    Simply flips LTR-based CSS file to RTL, or the opposite, in pure javascript, using a bunch of regular expressions. Can be both used on the server-side with Node.js, or client-side. This package has been inspired by Google's great CSSJanus.

    Basic Usage

    var inverter = require('inverter');
      , inverted_css = inverter.invert('.some_css_class { margin: 8px 3px 9px 2px; float: left; }')

    You may optionally want to prevent some filters from running:

    var inverter = require('inverter');
      , inverted_css = inverter.invert(myCSS, {exclude: ['fixGradient']))

    Inverter will

    • fixLeftRight: Replace left with right and the opposite, but:

      • No replacement will be made between parentheses (background-image: url(bright-left.png) will be left intact)
      • No replacement will be made in selectors (.block-left { […] } will be left intact)
    • fixBodyDirection: Replace direction: ltr with direction: rtl and the opposite, only for the body tag

    • fixCursor: Replace, for example, cursor: nw-resize with cursor: ne-resize

    • fixBorderRadius: Fix border-radius definitions, so border-radius: 5px 2px 4px / 9px 2px will become border-radius: 2px 5px 2px 4px / 2px 9px

    • fixFourPartNotation: Fixes four part notation, so, for example, border: 1px 2px 3px 4px will be rewritten to border: 1px 4px 3px 2px. As it can interfere with fixBorderRadius, border-radius is explicitely excluded from the scope of this fix

    • fixGradient: Fixes most common CSS gradient definitions. This fix will replace left with right, XXXdeg with -XXXdeg and the opposites inside gradients.

    • fixUrlLeftRight: Changes URLs containing a standalone left or right. For example, url(menu-right.png) will be changed to url(menu-left.png), but url(menu-bright.png) will be left intact.

    • fixUrlLtrRtl: Same as fixUrlLeftRight, but for ltr and rtl.


    Add a fix for background images.


    This package is tested using Mocha. To run the tests, run npm install inside the package directory to install development dependencies, and then simply make test.
