A preprocessor for designers

Project Description

CSS-On-Diet

CSS-On-Diet is a preprocessor for CSS files. The key feature is mnemonics for frequently used properties, which are similar to Emmet abbreviations. Other goodies include intuitive media breakpoints, nested and single line comments, variables and mixins, a calculator, hexadecimal RGBA, minifier, …

Features

Use old CSS

.element {
  letter-spacing: 2px;
  background-color: #1C6BA0;
}

If all your CSS declarations are on separate lines you don’t have to change anything

Remove colons

.element {
  letter-spacing 2px
  background-color #1C6BA0
}

In CSS-On-Diet colons and semicolons are optional

Use mnemonics

.element {
  les 2p
  bac #1C6BA0
}

Common CSS keywords have mnemonics. Parameters are 3 letters long, values 2, and units just 1 letter (The list)

Medias Breakpoints

@cod-media {
  tablet (min-width: 768px)
}
.element {
  les 2p
  les 3p @tablet
}

Responsive Web Design was never so easy and intuitive

One line comments

.element {
  les 2p // why not 3?
  bac #1C6BA0 // deep ocean
}

No need to remember to close those comments

Nested comments

.element {
  /*
  les /*3p*/ 2p
  */
  bac #1C6BA0
}

Now you can comment out code with other comment inside. Finally…

Arithmetics

.element {
  les 3p-1
  bac #1C6BA0
}

CSS needs calculations. That’s more than sure.

Short RGBA

.element {
  les 3p-1
  bac #1C6BA0F1
}

Just two more digits and you have transparency with your color

Variables

@cod-defines {
  sp2014 3p-1
  ocean #1C6BA0F1
}
.element {
  les sp2014
  bac ocean
}

Defines are like variables. Write it once and use it anywhere. Stay DRY!

Mixins

@cod-defines {
  sp2014 3p-1
  ocean bac #1C6BA0_ARG1_ ;\
        bai url("fish.png")
}
.element {
  les sp2014
  ocean(F1)
}

Mixins can be anything placed anywhere. Arguments give them programming power.

Installation

Actually, in the current version cod.py is the only file you need it. Of course you need Python to launch it. Note that in the proper installation cod script is a copy of cod.py.

To perform proper installation you have following choices:

  1. Use/install pip and type pip install CSSOnDiet (that will download and install CSSOnDiet from pypi)
  2. Download archive from CSS-On-Diet website, unpack it and run python setup.py install
  3. Or clone this github repo and run also python setup.py install from it.
