    📖 Table of Contents


    Features

    • Converts CSS to JS
    • Supports multiple input and output formats (inline code, files, directories)
    • Generates style objects as e6 exports with options to split into separate files
    • Reverse media query distribution

    🤹‍ Usage

    Install:

    npm install @americanexpress/css-to-js --save-dev  

    CLI:

    css-to-js <inputPath> <outputPath> (--mediaReverse) (--splitFile | --shakeFile)  
      
    Arguments:  
     inputPath   input path to css file or dir of css files outputPath  output path to js file or dir  Options:  
     --help --version --mediaReverse  reverse mediaQuery style properties  --splitFile  generate multiple files with exports for each selector in css file   
      --shakeFile  generate single file with exports for each selector in css file   
        
      If shakeFile or splitFile is not specified, generate single file with single exported object with selectors in css file as keys  
     See API for more details.

    Node:

    import { convert } from 'css-to-js';  
    Example Usage:   
    
    //Input CSS string, Outputs JS Object  
    convert(`.myClass { color: 'red' }`);   
    
    //Input CSS string, Output file exporting JS Object  
    convert(`.myClass { color: 'red' }`, { outputType: 'file', outputPath: 'outPath' });   
    
    //Input CSS file path, Output file exporting JS Object  
    convert('absolute-path-to-css-file', { outputType: 'file', outputPath: 'outPath' });  
      
    //Input CSS file path, Output file exporting multiple JS Objects  
    convert('absolute-path-to-css-file', { outputType: 'shakeFile', outputPath: 'outPath' });  
      
    //Input CSS file path, Outputs dir of files exporting single JS Objects (If treeshaking not supported)  
    convert('absolute-path-to-css-file', { outputType: 'splitFile', outputPath: 'outPath' });  
      
    //Input Dir path of CSS files, Output array of JS Objects  
    convert('absolute-path-to-dir');  
      
    //Input Dir path of CSS files, Output dir of converted files exporting JS Object  
    convert('absolute-path-to-dir'', { outputType: 'file', outputPath: 'outPath' });  
      

    🎛️ API

    Input and Output type options

    Ensure paths are absolute or relative to the root only
    Convert Function Input Type Output Type(s)
    convert(css); Path to single CSS file or string of CSS code JS style object
    convert(css, { outputType: 'file', outputPath: 'example.js' }); Path to single CSS file or string of CSS code Generated JS file 'example.js' with a default export of a JS style object
    convert(css, { outputType: 'shakeFile', outputPath: 'shakeExample.js' }); Path to single CSS file or string of CSS code Generated JS file 'shakeExample.js' with multiple named exports of JS style objects
    convert(css, { outputType: 'splitFile', outputPath: 'splitExample' }); Path to single CSS file or string of CSS code Generated directory 'splitExample' with multiple files each with a default export of a JS style object
    convert(dirPath); Path to directory of CSS files Array of JS style objects
    convert(dirPath, { outputType: 'file', outputPath: 'exampleDir' }); Path to directory of CSS files Generated directory of JS files; Each file has a default export of a JS style object and is named after the corresponding css file
    convert(dirPath, { outputType: 'shakeFile', outputPath: 'shakeExample.js' }); Path to directory of CSS files Generated directory of JS files; Each file has multiple named exports of JS style objects and is named after the corresponding css file
    convert(dirPath, { outputType: 'splitFile', outputPath: 'splitExample' }); Path to directory of CSS files Generated directory of directories; Each file has a default export of a JS style object and is named after the corresponding css file

    File conversion examples

    Sample Input: nav.css

    .class1 {    
      color: 'red';  
    }  
    .class2 {
      color: 'blue'; 
    }

    Example 1: File - Creates a file with a single object export representing tree of full converted css

    convert(
       path.resolve(__dirname, './nav.css'), 
       { 
         outputType: 'file', 
         outputPath: path.resolve(__dirname, '../example1.js') 
       }
    );
    

    Output: Example1.js

    export default {   
      class1: { color: 'red' },   
      class2: { color: 'blue' } 
    }  

    Example 2: ShakeFile - Create file with multiple exports representing each selector of converted css
    (Useful for tree-shaking style objects that do not get used)

    convert(
       path.resolve(__dirname, './nav.css'), 
       { 
         outputType: 'shakeFile', 
         outputPath: path.resolve(__dirname, '../example2.js') 
       }
    );
    

    Output: Example2.js

    export const class1 = { color: 'red' };  
    export const class2 = { color: 'blue' };  

    Example 3: SplitFile - Create multiple files with exports representing each selector of converted css
    (Useful for excluding style objects that do not get used if tree-shaking is not implemented)

    convert(
       path.resolve(__dirname, './nav.css'), 
       { 
         outputType: 'splitFile', 
         outputPath: path.resolve(__dirname, '../example3') 
       }
    );
    

    Output: Example3/

    class1.js

    export default { color: 'red' };  

    class2.js

    export default { color: 'blue' }; 

    Media Reverse

    Note: mediaReverse is always true if output type is shakeFile or splitFile

    Sometimes it's useful to have the styles located in media queries distributed into the selector properties rather than be their own property.
    If the mediaReverse flag is set to true, reverse the positioning of media queries to be inside the property.

    nav.css

    .class1 { color: 'red'; }  
      
    @media (min-width:500px) {    
      .class1 { color: 'blue'; } 
    }  
    @media (min-width:1000px) {    
      .class1 { color: 'green'; } 
    }  

    If mediaReverse is not set:

    convert(
       path.resolve(__dirname, './nav.css'), 
       { 
         outputType: 'file', 
         outputPath: path.resolve(__dirname, '../example4.js') 
       }
    );
    

    Example4.js

    export default {   
      class1: { color: 'red' },   
      '@media (min-width:500px)': {  
        class2: { color: 'blue' }   
      },  
      '@media (min-width:1000px)': {
        class2: { color: 'green' }   
      }  
    }  

    If mediaReverse is set to true:

    convert(
       path.resolve(__dirname, './nav.css'), 
       { 
         outputType: 'file', 
         outputPath: path.resolve(__dirname, '../example4.js'),
         mediaReverse: true 
       }
    );
    

    Example4.js

    export default {   
     class1: { color: 'red' },   
     class2: {   
       '@media (min-width:500px)': {  
         color: 'blue'   
       },  
       '@media (min-width:1000px)': {
         color: 'green'   
       }    
     }  
    }
