CSS Beautify

CSS Beautify is a JavaScript implementation of reindenter and reformatter for styles written in CSS.

Given the following style:

menu{color:red} navigation{background-color:#333}

CSS Beautify will produce:

menu {
    color: red
}

navigation {
    background-color: #333
}

Try it online at cssbeautify.com. For the command-line use, install Node.js cssbeautify package.

For more examples, see also its test suite.

Using cssbeautify() function

Since CSS Beautify is written in pure JavaScript, it can run anywhere that JavaScript can run.

The API is very simple:

var result = cssbeautify(style, options);

options is an optional object to adjust the formatting. Known options so far are:

  • indent is a string used for the indentation of the declaration (default is 4 spaces)
  • openbrace defines the placement of open curly brace, either end-of-line (default) or separate-line.
  • autosemicolon always inserts a semicolon after the last ruleset (default is false)

Example call:

var beautified = cssbeautify('menu{opacity:.7}', {
    indent: '  ',
    openbrace: 'separate-line',
    autosemicolon: true
});
