RCSS, who woulda thought!


DRY, DRY!, DRY!!

Rails Developer's dream, take something like this:

graph.css:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12

    #vertgraph li.critical { 
      left: 25px; 
      background-position: 0px bottom !important; 
    }
    #vertgraph li.high { 
      left: 100px; 
      background-position: -28px bottom !important; 
    }
    #vertgraph li.medium { 
      left: 175px; 
      background-position: -56px bottom !important; 
    }
    #vertgraph li.low { 
      left: 250px; 
      background-position: -84px bottom !important; 
    }
    #vertgraph li.info { 
      left: 325px; 
      background-position: -112px bottom !important; 
    }

And using rcss turn it into this:

graph.rcss:

1

    <% %w{critical high medium low info}.each do | severity, i | %>
      #vertgraph li.<%= severity %> { 
        left: <%= 25 * (3 * i + 1) %>px; 
        background-position: <%= i * 28 %>px bottom !important; 
      }
    <% end %>
