SYNOPSISrecess [PATH] [OPTIONS]
DESCRIPTIONDeveloped at Twitter to support our internal styleguide, RECESS is a simple, attractive code quality tool for CSS built on top of LESS.
Incorporate it into your development process as a linter, or integrate it directly into your build system as a compiler, RECESS will keep your source looking clean and super manageable.
- compiles your code and outputs it to the terminal. Fixes white space and sort order. Can compile css or less.
- compress your compiled code.
- accepts a path, which specifies a json config object.
- removes color from output (useful when logging).
- watch filesystem for changes, useful when compiling Less projects.
- doesn't complain about using IDs in your stylesheets.
- doesn't complain about styling `.js-` prefixed classnames.
- doesn't complain about overqualified selectors (ie: `div#foo.bar`).
- doesn't complain about using underscores in your class names.
- doesn't complain about using the universal `*` selector.
- doesn't looking into your property ordering.
doesn't complain if you add units to values of 0.
- Lint all css files:
- $ recess *.css
- Lint file, ignore styling of IDs:
- $ recess ./bootstrap.css --noIds false
- Compile and compress .less file, then output it to a new file:
- $ recess ./bootstrap.less --compress > ./bootstrap-production.css
- Watch a directory for changes and auto compile a css file from the changes. *experimental*:
$ recess input.less:ouput.css --compile --watch watch/this/dir/for/changes
