Styles - Abstracts

This package gathers all Sass tools and helpers used across the project. Every global variable, function, mixin and placeholder should be put in here.

The rule of thumb for this folder is that it should not output a single line of CSS when compiled on its own. These are nothing but Sass helpers.

Styles packages structure

There are two ways to use this package:

Using the entire package

To use the entire package, you can import the abstracts.scss file from the package into your project.

// Import the entire abstracts package
@import '~@studyportals/styles-abstracts/abstracts.scss';

The ~ is an alias for node_modules. You might need to set this up in your project. Otherwise you can use the full url.
