Fylgja component - Stylelint Config

A sharable stylelint config object that enforces Fylgja's CSS rules.

Extends stylelint-config-recommended.

Installation  # 

npm install @fylgja/stylelint-config --save-dev

Usage  # 

If you've installed @fylgja/stylelint-config, just set your stylelint config to:

"extends": "@fylgja/stylelint-config"

SCSS support found under the Extensions

Extending  # 

Simply add a "rules" key to your config, then add your overrides and additions there.

"extends": "@fylgja/stylelint-config",
"rules": {
"rule-empty-line-before": [
"always-multi-line", {
"except": ["first-nested"],
"ignore": ["after-comment"]

Extensions  # 

While the core rules already take preprocessors in account,

some times extra rules are needed, to add support for a specific preprocessor.

SCSS  # 

We have added the stylelint plugin SCSS to better support SCSS styles

To include these rules, add scss to the end of the extend path

"extends": "@fylgja/stylelint-config/scss",

For more infomation checkout the SCSS DOC.

LESS  # 

We have a super small config to unset some rules, that conflict with the LESS naming.

"extends": "@fylgja/stylelint-config/less",

For more infomation checkout the LESS DOC.

Order  # 

We do follow a specific style of ordering our code, it's is described in our CSS order DOC.

Rules  # 

For information on what each rule does. Checkout the original DOC or the rules folder on Stylelint Github Page.

Since we extend on the stylelint-config-recommended. You should also checkout the rules set there.

Down here are only the rules we have set.

We have not set any [allowed/disallowed]-list values. it's better to set those project specific, if needed.

Custom Property

  • custom-property-empty-line-before: never


  • declaration-colon-newline-after: null
    • Works better with Prettier and does not always makes sense anyway. So giving freedom to the dev.
  • declaration-block-no-redundant-longhand-properties: true
  • declaration-block-semicolon-newline-before: never-multi-line
    • Would be never if this was an option
  • declaration-empty-line-before: never

General / Sheet

  • indentation: 4
  • max-line-length: 80
    • ignorePattern: URI's
    • severity: warning
  • max-nesting-depth: 5
    • 5 allows easier setting of if's and mixins. The CSS dept is enforced via selector-max.

    • severity: warning

  • media-feature-name-no-unknown: true
    • severity: warning

Notes about number-leading-zero. Just as Bootstrap & Google we support no leading zero's.

But since pretty much all compilers and prettier use leading zero's, we have kept the rule set to the default value.
