Build Status


Stylus mixins, utilities, components, and gradient image generation. Don't forget to check out the documentation.


$ npm install nib

If the image generation features of Nib are desired, such as generating the linear gradient images, install node-canvas:

$ npm install canvas

JavaScript API

Below is an example of how to utilize nib and stylus with the connect framework (or express).

var connect = require('connect')
  , stylus = require('stylus')
  , nib = require('nib');

var server = connect();

function compile(str, path) {
  return stylus(str)
    .set('filename', path)
    .set('compress', true)

    src: __dirname
  , compile: compile

Stylus API

To gain access to everything nib has to offer, simply add:

  @import 'nib'

Or you may also pick and choose based on the directory structure in ./lib, for example:

  @import 'nib/gradients'
  @import 'nib/overflow'
  @import 'nib/normalize'

To be continued...
