Features

  • Write CSS in JS, but with zero runtime, CSS is extracted to CSS files during build
  • Familiar CSS syntax with Sass like nesting
  • Use dynamic prop based styles with the React bindings, uses CSS variables behind the scenes
  • Easily find where the style was defined with CSS sourcemaps
  • Lint your CSS in JS with stylelint
  • Use JavaScript for logic, no CSS preprocessor needed

Why use Linaria

Installation

npm install linaria

or

yarn add linaria

Setup

Linaria requires webpack to build your CSS. To set up the build, add the webpack loader to your webpack.config.js after babel-loader (if you use it):

module: {
  rules: [
    {
      test: /\.js$/,
      use: [
        { loader: 'babel-loader' },
        {
          loader: 'linaria/loader',
          options: {
            sourceMap: process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production',
          },
        },
      ],
    },
    {
      test: /\.css$/,
      use: [
        MiniCssExtractPlugin.loader,
        {
          loader: 'css-loader',
          options: {
            sourceMap: process.env.NODE_ENV !== 'production',
          },
        },
      ],
    },
  ],
  plugins: [
    new MiniCssExtractPlugin({
      filename: 'styles.css',
    }),
  ],
},

You also need css-loader and mini-css-extract-plugin in your pipeline. The usage is shown above.

Now, the CSS you write with Linaria will be extracted at build time to the styles.css file. Linaria automatically vendor prefixes and strips whitespace from the CSS.

Linaria integrates with your CSS pipeline, so you can always perform additional operations on the CSS, for example, using postcss plugins such as clean-css to further minify your CSS.

Optionally, add the linaria/babel preset to your Babel configuration at the end of the presets list to avoid errors when importing the components in your server code or tests:

{
  "presets": [
    "@babel/preset-env",
    "@babel/preset-react",
    "linaria/babel"
  ]
}

Syntax

Linaria can be used with any framework, with additional helpers for React. The basic syntax looks like this:

import { css } from 'linaria';
import { modularScale, hiDPI } from 'polished';
import fonts from './fonts';

// Write your styles in `css` tag
const header = css`
  text-transform: uppercase;
  font-family: ${fonts.heading};
  font-size: ${modularScale(2)};

  ${hiDPI(1.5)} {
    font-size: ${modularScale(2.5)};
  }
`;

// Then use it as a class name
<h1 class={header}>Hello world</h1>;

You can use imported variables and functions for logic inside the CSS code. They will be evaluated at build time.

If you're using React, you can use the styled helper, which makes it easy to write React components with dynamic styles with a styled-component like syntax:

import { styled } from 'linaria/react';
import { families, sizes } from './fonts';

// Write your styles in `styled` tag
const Title = styled.h1`
  font-family: ${families.serif};
`;

const Container = styled.div`
  font-size: ${sizes.medium}px;
  color: ${props => props.color};
  border: 1px solid red;

  &:hover {
    border-color: blue;
  }

  ${Title} {
    margin-bottom: 24px;
  }
`;

// Then use the resulting component
<Container color="#333">
  <Title>Hello world</Title>
</Container>;

Dynamic styles will be applied using CSS custom properties (aka CSS variables) and don't require any runtime.

Documentation

Trade-offs

  • No IE11 support when using dynamic styles in components with styled, since it uses CSS custom properties

  • Dynamic styles are not supported with css tag. See Dynamic styles with css tag for alternative approaches.

  • Modules used in the CSS rules cannot have side-effects. For example:

    import { css } from 'linaria';
    import colors from './colors';
    
    const title = css`
      color: ${colors.text};
    `;
    

    Here, there should be no side-effects in the colors.js file, or any file it imports. We recommend to move helpers and shared configuration to files without any side-effects.
