    3.0.0 • Public • Published


    Converts CSS text to a React Native stylesheet object.

    font-size: 18px;
    line-height: 24px;
    color: red;
      fontSize: 18,
      lineHeight: 24,
      color: 'red',

    Converts all number-like values to numbers, and string-like to strings.

    Automatically converts indirect values to their React Native equivalents.

    text-shadow-offset: 10px 5px;
    font-variant: small-caps;
    transform: translate(10px, 5px) scale(5);
      textShadowOffset: { width: 10, height: 5 },
      fontVariant: ['small-caps'],
      // Fixes backwards transform order
      transform: [
        { translateY: 10 },
        { translateX: 10 },
        { scale: 5 },

    Also allows shorthand values.

    font: bold 14px/16px "Helvetica";
    margin: 5px 7px 2px;
      fontFamily: 'Helvetica',
      fontSize: 14,
      fontWeight: 'bold',
      fontStyle: 'normal',
      fontVariant: [],
      lineHeight: 16,
      marginTop: 5,
      marginRight: 7,
      marginBottom: 2,
      marginLeft: 7,

    Shorthands will only accept values that are supported in React, so background will only accept a colour, backgroundColor

    There is also support for the box-shadow shorthand, and this converts into shadow- properties. Note that these only work on iOS.

    Shorthand Notes

    border{Top,Right,Bottom,Left} shorthands are not supported, because borderStyle cannot be applied to individual border sides.


    The API is mostly for implementors. However, the main API may be useful for non-implementors. The main API is an array of [property, value] tuples.

    import transform from 'css-to-react-native';
    // or const transform = require('css-to-react-native').default;
      ['font', 'bold 14px/16px "Helvetica"'],
      ['margin', '5px 7px 2px'],
      ['border-left-width', '5px'],
    ]); // => { fontFamily: 'Helvetica', ... }

    We don't provide a way to get these style tuples in this library, so you'll need to do that yourself. I expect most people will use postCSS or another CSS parser. You should try avoid getting these with string.split, as that has a lot of edge cases (colons and semi-colons apearing in comments etc.)

    For implementors, there is also a few extra APIs available.

    These are for specific use-cases, and most people should just be using the API above.

    import { getPropertyName, getStylesForProperty } from 'css-to-react-native';
    getPropertyName('border-width'); // => 'borderWidth'
    getStylesForProperty('borderWidth', '1px 0px 2px 0px'); // => { borderTopWidth: 1, ... }

    Should you wish to opt-out of transforming certain shorthands, an array of property names in camelCase can be passed as a second argument to transform.

    transform([['border-radius', '50px']], ['borderRadius']);
    // { borderRadius: 50 } rather than { borderTopLeft: ... }

    This can also be done by passing a third argument, false to getStylesForProperty.
