Why use Styled Map?

Styled Map simplifies your components' CSS, making your code cleaner and clearer wherever you use props to alter styles.

Without Styled Map

With Styled Components alone, you'll often do something like this:

const Button = styled.button`
  color: ${props => props.primary ? '#0c0' : '#ccc'};
`;

but this quickly turns messy:

const Button = styled.button`
 color: ${props =>
   props.primary && '#0c0' ||
   props.warning && '#c00' ||
   props.info && '#0cc' ||
   '#ccc'
 };
 border: 2px solid ${props =>
   props.primary && '#0c0' ||
   props.warning && '#c00' ||
   props.info && '#0cc' ||
   '#ccc'
 };
 font-size: ${props =>
   props.small && '8px' ||
   props.medium && '18px' ||
   props.large && '32px' ||
   '16px'
 };
`;

<Button primary large>Submit</Button>

With Styled Map

Here's the same component using styled-map:

import styledMap from 'styled-map';

const buttonColor = styledMap`
  primary: #0c0;
  warning: #c00;
  info: #0cc;
  default: #ccc;
`;

const Button = styled.button`
  color: ${buttonColor};
  border: 2px solid ${buttonColor};
  font-size: ${styledMap`
    large: 32px;
    small: 8px;
    medium: 18px;
    default: 16px;
  `};
`;

<Button primary large>Submit</Button>

Much better!

Note: If there are no matching props, styled-map will look for a "default" item in your map. If it doesn't find one it will use the last item by default.

Usage with themes

Styled Map makes mapping to themes incredibly easy with the mapToTheme function.

Simply set up your themes like this:

const myTheme = {
  buttonColor: {
    primary: 'orange',
    warning: 'red',
    info: 'blue',
    default: 'white',
  },
  ...
};

and now you can do this:

import styledMap, { mapToTheme as theme } from 'styled-map';

const Button = styled.button`
  color: ${theme('buttonColor')};
  border: 2px solid ${theme('buttonColor')};
`;

Note: importing as theme is optional, but it reads a lot better!

Nested theme objects

Nested objects can be refered to with dots, so you can write theme('colors.button') if your theme looks like this:

const theme = {
  colors: {
    button: {
      primary: '#b00',
      info: '#0b0',
      etc: '#00f',
    }
  }
}

Optionally mapping to prop values

Sometimes you'll want to map styles to the value of a prop instead of using prop keys. This is especially useful if you have something like a type variable to pass to your component and you don't want to do something like <Button {...{[type]:true}} />.

You can use styled-map in these situations by simply passing a prop name as the first argument.

const Button = styled.button`
  background: ${styledMap('type', {
    primary: '#c00',
    default: '#ddd',
  })};
`;

styled-map will then look at the Button's type prop for a matching value.

This also works in mapToTheme:

import styledMap, { mapToTheme as theme } from 'styled-map';

const myTheme = {
  buttonColor: {
    primary: 'orange',
    warning: 'red',
    info: 'blue',
    default: 'white',
  },
  ...
};

const Button = styled.button`
  color: ${theme('buttonColor', 'kind')};
`;

<Button kind='warning'>Click</Button> // will be red

Note: This currently doesn't work with the pseudo-CSS syntax (new in v3.0). This functionality should arrive by v4.0. PRs welcome!:

Typings

StyledMap has TypeScript typings since version 3.2.0.
