Why injectCSS?

  • The primary goal was to create an easy way to include multi-line (lots) of CSS using Javascript.
  • Can reduce number of files in a JS plugin or project (My goal was one).
  • A test run at jsperf.com shows that injecting CSS rules for a vast number of elements is very fast: http://jsperf.com/inject-vs-apply/2

How to use

With RequireJS

require(['injectCSS'], function(injectCSS) {
	injectCSS(function(){/*
		.case1 {
			border: 3px solid #0f0;
		}
	*/});
	injectCSS('.case2 { border: 3px solid #00f; } ');
});

On it's own with no dependencies

<!DOCTYPE html>
<head>
	<script src="injectCSS.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
	<div class="test case1">test case 1</div>
	<div class="test case2">test case 2</div>
<script>
	(function(){
		injectCSS(function(){/*
			.case1 {
				border: 3px solid #0f0;
			}
		*/});
		injectCSS('.case2 { border: 3px solid #00f; } ');
	})();
</script>
</body>
</html>

Compatability

Tested successfully on:

  • Chrome (+mobile)
  • Firefox
  • Safari (+mobile)
  • IE 10+

Due to the older IE browsers not allowing the innerHTML property to be set on certain elements, this will not work in them.
