This is a Perl 6 module for parsing CSS property definitions.

These are widely used throughout the W3C CSS Specifications to describe properties. The syntax is described in http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/about.html#property-defs.

An example, from http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/propidx.html:

'content'	normal
           | none
           | [  <string> | <uri> | <counter> | attr(<identifier>)
              | open-quote | close-quote | no-open-quote | no-close-quote
           | inherit

Grammars and Classes

  • CSS::Specification::Build is class for generating Perl 6 grammar, actions or roles from sets of CSS property definitions.

This module also provides some mixin grammars and actions as follows:

  • CSS::Specification::Terms + CSS::Specification::Terms::Actions - is a grammar which maps property specification terminology to CSS Core syntax and defines any newly introduced terms. For example integer is mapped to int.


This module provides css-gen-properties. A program for translating property definitions to grammars, actions or interface classes.
