    libcss-js

    Parses CSS and lets you query the computed style of elements in your document tree. Uses the NetSurf browser's LibCSS, transpiled to JavaScript.

    Installation

    npm install libcss
    

    Usage

    Consider the following document tree:

    <div id="parent">
      <div id="box" class="sections">
        <p id="a-paragraph">
          Some text.
        </p>
      </div>
      <div id="info" class="sections floaty" style="color: pink;">
      </div>
    </div>

    Note: libcss-js will work with any document tree, not only HTML!

    var libcss = require('libcss');
     
    var handlers = { /* see below */ };
    libcss.init(handlers);
     
    var css1 = 'div { color: red; width: 70em; display: flex; }'
    var css2 = '#box { color: green; } #parent > .floaty { float: left; }'
    libcss.addSheet(css1);
    libcss.addSheet(css2);
     
    var parStyle = libcss.getStyle('a-paragraph');
    var boxStyle = libcss.getStyle('box');
    console.log(parStyle['color']);
    // '#ff00ff00', formated as #aarrggbb
    console.log(boxStyle['width']);
    // '70em'
     
    libcss.dropSheets()
    parStyle = libcss.getStyle('a-paragraph');
    boxStyle = libcss.getStyle('box');
    console.log(parStyle['color']);
    // '#ff000000'
    console.log(boxStyle['width']);
    // 'auto'
     

    API

    libcss.init(config)

    This method enables libcss-js to navigate your document tree. It must be called before queries are made.

    config <object>

    All members of this object must be callback functions. The identifier parameter is a string that uniquely identifies an element in your document tree.

    The following example provides all the required handlers (callback functions) to libcss-js. For simplicity, we will use the element id as the identifier string, but you should use something more consistent, such as a hash or a UUID:

    libcss.init({
      getTagName: function (identifier) {
        // Must return a string with the tag name of the element, such as:
        // 'div', or 'p', or 'body'.
        var element = document.getElementById(identifier);
        return element.tagName;
      },
     
      getAttributes: function (identifier) {
        // Must return an array of objects in the format:
        // { attribute: <string>, value: <string> }
        // Must include all HTML attributes of the element, such as class, id, etc.
        var element = document.getElementById(identifier);
        var attrs = []
        for (let key in element.attributes) {
          if (element.attributes[key].nodeName) {
            attrs.push({
              attribute: element.attributes[key].nodeName,
              value: element.attributes[key].nodeValue
            })
        }}
        return attrs;
      },
     
      getSiblings: function (identifier) {
        // Must return an array of identifier strings.
        // This array must contain, in order, all of the parent's children,
        // including the element being queried.
        var element = document.getElementById(identifier);
        var sibs = [];
        for (let s of element.parentElement.children) {
          sibs.push(s.id);
        }
      },
     
      getAncestors: function (identifier) {
        // Must return an array of identifier strings.
        // This array must contain, in order, the chain of parents of the element.
        // i.e. [ 'parent-id', 'grandparent-id', 'great-grandparent-id' ]
        var parent = document.getElementById(identifier).parentElement;
        var ancs = [];
        while (parent) {
          ancs.push(parent.id);
          parent = parent.parentElement;
        }
        return ancs;
      },
     
      isEmpty: function (identifier) {
        // Must return boolean.
        var element = document.getElementById(identifier);
        return (element.textContent.trim() !== '' || element.childElementCount > 0);
      },
     
      // The functions above are needed for libcss-js to navigate your element tree.
      // The ones below are optional. If not provided, they always return false.
      isVisited: function (identifier) {
        // Return boolean
      },
     
      isHover: function (identifier) {
        // Return boolean
      },
     
      isActive: function (identifier) {
        // Return boolean
      },
     
      isFocus: function (identifier) {
        // Return boolean
      },
     
      isEnabled: function (identifier) {
        // Return boolean
      },
     
      isDisabled: function (identifier) {
        // Return boolean
      },
     
      isChecked: function (identifier) {
        // Return boolean
      },
     
      isTarget: function (identifier) {
        // Return boolean
      },
     
      isLang: function (identifier <string>, language <string>) {
        // Return boolean
        var element = document.getElementById(identifier);
        return (element.lang === language);
      }
    });

    libcss.addSheet(sheet, ?options)

    Adds a CSS stylesheet to the selection context.

    sheet <string> The CSS text to be parsed.

    options <object>

    • options.level <string>

      CSS level. Accepted values are '1', '2', '2.1' and '3'. Defaults to '3'.

    • options.origin <string>

      CSS origin. Accepted values are 'author', 'user', 'ua', 'UA', 'user agent', 'user-agent' (the last four are equivalent). Defaults to 'author'.

    • options.url <string>

      URL from which the CSS file was retrieved. Useful for loading resources with relative paths.

    • options.media <array of strings>

      The media to apply the CSS rules. Accepted values of the string array are 'tv', 'tty', 'aural', 'print', 'screen', 'speech', 'braille', 'embossed', 'handheld', 'projection' and 'all'. Defaults to 'all'.

    • options.allow_quirks <boolean>

      Attempt to parse poorly-formatted CSS. Use only if needed, because it may parse shorthands with undefined behavior. Defaults to false.

    libcss.dropSheets()

    Deletes all CSS from the selection context.

    libcss.getStyle(identifier, ?options)

    Returns an object containing all the computed style for the element that corresponds to the identifier. The returned object has the format { 'property': 'value', ... }. The available properties are defined upstream, by NetSurf's LibCSS.

    options <object>

    • options.pseudo <string>

      Pseudo element to be queried. Accepted values are 'none', 'first-line', 'first-letter', 'before' and 'after'. Defaults to 'none'.

    • options.media <string>
