"This is honestly my favourite way to build UI components right now party parrot"

Varun Vachhar

"If you haven't seen Styled System before, do yourself a favour and check it out. It's been a huge influence in my thinking on component-oriented styles."

Mark Dalgleish

"The future of css-in-js is going to look something like styled-system with its responsive values."

Kye Hohenberger

"Coming from @tachyons_css, the styled-system utilities from @jxnblk is the missing link I’ve been looking for."

Nathan Young

"If you make websites/apps with React check out Styled System if you haven't already. You will be amazed at how much faster you can build."

David Yeiser

"If you like Tachyons you will love styled-system. If you don't like Tachyons, you will love styled-system."

Usage

// Example uses styled-components, but styled-system works with most other css-in-js libraries as well
import styled from 'styled-components'
import { space, width, fontSize, color } from 'styled-system'

// Add styled-system functions to your component
const Box = styled.div`
  ${space}
  ${width}
  ${fontSize}
  ${color}
`

Each style function exposes its own set of component props that handle styles based on values defined in a theme.

// width: 50%
<Box width={1/2} />

// font-size: 20px (theme.fontSizes[4])
<Box fontSize={4} />

// margin: 16px (theme.space[2])
<Box m={2} />

// padding: 32px (theme.space[3])
<Box p={3} />

// color
<Box color='tomato' />

// color: #333 (theme.colors.gray[0])
<Box color='gray.0' />

// background color
<Box bg='tomato' />
