PostCSS is a tool for transforming CSS with JS plugins. These plugins can support variables and mixins, transpile future CSS syntax, inline images, and more.

What is Stylus?

Stylus is a revolutionary new language, providing an efficient, dynamic, and expressive way to generate CSS. Supporting both an indented syntax and regular CSS style.

        What are some alternatives to Bourbon, PostCSS, and Stylus?
        Sass
        Sass is an extension of CSS3, adding nested rules, variables, mixins, selector inheritance, and more. It's translated to well-formatted, standard CSS using the command line tool or a web-framework plugin.
        Animate.css
        It is a bunch of cool, fun, and cross-browser animations for you to use in your projects. Great for emphasis, home pages, sliders, and general just-add-water-awesomeness.
        Less
        Less is a CSS pre-processor, meaning that it extends the CSS language, adding features that allow variables, mixins, functions and many other techniques that allow you to make CSS that is more maintainable, themable and extendable.
        Compass
        The compass core framework is a design-agnostic framework that provides common code that would otherwise be duplicated across other frameworks and extensions.
        CSS Modules
        It is a CSS file in which all class names and animation names are scoped locally by default. The key words here are scoped locally. With this, your CSS class names become similar to local variables in JavaScript. It goes into the compiler, and CSS comes out the other side.

        Reviews of Bourbon, PostCSS, and Stylus
        Review ofStylusStylus

        One of the main reasons I use it is that it combines most of what I like but is spread across other preprocessors.

        The option to make functions that take places of properties is amazing. ie. border-radius: "child" $parent-radius can actually be calling a function like border-radius("child", $parent-radius) where using border-radius: 4px would just implement the standard expected result.

        Add in my favorite selector: `^[-1..-1] to get the last raw selector in a nested situation. (its like magic in combination with BEM naming syntax)

        PostCSS essentially allows you to set up your own CSS preprocessor with the features that matter to you. It has a modular plugin-based architecture, which means that if someone comes up with a useful new feature, you can easily add it to your stack as a PostCSS plugin. PreCSS and PostCSS-cssnext are some of my go-to plugins.

        PostCSS handles compiling node-based CSS libraries, including BassCSS (the whole site is only ~85 lines of custom CSS). It also does auto-vendor-prefixing and support for CSS variables.

        Using Bourbon Neat for building a grid. It's easy to implement and is added to the CSS rather than the html which keeps similar modules looking the same.

        We wrote a lot of flexbox and css that needed prefixing. PostCSS + Webpack was the best option here.

        [Free] We use this free Sass framework on just about any project that we work on.

        Used to minify and extend the CSS markup of the framework.
