Family.scss

What is it ?

@LukyVj

It's a Sass mixin library, that makes the use of nth-x selector easier

⚡️

Family.scss

What is a NTH selector ?

@LukyVj

it's a :pseudo-class selector, that will allow you to select one or more element, based on their order of appearance into the parent , and some other parameters you define

Family.scss

What's the use of it ?

@LukyVj

Just see it as a set of shorthand

ul li {
  @include first(3){
    @include active;
  }
}
ul li:nth-child(-n + 3) { 
  background: red; 
  color: #fff; 
}

Family.scss

What's the use of it

@LukyVj

Just see it as a set of shorthands

ul li {
  @include between(3, 6){
    @include active;
  }
}

 

ul li:nth-child(n+3):nth-child(-n+6) { 
  background: red; 
  color: #fff; 
}

Family.scss

@LukyVj

Some mixins takes one or more parameters

@include after-first(5)
@include odd-between(3, 13)
@include all-but(5)
@include n-between(3, 5, 30)

Some others didn't

@include odd()
@include last-child()
@include first-last()
@include unique()

And there is also quantity-queries 🎉

@include first-of(10)
@include at-least(10)
@include last-of(10)
@include at-most(10)
@include in-between(5,10)
