Stitches vs Stylus: What are the differences?
Developers describe Stitches as "The modern CSS-in-JS library with near-zero runtime". It is a fully-typed CSS-in-JS library featuring near-zero runtime, server-side rendering, multi-variant support, and a best-in-class developer experience. On the other hand, Stylus is detailed as "Expressive, robust, feature-rich CSS language built for nodejs". 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.
Stitches and Stylus can be primarily classified as "CSS Pre-processors / Extensions" tools.
Stylus is an open source tool with 10.5K GitHub stars and 1.12K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Stylus's open source repository on GitHub.

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.
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)
