Add powerful styling to your react-native components, including scaling, global variables, selectors and more !
Why this ?
Working with style in react-native is lovely ! But it's also really painful when it comes to repeat the same things : using colors, scaling sizes, sharing style among multiple components...
This is where Lipstick comes in : it replaces the default StyleSheet object provided by react and allows you to do much more funny things !
npm install --save react-native-lipstick
yarn add react-native-lipstick
;;;const styles = StyleSheet;const Element =<View style=stylestopBar><Image style=stylesprofilePicture source= uri: "https://..." /></View>
Lipstick works with a plugin system : actually, everything is a plugin in Lipstick ! By default are provided three plugins :
- globalVariablePlugin : allows the usage of global variables
- multiSelectorsPlugin : handle the use of selectors (like 'topBar|profilePicture')
- scalePlugin : scales the values according to the screen dimensions so your app looks the same on every screen (inspired by react-native-size-matters)
Write your own plugin !
A plugin is a simple function that takes a style in, and spit a style out. It's really easy to add your own !
I really don't know if it's a threat in terms of performance, because in depth every plugin loops through every keys of the style object. I think it's gonna add a few ms to launch time, so it's really not noticeable.
If you have ideas or anything on this please share :)
