Custom props for sharing styles

Being able to define custom props gives you powerful possibilities.

In this guide, we will check how you can share/apply different styles by creating a skeleton style that you can apply to any UI element while your app is in a loading state.

1. Choose method#

Usually, the approach is to create a Skeleton component, right?! CCSS's unique approach twists this logic: Why just not being able to apply this style on any element?! With such approach, you can apply skeleton styles to any real and/or dummy content which will more accurately represent your final design/layout.

2. Create a custom prop#

To register custom props you need to create your own CCSS instance first. For sake of simplicity, we will call our prop is.

We're defining a value-map for the property is where the values getting resolved as a CCSS object.

import ccss from 'ccss'
// is="skeleton" will apply the defined CSS
const variants = {
skeleton: {
background: '#aaa',
color: 'transparent'
ccss.setProps([[['is'], variants, input => ccss(input)]])

3. Use it#

is: 'skeleton'
