``cssdecl`` Python CSS declaration computer

|build| |docs| |coverage|

This package provides basic computation of CSS declarations in order to:

* handle overwriting of properties

>>> from cssdecl import CSS22Resolver
>>> resolve = CSS22Resolver().resolve_string
>>> resolve('font-size: 10pt; font-size: 12pt')
{'font-size': '12pt'}

* expand shorthands like `border-width: 0 5pt`

>>> resolved = resolve('border-width: 0 5pt')
>>> resolved.pop('border-left-width')
>>> resolved.pop('border-right-width')
>>> resolved.pop('border-bottom-width')
>>> resolved.pop('border-top-width')
>>> resolved

* (TODO!) expand shorthands like `font: 5px sans-serif bold` into `font-family: sans-serif`, `font-size: 5px`, `font-weight: bold`
* resolve sizes to a common unit (i.e. pt)

>>> resolve('font-size: 20px')
{'font-size': '15pt'}
>>> resolve('font-size: 1em')
{'font-size': '12pt'}
>>> resolve('font-size: 1em', inherited={'font-size': '20pt'})
{'font-size': '20pt'}
>>> resolve('font-size: small')
{'font-size': '9.600000pt'}

* resolve `inherit` given some inherited declarations

>>> resolve('color: red; color: inherit', inherited={'color': 'blue'})
{'color': 'blue'}

Some properties that are not shorthands in CSS 2.2 become
shorthands in CSS 3, such as `text-decoration`. We therefore
hope to provide :class:`cssdecl.CSS22Resolver` and :class:`cssdecl.CSS3Resolver`.

This module does *not* process CSS selectors (e.g. ``#some-id > * > div.some-class``) and their applicability to elements, including specificity (e.g. ``!important``).

This was first developed for use in Pandas_ (`#15530 <>`_).
Issues will continue to be prioritised to improve CSS support there, in the absence of other clear use-cases.
