  assert.equal result, output

API

shift[engine](string, options, callback)

Preprocessing

Sometimes you might need to hack in a feature to the language. Like right now, stylus doesn't support multiline values for css attributes, so you might add it like this:

input   = '''
div
  box-shadow: 0 -2px 2px  hsl(220, 20%, 40%),
    0 -10px 10px          hsl(220, 20%, 20%),
    0 0 15px              black,

    inset 0 5px 1px       hsla(220, 80%, 10%, 0.4), 
    inset 0 0 5px         hsla(220, 80%, 10%, 0.1),
    inset 0 20px 15px     hsla(220, 80%, 100%, 1),

    inset 0 1px 0         hsl(219, 20%, 0%), 

    inset 0 -50px 50px -40px hsla(220, 80%, 10%, .3),  /* gradient to inset */

    inset 0 -1px 0px      hsl(220, 20%, 20%),
    inset 0 -2px 0px      hsl(220, 20%, 40%),
    inset 0 -2px 1px      hsl(220, 20%, 65%)  
'''

output  = '''
div {
  box-shadow: 0 -2px 2px #525f7a, 0 -10px 10px #29303d, 0 0 15px #000, inset 0 5px 1px rgba(5,19,46,0.40), inset 0 0 5px rgba(5,19,46,0.10), inset 0 20px 15px #fff, inset 0 1px 0 #000, inset 0 -50px 50px -40px rgba(5,19,46,0.30), inset 0 -1px 0px #29303d, inset 0 -2px 0px #525f7a, inset 0 -2px 1px #94a0b8;
}

'''
# locally
options   =
  preprocessor: (content) ->
    content.replace /(\s+)(.*),\s+(?:\/\*.*\*\/)?\s*/mg, (_, indent, attribute) ->
      "#{indent}#{attribute.replace(/\s+/g, " ")}, "

shift.stylus input, options, (error, result) ->
  expect(result).toEqual output

# globally
shift.stylus.preprocessor = (content) ->
  content.replace /(\s+)(.*),\s+(?:\/\*.*\*\/)?\s*/mg, (_, indent, attribute) ->
    "#{indent}#{attribute.replace(/\s+/g, " ")}, "
