Garnish

Garnish for your Sassy CSS cocktails. Use it on top of Bourbon, or have it raw.

Installation

  1. Install with bower install garnish or download as zip
  2. Include Garnish in your code with @include "src/garnish"

Features

Garnish is a collection of Sass mixins and functions designed to make your life a tiny bit easier.

When you first import Garnish into your project, it doesn’t add any additional code to it. Garnish is a toolbox, and you only use what you want. It doesn’t contain any pre-defined styles, and makes no decisions for you.

Feature Index


Helpers

Grayscale Colours

Function that outputs gray colours based on percentage of lightness.

// SCSS
.margarita-salt { color: gray(40%); }
.olive          { color: gray(97%); }

// CSS
.margarita-salt { color: #666666; }
.olive          { color: #f7f7f7; }

Combined Hover/Focus styles

Be nice to keyboard users. The hover block mixin wraps your rules in :hover and :focus states.

// SCSS
.mint {
  color: #4183C4;
  @include hover { color: #333333; }
}

// CSS
.mint {
  color: #4183C4;
}
.mint:hover,
.mint:focus {
  color: #333333;
}

Readable Media Queries

Friendly media queries with media-upto, media-between, and media-from block mixins.

// SCSS
.cherry-jar-title {
  @include media-upto(500px)            { font-size: 14px; }
  @include media-between(500px, 900px)  { font-size: 18px; }
  @include media-from(900px)            { font-size: 22px; }
}

// Output
@media screen and (max-width: 499px) {
  .cherry-jar-title { font-size: 14px; }
}

@media screen and (min-width: 500px) and (max-width: 899px) {
  .cherry-jar-title { font-size: 18px; }
}

@media screen and (min-width: 900px) {
  .cherry-jar-title { font-size: 22px; }
}

Layout

Simple Grid

Makes a percentage-based grid in one mixin call, with optional vertical gutter (3% by default). Columns must be children of the element within which the mixin is called from.

// Make a 4 column grid with 3% gutters (horizontal and vertical)
.container {
  @include simple-grid(4);
}
// Make a 6 column grid with 5% gutters, floated to the left without vertical gutter
.container {
  @include simple-grid(6, 5%, left, false);
}
```

#### Side Margin, Side Padding, Centering

Short syntax mixins for either horizontal or vertical margin/padding, but not both.

* `padding-h($value)`
* `padding-v($value)`
* `margin-h($value)`
* `margin-v($value)`
* `centered`, i.e. `margin-h(auto)`

Example:

```scss
/* Using Garnish */
.box {
  @include padding-h(1em);
}

/* Alternative: two declarations */
.box {
  padding-left: 1em;
  padding-right: 1em;
}

/* Alternative: single declaration, but with vertical values */
.box {
  padding: 0 1em;
}
```

### Style

#### Border Sandwich

Helps to create top and bottom dividers on a series of elements of the same type.

```SCSS
// SCSS
.pineapple-wedges {
  @include border-sandwich(1px solid #F0AE3D);
}

// Set the $breadless to true to remove outer borders
.lemon-wedges {
  @include border-sandwich(1px solid #FCF54C, true);
}

//CSS
.pineapple-wedges                 { border-bottom:  1px solid #F0AE3D; }
.pineapple-wedges:first-of-type   { border-top:     1px solid #F0AE3D; }

.lemon-wedges:not(:first-of-type) { border-top:     1px solid #FCF54C; }
```

**Default Border Sandwich:**

\----------------------------  
  :pineapple: wedge  
\----------------------------  
  :pineapple: wedge  
\----------------------------  
  :pineapple: wedge  
\----------------------------  


**Breadless Border Sandwich:**

  :lemon: wedge  
\----------------------------  
  :lemon: wedge  
\----------------------------  
  :lemon: wedge  


**Browser Support:**
* Desktop: Chrome 1.0+, Firefox 3.5+, IE 9.0+, Opera 9.5+, Safari 3.2+  
* Mobile: Android 2.1+, Firefox Mobile 1.0+, IE Mobile 9.0+, Opera Mobile 10.0+, Safari Mobile 3.2+

### Typography

#### Weights

Keyword-based font-weight function. Based on Typekit’s most weight-rich typefaces.

```scss
// SCSS
strong {
  font-weight: weight(semibold);
}

// Output
strong {
  font-weight: 600;
}
```

Reference:

| Keyword             | Weight |
| ------------------- | ------ |
| `thin`              | 100    |
| `extralight`        | 200    |
| `light`             | 300    |
| `book` or `regular` | 400    |
| `medium`            | 500    |
| `semibold`          | 600    |
| `bold`              | 700    |
| `extrabold`         | 800    |
| `black`             | 900    |

#### Hyphenation

Add all the vendor prefixes for hyphenation easily. 

```scss
// SCSS
.cocktail-description { @include hyphenated; }
.cocktail-title-long { @include hyphenated(manual); }

// Output
.cocktail-description {
  -webkit-hyphens: auto;
     -moz-hyphens: auto;
      -ms-hyphens: auto;
          hyphens: auto;
}
.cocktail-title-long {
  -webkit-hyphens: manual;
     -moz-hyphens: manual;
      -ms-hyphens: manual;
          hyphens: manual;
}
```

## Development

### Guidelines

- Garnish **should be** library-agnostic, but it **should not** replicate Bourbon’s functionality.
- Garnish **should not** produce any output unless its functions and mixins are used.
- Garnish **should not** make style decisions or assumptions. Defaults are OK, but allow configuration.
