Build Status

A Parser for CSS Files written in PHP. Allows extraction of CSS files into a data structure, manipulation of said structure and output as (optimized) CSS.

Usage

Installation using Composer

composer require sabberworm/php-css-parser

Extraction

To use the CSS Parser, create a new instance. The constructor takes the following form:

new \Sabberworm\CSS\Parser($css);

To read a file, for example, you’d do the following:

$parser = new \Sabberworm\CSS\Parser(file_get_contents('somefile.css'));
$cssDocument = $parser->parse();

The resulting CSS document structure can be manipulated prior to being output.

Options

Charset

The charset option is used only if no @charset declaration is found in the CSS file. UTF-8 is the default, so you won’t have to create a settings object at all if you don’t intend to change that.

$settings = \Sabberworm\CSS\Settings::create()
    ->withDefaultCharset('windows-1252');
$parser = new \Sabberworm\CSS\Parser($css, $settings);

Strict parsing

To have the parser choke on invalid rules, supply a thusly configured \Sabberworm\CSS\Settings object:

$parser = new \Sabberworm\CSS\Parser(
    file_get_contents('somefile.css'),
    \Sabberworm\CSS\Settings::create()->beStrict()
);

Disable multibyte functions

To achieve faster parsing, you can choose to have PHP-CSS-Parser use regular string functions instead of mb_* functions. This should work fine in most cases, even for UTF-8 files, as all the multibyte characters are in string literals. Still it’s not recommended using this with input you have no control over as it’s not thoroughly covered by test cases.

$settings = \Sabberworm\CSS\Settings::create()->withMultibyteSupport(false);
$parser = new \Sabberworm\CSS\Parser($css, $settings);

Manipulation

The resulting data structure consists mainly of five basic types: CSSList, RuleSet, Rule, Selector and Value. There are two additional types used: Import and Charset, which you won’t use often.

CSSList

CSSList represents a generic CSS container, most likely containing declaration blocks (rule sets with a selector), but it may also contain at-rules, charset declarations, etc. CSSList has the following concrete subtypes:

  • Document – representing the root of a CSS file.
  • MediaQuery – represents a subsection of a CSSList that only applies to an output device matching the contained media query.

To access the items stored in a CSSList – like the document you got back when calling $parser->parse() –, use getContents(), then iterate over that collection and use instanceof to check whether you’re dealing with another CSSList, a RuleSet, a Import or a Charset.

To append a new item (selector, media query, etc.) to an existing CSSList, construct it using the constructor for this class and use the append($oItem) method.

RuleSet

RuleSet is a container for individual rules. The most common form of a rule set is one constrained by a selector. The following concrete subtypes exist:

  • AtRuleSet – for generic at-rules which do not match the ones specifically mentioned like @import, @charset or @media. A common example for this is @font-face.
  • DeclarationBlock – a RuleSet constrained by a Selector; contains an array of selector objects (comma-separated in the CSS) as well as the rules to be applied to the matching elements.

Note: A CSSList can contain other CSSLists (and Imports as well as a Charset), while a RuleSet can only contain Rules.

If you want to manipulate a RuleSet, use the methods addRule(Rule $rule), getRules() and removeRule($rule) (which accepts either a Rule instance or a rule name; optionally suffixed by a dash to remove all related rules).

Rule

Rules just have a key (the rule) and a value. These values are all instances of a Value.

Value

Value is an abstract class that only defines the render method. The concrete subclasses for atomic value types are:

  • Size – consists of a numeric size value and a unit.
  • Color – colors can be input in the form #rrggbb, #rgb or schema(val1, val2, …) but are always stored as an array of ('s' => val1, 'c' => val2, 'h' => val3, …) and output in the second form.
  • CSSString – this is just a wrapper for quoted strings to distinguish them from keywords; always output with double quotes.
  • URL – URLs in CSS; always output in URL("") notation.

There is another abstract subclass of Value, ValueList. A ValueList represents a lists of Values, separated by some separation character (mostly ,, whitespace, or /). There are two types of ValueLists:

  • RuleValueList – The default type, used to represent all multi-valued rules like font: bold 12px/3 Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif; (where the value would be a whitespace-separated list of the primitive value bold, a slash-separated list and a comma-separated list).
  • CSSFunction – A special kind of value that also contains a function name and where the values are the function’s arguments. Also handles equals-sign-separated argument lists like filter: alpha(opacity=90);.

Convenience methods

There are a few convenience methods on Document to ease finding, manipulating and deleting rules:

  • getAllDeclarationBlocks() – does what it says; no matter how deeply nested your selectors are. Aliased as getAllSelectors().
  • getAllRuleSets() – does what it says; no matter how deeply nested your rule sets are.
  • getAllValues() – finds all Value objects inside Rules.

To-Do

  • More convenience methods (like selectorsWithElement($sId/Class/TagName), attributesOfType($type), removeAttributesOfType($type))
  • Real multibyte support. Currently, only multibyte charsets whose first 255 code points take up only one byte and are identical with ASCII are supported (yes, UTF-8 fits this description).
  • Named color support (using Color instead of an anonymous string literal)

Use cases

Use Parser to prepend an ID to all selectors

$myId = "#my_id";
$parser = new \Sabberworm\CSS\Parser($css);
$cssDocument = $parser->parse();
foreach ($cssDocument->getAllDeclarationBlocks() as $block) {
    foreach ($block->getSelectors() as $selector) {
        // Loop over all selector parts (the comma-separated strings in a
        // selector) and prepend the ID.
        $selector->setSelector($myId.' '.$selector->getSelector());
    }
}

Shrink all absolute sizes to half

$parser = new \Sabberworm\CSS\Parser($css);
$cssDocument = $parser->parse();
foreach ($cssDocument->getAllValues() as $value) {
    if ($value instanceof CSSSize && !$value->isRelative()) {
        $value->setSize($value->getSize() / 2);
    }
}

Remove unwanted rules

$parser = new \Sabberworm\CSS\Parser($css);
$cssDocument = $parser->parse();
foreach($cssDocument->getAllRuleSets() as $oRuleSet) {
    // Note that the added dash will make this remove all rules starting with
    // `font-` (like `font-size`, `font-weight`, etc.) as well as a potential
    // `font-rule`.
    $oRuleSet->removeRule('font-'); 
    $oRuleSet->removeRule('cursor');
}

Output

To output the entire CSS document into a variable, just use ->render():

$parser = new \Sabberworm\CSS\Parser(file_get_contents('somefile.css'));
$cssDocument = $parser->parse();
print $cssDocument->render();

If you want to format the output, pass an instance of type \Sabberworm\CSS\OutputFormat:

$format = \Sabberworm\CSS\OutputFormat::create()
    ->indentWithSpaces(4)->setSpaceBetweenRules("\n");
print $cssDocument->render($format);

Or use one of the predefined formats:

print $cssDocument->render(Sabberworm\CSS\OutputFormat::createPretty());
print $cssDocument->render(Sabberworm\CSS\OutputFormat::createCompact());

To see what you can do with output formatting, look at the tests in tests/OutputFormatTest.php.

Examples

Example 1 (At-Rules)

Input

@charset "utf-8";

@font-face {
  font-family: "CrassRoots";
  src: url("../media/cr.ttf");
}

html, body {
    font-size: 1.6em;
}

@keyframes mymove {
    from { top: 0px; }
    to { top: 200px; }
}
