Short Text Build Status

Short Text is a PostCSS plugin that lets you use a shorthand text property in CSS.

/* before */
 
section {
    text: bold center uppercase dimgrey 1.25em 1.5 .05em;
}
 
article {
    text: 1.25em * .05em;
}
 
/* after */
 
section {
    font-weight: bold;
    text-align: center;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    color: dimgrey;
    font-size: 1.25em;
    line-height: 1.5;
    letter-spacing: .05em;
}
 
article {
    font-size: 1.25em;
    letter-spacing: .05em;
}

Properties are matched into groups that may be written in any order. Once a property is matched to a group, other properties from that group must then be written before properties of another group. Asterisks indicate that an individual property in a group should be skipped. The groups include:

  • color
  • font-style, font-variant, font-weight, font-stretch
  • text-decoration, text-align, text-rendering, text-transform
  • white-space
  • font-size, line-height, letter-spacing, word-spacing
