    FAQ

    why did you make this?

    i like 9elements' guide, but it's hard to keep everything in order by hand. this can do that for me.

    how is the order decided?

    properties are ordered as suggested in the guide, with related properties grouped together. in the case of properties like background, the shorthand property appears first, followed by the more specific properties in the order they appear in the shorthand. properties that do not specifically appear in the order will be placed after the ones which do.

    if you want to look at the order, see lib/order.js.

    i disagree with where something is in the order. can you change it?

    no. like standard/standard, linn is really supposed to help you avoid bikeshedding. unless i've forgotten a property or a new one is added to the CSS spec, the order is unlikely to change.
