Stylish

Stylish is a tool for writing CSS with Ruby.

Creating stylesheets

style = Stylish.generate do
  rule ".header", :background => {:color => "teal", :image => "header.png"}
  rule ".content" do
    h2 :font_size => "2em"
    p :margin => "0 0 1em 0"
  end
end

Calling the stylesheet's to_s method would produce the following CSS code.

.header {background-color:teal; background-image:url('header.png');}
.content h2 {font-size:2em;}
.content p {margin:0 0 1em 0;}

A number of additional examples are available in the example/ directory.

Compatibility

Stylish is compatible with Ruby 1.9. To expand on this slightly, the Stylish test suite passes under Ruby 1.9; the usual caveats about this apply.

Future considerations

  • Add a Border class to complement Background.
  • Add a parser so CSS can be read as well as written.

Design notes

CSS is a remarkably succinct and powerful language, with several marked deficiencies. It lacks both variables and iteration, and its long-winded property names are often irritating. Stylish attempts to address these issues by reducing duplication, providing a cleaner namespacing syntax and reducing transcription errors. It is not intended as a replacement for hand-authored CSS, but as a supplement to it.

Stylish treats CSS as object code--but it treats it nicely.
