Philosopher’s stone, logo of PostCSS

PostCSS is a tool for transforming styles with JS plugins. These plugins can lint your CSS, support variables and mixins, transpile future CSS syntax, inline images, and more.

PostCSS is used by industry leaders including Wikipedia, Twitter, Alibaba, and JetBrains. The Autoprefixer PostCSS plugin is one of the most popular CSS processors.

PostCSS takes a CSS file and provides an API to analyze and modify its rules (by transforming them into an Abstract Syntax Tree). This API can then be used by plugins to do a lot of useful things, e.g. to find errors automatically insert vendor prefixes.

Currently, PostCSS has more than 200 plugins. You can find all of the plugins in the plugins list or in the searchable catalog. Below is a list of our favorite plugins — the best demonstrations of what can be built on top of PostCSS.

If you have any new ideas, PostCSS plugin development is really easy.

PostCSS can transform styles in any syntax, not just CSS. If there is not yet support for your favorite syntax, you can write a parser and/or stringifier to extend PostCSS.


More articles and videos you can find on awesome-postcss list.



You can start using PostCSS in just two steps:

  1. Find and add PostCSS extensions for your build tool.
  2. Select plugins and add them to your PostCSS process.


The best way to use PostCSS with CSS-in-JS is [


]( Add its loader to your



module.exports = { module: { rules: [{ test: /\.css$/, use: ['style-loader', 'postcss-loader'], }, { test: /\.jsx?$/, use: ['babel-loader', 'astroturf/loader'], } ] } }

Then create



module.exports = { plugins: [require('autoprefixer'), require('postcss-nested')] }


Parcel has built-in PostCSS support. It already uses Autoprefixer and cssnano. If you want to change plugins, create


in project’s root:

module.exports = { plugins: [require('autoprefixer'), require('postcss-nested')] }

Parcel will even automatically install these plugins for you.

Please, be aware of the several issues in Version 1. Notice, Version 2 may resolve the issues via issue #2157.


Use [


]( in



module.exports = { module: { rules: [{ test: /\.css$/, exclude: /node\_modules/, use: [ { loader: 'style-loader', }, { loader: 'css-loader', options: { importLoaders: 1, } }, { loader: 'postcss-loader' }] } ] } }

Then create



module.exports = { plugins: [require('precss'), require('autoprefixer')] }


Use [


]( and [



gulp.task('css', () =\> { const postcss = require('gulp-postcss') const sourcemaps = require('gulp-sourcemaps') return gulp.src('src/\*\*/\*.css') .pipe( sourcemaps.init() ) .pipe( postcss([require('precss'), require('autoprefixer')]) ) .pipe( sourcemaps.write('.') ) .pipe( gulp.dest('build/') ) })

npm run / CLI

To use PostCSS from your command-line interface or with npm scripts there is [



postcss --use autoprefixer -c options.json -o main.css css/\*.css


If you want to compile CSS string in browser (for instance, in live edit tools like CodePen), just use Browserify or webpack. They will pack PostCSS and plugins files into a single file.

To apply PostCSS plugins to React Inline Styles, JSS, Radium and other CSS-in-JS, you can use [


]( and transforms style objects.

var postcss = require('postcss-js') var prefixer = postcss.sync([require('autoprefixer')]) prefixer({ display: 'flex' }) //=\> { display: ['-webkit-box', '-webkit-flex', '-ms-flexbox', 'flex'] }



For other environments, you can use the JS API:

const autoprefixer = require('autoprefixer') const postcss = require('postcss') const precss = require('precss') const fs = require('fs') fs.readFile('src/app.css', (err, css) =\> { postcss([precss, autoprefixer]) .process(css, { from: 'src/app.css', to: 'dest/app.css' }) .then(result =\> { fs.writeFile('dest/app.css', result.css, () =\> true) if ( ) { fs.writeFile('dest/',, () =\> true) } }) })

Read the PostCSS API documentation for more details about the JS API.

All PostCSS runners should pass PostCSS Runner Guidelines.


Most PostCSS runners accept two parameters:

  • An array of plugins.
  • An object of options.

Common options:

  • syntax
    : an object providing a syntax parser and a stringifier.
  • parser
    : a special syntax parser (for example, SCSS).
  • stringifier
    : a special syntax output generator (for example, Midas).
  • map
    : source map options.
  • from
    : the input file name (most runners set it automatically).
  • to
    : the output file name (most runners set it automatically).

Treat Warnings as Errors

In some situations it might be helpful to fail the build on any warning from PostCSS or one of its plugins. This guarantees that no warnings go unnoticed, and helps to avoid bugs. While there is no option to enable treating warnings as errors, it can easily be done by adding


plugin in the end of PostCSS plugins:

module.exports = { plugins: [require('autoprefixer'), require('postcss-fail-on-warn')] }
