fd-css-parse

css Build Status

CSS parser / stringifier.

Installation

$ npm install css

Usage

var css = require('css')
var obj = css.parse('body { font-size: 12px; }', options)
css.stringify(obj, options);

API

css.parse(code, [options])

Accepts a CSS string and returns an AST object.

options:

  • silent: silently fail on parse errors.
  • source: the path to the file containing css. Makes errors and source maps more helpful, by letting them know where code comes from.

css.stringify(object, [options])

Accepts an AST object (as css.parse produces) and returns a CSS string.

options:

  • compress: omit comments and extraneous whitespace.
  • sourcemap: return a sourcemap along with the CSS output. Using the source option of css.parse is strongly recommended when creating a source map.

Example

var ast = css.parse('body { font-size: 12px; }', { position: true, source: 'source.css' });
 
var css = css.stringify(ast);
 
var result = css.stringify(ast, { sourcemap: true });
result.code // string with CSS 
result.map // source map object 

Errors

Errors will have error.position, just like node.position.

If you create any errors in plugins such as in rework, you must set the position as well for consistency.

AST

Common properties

All nodes have the following properties.

position

Information about the position in the source string that corresponds to the node.

Object:

  • start: Object:
    • line: Number.
    • column: Number.
  • end: Object:
    • line: Number.
    • column: Number.
  • source: String or undefined. The value of options.source if passed to css.parse. Otherwise undefined.
  • content: String. The full source string passed to css.parse.
  • parent: Object. Reference to the parent node that contains this node.

The line and column numbers are 1-based: The first line is 1 and the first column of a line is 1 (not 0).

The position property lets you know from which source file the node comes from (if available), what that file contains, and what part of that file was parsed into the node.
