    Color functions

    The following functions are include when using one of the three collection options (all, general or sections).

    Without the included functions the colors can be accessed through map-deep-get

    Example map structure

    $eb-colors: (
      '[colorname]': map-get($eb-colors-colors, 'key'),

    Background (background-color: & color:)

    Sets both background-color and color, to ensure correct usage

    @import "node_modules/@ekstra-bladet/eb-colors/src/all";
    .selector {
      @include .bg--[colorname];

    foreground (color:)

    Returns the main color

    @import "node_modules/@ekstra-bladet/eb-colors/src/all";
    .selector {
      color: var(--color--[colorname]);

    Mapping colors

    Each of general colors $eb-colors-general (found in src/general) & section colors $eb-colors-sections (found in src/sections) are mapped from all colors $eb-colors-colors

    $eb-color-[new-map-name]: (
      'sport' : map-get($eb-colors-colors, 'key'),

    CSS classes

    CSS classes are generated after the following pattern

    .bg--[sectionname] {
        background-color: [main section color];
        color: [foreground section color];
    .color--[sectionname] {
        color: [main section color];
    /** Real world example */
    .bg--eb {
        background-color: var(--color--eb);
        color: var(--fgcolor--eb);
    .color--eb {
        color: var(--color--eb);

    Working example

    <div class="bg--eb">
        This will have the eb background color and the corresponding foreground color.
