Global Stylesheet example

This is an example of how you can include a global stylesheet in a next.js webapp.

How to use

Using create-next-app

Execute create-next-app with Yarn or npx to bootstrap the example:

npx create-next-app --example with-global-stylesheet with-global-stylesheet-app
# or
yarn create next-app --example with-global-stylesheet with-global-stylesheet-app

Download manually

Download the example or clone the repo:

curl https://codeload.github.com/zeit/next.js/tar.gz/canary | tar -xz --strip=2 next.js-canary/examples/with-global-stylesheet
cd with-global-stylesheet

To get this example running you just need to

npm install
npm run dev
# or
yarn dev

Visit http://localhost:3000 and try to modify styles/index.scss changing color. Your changes should be picked up instantly.

The idea behind the example

The strategy here is to transpile the stylesheet file to a css-in-js file so that it can be loaded and hot reloaded both on the server and the client. For this purpose I created a babel loader plugin called babel-loader-wrap-in-js.

Another babel plugin module-resolver enables us to import stylesheets from js (e.g. pages or components) through a styles directory alias rather than relative paths.

The sass-loader is configured with includePaths: ['styles', 'node_modules'] so that your scss can @import from those places, again without relative paths, for maximum convenience and ability to use npm-published libraries. Furthermore, glob paths are also supported, so one could for example add 'node_modules/@material/*' to the includePaths, which would make material-components-web (if you'd like) even easier to work with.

Furthermore, PostCSS is used to pre-process both css and scss stylesheets, the latter after Sass pre-processing. This is to illustrate @import 'normalize.css'; from node_modules thanks to postcss-easy-import. Autoprefixer is also added as a "best practice". Consider cssnext instead, which includes autoprefixer as well as many other CSS spec features.

This project shows how you can set it up. Have a look at:

  • .babelrc
  • next.config.js
  • pages/index.js
  • postcss.config.js
  • styles/index.scss

Please, report any issue on enhancement related to this example to its original github repository https://github.com/davibe/next.js-css-global-style-test

If your stylesheets import fonts

Install postcss-url and insert require('postcss-url')({ url: 'inline' }) as the 2nd element of the plugins array in postcss.config.js.
