As browsers are upgraded we are approaching the point where CSS variables will be (or already are) safe to use.
P.S. I just did a quick test on Netlify, seems to be working well! Perhaps @biilmann knows more?
I’ve seen this in a number of css libraries. Tachyons, used by a couple of Hugo themes already, uses it as far as I can see.
I’ve been using CSSNext (and that’s what Tachyons uses, too) for variables, and it includes autoprefixer and a bunch of other stuff. It’s awesome!
Yeah, agreed @budparr, before I started using Tachyons, I was hand-rolling a setup similar to the cssnext setup that Tachyons is using. Works quite well.
Gents, brilliant! Thank you!
Sure. Search my Colophon for “barebones” for a decent example of a build pipeline - that’s what I looked at to learn how to do it. Note that pure Tachyons also has a cssnext pipeline included.
Great Colophon btw
