postcss-calc Build Status

PostCSS plugin to reduce calc().

This plugin reduce calc() references whenever it's possible. This can be particularly useful with the postcss-custom-properties plugin.

Note: When multiple units are mixed together in the same expression, the calc() statement is left as is, to fallback to the w3c calc() feature.

Installation

$ npm install postcss-calc

Usage

// dependencies
var fs = require("fs")
var postcss = require("postcss")
var calc = require("postcss-calc")

// css to be processed
var css = fs.readFileSync("input.css", "utf8")

// process css
var output = postcss()
  .use(calc())
  .process(css)
  .css

Example (with postcss-custom-properties enabled as well):

// dependencies
var fs = require("fs")
var postcss = require("postcss")
var customProperties = require("postcss-custom-properties")
var calc = require("postcss-calc")

// css to be processed
var css = fs.readFileSync("input.css", "utf8")

// process css
var output = postcss()
  .use(customProperties())
  .use(calc())
  .process(css)
  .css

Using this input.css:

:root {
  --main-font-size: 16px;
}

body {
  font-size: var(--main-font-size);
}

h1 {
  font-size: calc(var(--main-font-size) * 2);
  height: calc(100px - 2em);
  margin-bottom: calc(
      var(--main-font-size)
      * 1.5
    )
}

you will get:

body {
  font-size: 16px
}

h1 {
  font-size: 32px;
  height: calc(100px - 2em);
  margin-bottom: 24px
}

Checkout tests for more examples.

Options

precision (default: 5)

Allow you to definine the precision for decimal numbers.

var out = postcss()
  .use(calc({precision: 10}))
  .process(css)
  .css

preserve (default: false)

Allow you to preserve calc() usage in output so browsers will handle decimal precision themselves.

var out = postcss()
  .use(calc({preserve: true}))
  .process(css)
  .css

Adds warnings when calc() are not reduced to a single value.

var out = postcss()
  .use(calc({warnWhenCannotResolve: true}))
  .process(css)
  .css

mediaQueries (default: false)

Allows calc() usage as part of media query declarations.

var out = postcss()
  .use(calc({mediaQueries: true}))
  .process(css)
