grunt-ks-stylus v0.1.1

NPM version Build Status Dependency Status Downloads counter

Compile Stylus (with Kouto Swiss framework) files to CSS.


You shouldn't use this plugin. Prefer grunt-contrib-stylus.


This grunt task is forked (and will be rebased when source updates) from grunt-contrib-stylus.
The only difference is the inclusion of Kouto Swiss' framework in the path.

When Kouto Swiss will be officialy released, and gain some users, I will proposed a pull request to the original grunt task.

grunt-contrib-stylus base version for the fork : 0.15.1.
stylus version included : 0.47.3.
kouto-swiss version included : 0.9.8.
nib version included : 1.0.3.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-contrib-stylus --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


This plugin was designed to work with Grunt 0.4.x. If you're still using grunt v0.3.x it's strongly recommended that you upgrade, but in case you can't please use v0.3.1.

Stylus task

Run this task with the grunt stylus command.

Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide.

This task comes preloaded with nib and Kouto Swiss.



Type: Boolean
Default: true

Specifies if we should compress the compiled css. Compression is always disabled when --debug flag is passed to grunt.


Type: Boolean
Default: false

Specifies if the generated CSS file should contain comments indicating the corresponding stylus line.


Type: Boolean
Default: false

Specifies if the generated CSS file should contain debug info that can be used by the FireStylus Firebug plugin


Type: Array

Specifies directories to scan for @import directives when parsing.


Type: Object

Allows you to define global variables in Gruntfile that will be accessible in Stylus files.


Type: Boolean|Array|String

If set to "true", defines global variables in Gruntfile without casting objects to Stylus lists. Allows using a JavaScript object in Gruntfile to be accessible as a Stylus Hash. See Stylus's issue tracker for details. LearnBoost/stylus#1286

Allows passing an array or string to specify individual keys to define "raw", casting all other keys as default Stylus behavior.


Type: String|Object

If String: specifies function name that should be used for embedding images as Data URI.

If Object:

  • name - Type: String. Function name that should be used for embedding images as Data URI.
  • [ limit ] - Type: Number|Boolean Default: 30000. Bytesize limit defaulting to 30Kb (30000), use false to disable the limit.
  • [ [paths ] - Type: Array, Default: []. Image resolution path(s).

See url() for details.


Type: Array

Allows passing of stylus plugins to be used during compile.


Type: Array

Import given stylus packages into every compiled .styl file, as if you wrote @import '...' in every single one of said files.

include css

Type: Boolean
Default: false

When including a css file in your app.styl by using @import "style.css", by default it will not include the full script, use true to compile into one script. ( NOTICE: the object key contains a space "include css" )

resolve url

Type: Boolean
Default: false

Telling Stylus to generate url("bar/baz.png") in the compiled CSS files accordingly from @import "bar/bar.styl" and url("baz.png"), which makes relative pathes work in Stylus. ( NOTICE: the object key contains a space "resolve url" and Stylus resolves the url only if it finds the provided file )


Type: String
Default: ''

This string will be prepended to the beginning of the compiled output.


stylus: {
  compile: {
    options: {
      paths: ['path/to/import', 'another/to/import'],
      urlfunc: 'embedurl', // use embedurl('test.png') in our code to trigger Data URI embedding
      use: [
        require('fluidity') // use stylus plugin at compile time
      import: [      //  @import 'foo', 'bar/moo', etc. into every .styl file
        'foo',       //  that is compiled. These might be findable based on values you gave
        'bar/moo'    //  to `paths`, or a plugin you added under `use`
    files: {
      'path/to/result.css': 'path/to/source.styl', // 1:1 compile
      'path/to/another.css': ['path/to/sources/*.styl', 'path/to/more/*.styl'] // compile and concat into single file
