CSS Variables

Post by Albert Wiersch » Wed May 25, 2016 7:36 pm

The next minor update of CSE HTML Validator (which will be v16.04) will support CSS variables.

I was wondering if anyone here uses them or has played with them? Of course the biggest problem is browser support. No version of Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge supports CSS variables... but current versions of Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Safari do support them.

Here are some good links:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc ... _variables

This person thinks they're a bad idea:

Interesting. I would think a preprocessor would make more sense, but as much as it interests me, I haven't tackled it yet.

You're throwing all kinds of neat things in this next build. = )
