Just trying to figure out something.
I would like to pass stylus code with the @import nib to some function from the nib module, and then get the
CSS code in return.
im not sure what you mean
I am building a small piece of script that I can use as an API for a particular service.
Basically, I would like to pass a piece of stylus code with nib to it (HTTP POST), for example:
background: linear-gradient(top, white, black);
Then in return I would like to get the CSS code rendered/generated.
The user will then be able to use the CSS code for some purpose.
Hope I made sense this time ?
So how would I go about doing this ? I could'nt find any option to use nib in the stylus's bin nor any method in the nib/stylus npm modules.
ah I see, I'm doing similar actually :)
well, so ... how would I go about doing it ? or is it not possible atm ?
If it's possible then let me know, so that I can integrate it.
It's just going to be an extra nice feature in my app.
random msg for a notification as we had talked about - --nib flag with @import 'nib' prepended to code ?
actually this might have to wait. ATM I can't think of any reasonable way to do this because npm install -g nib and require('nib') will still fail, so we can't (easily) access the path to nib
npm install -g nib
we also need the instructions how to use the stylus binary in the readme. what works for me is specified on the bottom of the stylus executable doc page:
_npm_prefix=$(npm prefix -g)
stylus $filepath.styl --use $_npm_prefix/lib/node_modules/nib/lib/nib
