Spike CSS Standards

npm tests dependencies coverage

A standard plugin pack for postcss


npm install spike-css-standards -S


This is nothing more than a light wrapper around a postcss configuration object. Options are filtered into their appropriate plugins internally. All are optional.

const postcss = require('postcss')
const cssStandards = require('spike-css-standards')
const standards = cssStandards(/* options */)
// returns { parser: 'xxx', plugins: ['xxx'] } 
  .process(/* css string */, { parser: standards.parser })
  .then((res) => { console.log(res.content) })

By default, the css standard plugin pack includes:

Any of these plugins can be customized by passing the options described below. You can also add additional postCSS plugins (like the popular lost grid, for example) on top of this package:

const cssStandards = require('spike-css-standards')
const lost = require('lost')
const css = cssStandards()
