rework

CSS manipulations built on node-css, allowing you to automate vendor prefixing, create your own properties, inline images, anything you can imagine!

Installation

$ npm install rework

API

rework(css)

Return a new Rework instance for the given string of css.

Rework#vendors(prefixes)

Define vendor prefixes that plugins may utilize, however most plugins do and should accept direct passing of vendor prefixes as well.

Rework#use(fn)

Use the given plugin fn. A rework "plugin" is simply a function accepting the stylesheet object and Rework instance, view the definitions in ./lib/plugins for examples.

Rework#toString()

Return the string representation of the manipulated css.

Plugins

The following plugins are bundled with rework:

.at2x([vendors])

Add retina support for images, with optional vendor prefixes, defaulting to .vendors().

logo {
  background-image: url('/public/images/logo.png')
}

yields:

logo {
  background-image: url('/public/images/logo.png')
}

@media all and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 1.5) {
  .logo {
    background-image: url("/public/images/logo@2x.png")
  }
}

.prefix(property, [vendors])

Prefix property with optional vendors defaulting to .vendors().

.button {
  border-radius: 5px;
}

yields:

.button {
  -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
  -moz-border-radius: 5px;
  border-radius: 5px;
}

.prefixValue(value, [vendors])

Prefix value with optional vendors defaulting to .vendors().

button {
  transition: height, transform 2s, width 0.3s linear;
}

yields:

button {
  -webkit-transition: height, -webkit-transform 2s, width 0.3s linear;
  -moz-transition: height, -moz-transform 2s, width 0.3s linear;
  transition: height, transform 2s, width 0.3s linear
}

.prefixSelectors(string)

Prefix selectors with the given string.

h1 {
  font-weight: bold;
}

a {
  text-decoration: none;
  color: #ddd;
}

yields:

#dialog h1 {
  font-weight: bold;
}

#dialog a {
  text-decoration: none;
  color: #ddd;
}

.opacity()

Add IE opacity support.

ul {
  opacity: 1 !important;
}

yields:

ul {
  opacity: 1 !important;
  -ms-filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Alpha(Opacity=100) !important;
  filter: alpha(opacity=100) !important
}

.keyframes([vendors])

Prefix @keyframes with vendors defaulting to .vendors(). Ordering with .keyframes() is important, as other plugins may traverse into the newly generated rules, for example the following will allow .prefix() to prefix keyframe border-radius property, .prefix() is also smart about which keyframes definition it is within, and will not add extraneous vendor definitions.

var css = rework(read('examples/keyframes.css', 'utf8'))
  .vendors(['-webkit-', '-moz-'])
  .use(rework.keyframes())
  .use(rework.prefix('border-radius'))
  .toString()
@keyframes animation {
  from {
    opacity: 0;
  }

  to {
    opacity: 1;
  }
}

yields:

@keyframes animation {
  from {
    opacity: 0;
  }

  to {
    opacity: 1;
  }
}

@-webkit-keyframes animation {
  from {
    opacity: 0;
  }

  to {
    opacity: 1;
  }
}

Example

example.js:

var rework = require('rework')
  , read = require('fs').readFileSync
  , str = read('example.css', 'utf8');

var css = rework(str)
  .vendors(['-webkit-', '-moz-'])
  .use(rework.keyframes())
  .use(rework.prefix('border-radius'))
  .toString()

console.log(css);

example.css:

@keyframes animation {
  from { opacity: 0; border-radius: 5px }
  to { opacity: 1; border-radius: 5px }
}

stdout:

@keyframes animation {
  from {
    opacity: 0;
    border-radius: 5px
  }

  to {
    opacity: 1;
    border-radius: 5px
  }
}

@-webkit-keyframes animation {
  from {
    opacity: 0;
    -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
    border-radius: 5px
  }

  to {
    opacity: 1;
    -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
    border-radius: 5px
  }
}

@-moz-keyframes animation {
  from {
    opacity: 0;
    -moz-border-radius: 5px;
    border-radius: 5px
  }

  to {
    opacity: 1;
    -moz-border-radius: 5px;
    border-radius: 5px
  }
}

Example Plugin

Suppose for example you wanted to create your own properties for positions, allowing you to write them as follows:

#logo {
  absolute: top left;
}

#logo {
  relative: top 5px left;
}

#logo {
  fixed: top 5px left 10px;
}

yielding:

#logo {
  position: absolute;
  top: 0;
  left: 0
}

#logo {
  position: relative;
  top: 5px;
  left: 0
}

#logo {
  position: fixed;
  top: 5px;
  left: 10px
}

This is how you could define the plugin:

var rework = require('rework')
  , read = require('fs').readFileSync;

function positions() {
  var positions = ['absolute', 'relative', 'fixed'];

  return function(style){
    style.rules.forEach(function(rule){
      rule.declarations.forEach(function(decl, i){
        if (!~positions.indexOf(decl.property)) return;
        var args = decl.value.split(/\s+/);
        var arg, n;

        // remove original
        rule.declarations.splice(i, 1);

        // position prop
        rule.declarations.push({
          property: 'position',
          value: decl.property
        });

        // position
        while (args.length) {
          arg = args.shift();
          n = parseFloat(args[0]) ? args.shift() : 0;
          rule.declarations.push({
            property: arg,
            value: n
          });
        }

      });
    });
  }
}

var css = rework(read('positions.css', 'utf8'))
  .use(positions())
  .toString()

console.log(css);
