PostCSS LESS Variables Build Status

PostCSS plugin for less-like variables.

You can use variables inside values, selectors and at-rule’s parameters.

@blue: #056ef0;
@column: 200px;
 
.menu {
    width: calc(4 * @column);
}
.menu_link {
    background: @blue;
    width: @column;
}
.menu {
    width: calc(4 * 200px);
}
.menu_link {
    background: #056ef0;
    width: 200px;
}

If you want be closer to W3C spec, you should use postcss-custom-properties plugin.

Also you should look at postcss-map for big complicated configs.

Interpolation

There is special syntax if you want to use variable inside CSS words:

@prefix: my-company-widget
 
@prefix { }
@{prefix}_button { }

Usage

postcss([ require('postcss-less-vars') ])

See PostCSS docs for examples for your environment.

Options

Call plugin function to set options:

postcss([
    require('postcss-less-vars')({
        variables: {
            color: '#fff',
            height: '40rem'
        }
    })
])

variables

Set default variables. It is useful to store colors or other constants in common file:

// config/colors.js
 
module.exports = {
    blue: '#056ef0'
}
 
// gulpfile.js
 
var colors = require('./config/colors');
var vars   = require('postcss-less-vars')
 
gulp.task('css', function () {
     return gulp.src('./src/*.css')
        .pipe(postcss([
            vars({
                variables: colors
            })
        ]))
        .pipe(gulp.dest('./dest'));
});

You can set a function returning object, if you want to update default variables in webpack hot reload:

postcss([
    vars({
        variables: function () {
            return require('./config/colors');
        }
    })
]

only

Set value only for variables from this object. Other variables will not be changed. It is useful for PostCSS plugin developers.
