Installation

npm install --save-dev ios-dynamic-type

With Git

git clone https://github.com/tachyons-css/ios-dynamic-type

Usage

Using with PostCSS

Import the css module

@import "ios-dynamic-type";

Then process the CSS using the tachyons-cli

$ npm i -g tachyons-cli
$ tachyons-cli path/to/css-file.css > dist/t.css

Using the CSS

The built CSS is located in the css directory. It contains an unminified and minified version. You can either cut and paste that css or link to it directly in your html.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/module/css/ios-dynamic-type">

Development

The source CSS files can be found in the src directory. Running $ npm start will process the source CSS and place the built CSS in the css directory.

The CSS

/*

  iOS SYSTEM FONTS

  For utilitizing the adaptive type behavior that is available on iOS devices.

*/
html, body { font-family: -apple-system; }

  "Going beyond the system font, iOS has dynamic type behavior, which can provide
  an additional level of fit and finish to your content. These text styles
  identify more than simply a particular font family; instead, they represent an
  entire style, including size and weight. These styles are therefore
  characterized by values given to the more-general font CSS property."

  Below are single purpose classes for using adaptive type on the web. This will only
  work for iOS devices so you'll likely want some fall-backs.
