Build Status NPM version Dependency Status devDependency Status

CSScomb is a coding style formatter for CSS. You can easily write your own configuration to make your style sheets beautiful and consistent.

The main feature is sorting properties in a specific order. It was inspired by @miripiruni's PHP-based tool of the same name. This is the new JavaScript version, based on the powerful CSS parser Gonzales PE.

0. Maintenance mode

The tool is no longer being developed though we may still fix parsing errors and critical bugs.
That means that you should not expect any new features or options.
