var rework = require('rework');
var css = 'div { float: left; }';
 
rework(css).use(flip.rework()).toString();

css-flip provides a way to ignore declarations or rules that should not be flipped, and precisely replace property values.

Prevent a single declaration from being flipped.

Source:

p {
  /*@noflip*/ float: left;
  clear: left;
}

Yields:

p {
  float: left;
  clear: right;
}

Prevent all declarations in a rule from being flipped.

Source:

/*@noflip*/
p {
  float: left;
  clear: left;
}

Yields:

p {
  float: left;
  clear: left;
}

Replace the value of a single declaration. Useful for custom LTR/RTL adjustments, e.g., changing background sprite positions or using a different glyph in an icon font.

Source:

p {
  /*@replace: -32px -32px*/ background-position: -32px 0;
  /*@replace: ">"*/ content: "<";
}

Yields:

p {
  background-position: -32px -32px;
  content: ">";
}

The CLI can be used globally or locally in a package.
