First install Node.js for the build process. Now install all the dependencies, run
npm install from the project directory. Once you have the dependencies installed, run
npm start. This will run the build task which compiles the Sass files into Milligram.css file in the expanded and compressed version.
Milligram use Sass to give super powers to CSS. Look at how the code is being maintained, we must always be consistent. We try to follow best practices as much as possible. In addition, here are some tips you should follow:
- Properties and selectors are sorted in alphabetical order
- Always use tab to indentation, no spaces
- Always use single quote, i.e.
- Quote attribute values in selectors, i.e.
- Avoid specifying units for zero-values, i.e.
remunit instead of
- Use lowercase and shorthand hex values, i.e.
- Use one discrete selector per line in multi-selector rulesets
- Include a single space after colon and after each comma
- Separate each ruleset by a blank line
- Don't use prefixes, there is a task to generate this automatically
.selector-a, .selector-b, .selector-c, .selector-d[type='text'] box-sizing: border-box color: #333 content: '' display: inline-block font-family: 'Helvetica-Neue', 'Helvetica', 'Arial', sans-serif margin-bottom: 0 margin-left: 5.0rem .other-selector-a background: #fff .other-selector-b background: #fff &.increasing-the-specificity color: #000
Note: This style guide was inspired by Idiomatic.css. Milligram uses an
.editorconfig file, which most editors support, to enforce these coding standards.
Breaking CSS is easy. Checking every responsive page element is hard. That's why Milligram uses automated visual regression testing for responsive web UI by comparing DOM screenshots at various viewport sizes. To view the comparison run
npm test after making changes to the source code.
