  rootValue: 100,

  • rootValue (Number|Object) The root element font size. Default is 100.
    • If rootValue is an object, for example { px: 50, rpx: 100 }, it will replace rpx to 1/100 rem , and px to 1/50 rem.
  • unitPrecision (Number) The decimal numbers to allow the REM units to grow to.
  • propWhiteList (Array) The properties that can change from px to rem.
    • Default is an empty array that means disable the white list and enable all properties.
    • Values need to be exact matches.
  • propBlackList (Array) The properties that should not change from px to rem.
    • Values need to be exact matches.
  • exclude (Reg) a way to exclude some folder,eg. /(node_module)/.
  • selectorBlackList (Array) The selectors to ignore and leave as px.
    • If value is string, it checks to see if selector contains the string.
      • ['body'] will match .body-class
    • If value is regexp, it checks to see if the selector matches the regexp.
      • [/^body$/] will match body but not .body
  • ignoreIdentifier (Boolean/String) a way to have a single property ignored, when ignoreIdentifier enabled, then replace would be set to true automatically.
  • replace (Boolean) replaces rules containing rems instead of adding fallbacks.
  • mediaQuery (Boolean) Allow px to be converted in media queries.
  • minPixelValue (Number) Set the minimum pixel value to replace.
