CoffeeScript CSS

despite the name, CoffeeScript is not required; it just makes writing objects (as well as everything else) easier. You could create a JSON string in another language, parse it in node, and render it with ccss.


npm install ccss

ccss = require 'ccss'

template = require './' css = ccss.compile template require('fs').writeFileSync 'main.css', css

#or all at once: ccss.compileFile './', 'main.css'

borderRadius = (str) ->
  WebkitBorderRadius: str
  MozBorderRadius:    str
  borderRadius:       str

boxShadow = (str) -> WebkitBoxShadow: str MozBoxShadow: str boxShadow: str

module.exports = form: input: padding: '5px' border: '1px solid' mixins: borderRadius '5px' '#id .className': do -> opaque = 1 translucent = opaque / 2 img: mixins: [ borderRadius '5px' boxShadow '5px' ] opacity: translucent 'img:hover': opacity: opaque


form input {
  padding: 5px;
  border: 1px solid;
  -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
  -moz-border-radius: 5px;
  border-radius: 5px;
#id .className img {
  opacity: 0.5;
  -webkit-border-radius: 5px;
  -moz-border-radius: 5px;
  border-radius: 5px;
  -webkit-box-shadow: 5px;
  -moz-box-shadow: 5px;
  box-shadow: 5px;
#id .className img:hover {
  opacity: 1;

the core of the compiler is simply this:

iterate over the key / values of an object; if the value is another object, append the key to the current selector, and recurse; else generate css.

to reduce the amount of quoting, if a css property has a capital letter C, it will be transformed into -c; selectors are not touched.
