = (ctx) => ({
  parser: ctx.parser ? 'sugarss' : false,
  map: ctx.env === 'development' ? ctx.map : false,
  from: ctx.from
  to: ctx.to
  plugins: {
    'postcss-plugin': ctx.plugin
  }
})

Plugins can be loaded in either using an {Object} or an {Array}.

{Object}
module.exports = (ctx) => ({
  ...options
  plugins: {
    'postcss-plugin': ctx.plugin
  }
})
{Array}
module.exports = (ctx) => ({
  ...options
  plugins: [
    require('postcss-plugin')(ctx.plugin)
  ]
})

⚠️ When using an Array, make sure to require() them.

Options

parser:

'parser': 'sugarss'

syntax:

'syntax': 'postcss-scss'

stringifier:

'stringifier': 'midas'

map:

'map': 'inline'

from:

from: 'path/to/src.css'

to:

to: 'path/to/dest.css'

Plugins

Options

{} || null: Plugin loads with defaults.

'postcss-plugin': {} || null

⚠️ {} must be an empty object

[Object]: Plugin loads with given options.

'postcss-plugin': { option: '', option: '' }

false: Plugin will not be loaded.

'postcss-plugin': false

Order

Plugin order is determined by declaration in the plugins section.

{
  plugins: {
    'postcss-plugin': {}, // plugins[0]
    'postcss-plugin': {}, // plugins[1]
    'postcss-plugin': {}  // plugins[2]
  }
}

Context

When using a function (postcss.config.js), it is possible to pass context to postcss-load-config, which will be evaluated while loading your config. By default ctx.env (process.env.NODE_ENV) and ctx.cwd (process.cwd()) are available.

Examples

postcss.config.js

module.exports = (ctx) => ({
  parser: ctx.parser ? 'sugarss' : false,
  map: ctx.env === 'development' ? ctx.map : false,
  plugins: {
    'postcss-import': {},
    'postcss-nested': {},
    cssnano: ctx.env === 'production' ? {} : false
  }
})

"scripts": {
  "build": "NODE_ENV=production node postcss",
  "start": "NODE_ENV=development node postcss"
}
const { readFileSync } = require('fs')

const postcss = require('postcss')
const postcssrc = require('postcss-load-config')

const css = readFileSync('index.sss', 'utf8')

const ctx = { parser: true, map: 'inline' }

postcssrc(ctx).then(({ plugins, options }) => {
  postcss(plugins)
    .process(css, options)
    .then((result) => console.log(result.css))
})

"scripts": {
  "build": "NODE_ENV=production gulp",
  "start": "NODE_ENV=development gulp"
}
const { task, src, dest, series, watch } = require('gulp')

const postcss = require('gulp-postcssrc')

const css = () => {
  src('src/*.css')
    .pipe(postcss())
    .pipe(dest('dest'))
})

task('watch', () => {
  watch(['src/*.css', 'postcss.config.js'], css)
})

task('default', series(css, 'watch'))

"scripts": {
  "build": "NODE_ENV=production webpack",
  "start": "NODE_ENV=development webpack-dev-server"
}
module.exports = (env) => ({
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        test: /\.css$/
        use: [
          'style-loader',
          {
            loader: 'css-loader',
            options: { importLoaders: 1 } }
          },
          'postcss-loader'
        ]
      }
    ]
  }
})
