bs_add_variables {bslib}R Documentation

Add low-level theming customizations

Description

Compared to higher-level theme customization available in bs_theme(), these functions are a more direct interface to Bootstrap Sass, and therefore, do nothing to ensure theme customizations are portable between major Bootstrap versions.

Usage

bs_add_variables(
  theme,
  ...,
  .where = "defaults",
  .default_flag = identical(.where, "defaults")
)

bs_add_rules(theme, rules)

bs_add_functions(theme, functions)

bs_add_mixins(theme, mixins)

bs_bundle(theme, ...)

Arguments

theme

a bs_theme() object.

...
  • bs_add_variables(): Should be named Sass variables or values that can be passed in directly to the defaults argument of a sass::sass_layer().

  • bs_bundle(): Should be arguments that can be handled by sass::sass_bundle() to be appended to the theme

.where

Whether to place the variable definitions before other Sass "defaults", after other Sass "declarations", or after other Sass "rules".

.default_flag

Whether or not to add a !default flag (if missing) to variable expressions. It's recommended to keep this as TRUE when .where = "defaults".

rules

Sass rules. Anything understood by sass::as_sass() may be provided (e.g., a list, character vector, sass::sass_file(), etc)

functions

A character vector or sass::sass_file() containing functions definitions.

mixins

A character vector or sass::sass_file() containing mixin definitions.

Value

a modified bs_theme() object.

# Function to preview the styling a (primary) Bootstrap button
library(htmltools)

# Here we start with a theme based on a Bootswatch theme,
# then override some variable defaults

  "font-size-base" = "1.4rem",
  "btn-padding-y" = ".16rem",
  "btn-padding-x" = "2rem"

preview_button(theme)

# If you need to set a variable based on another Bootstrap variable
theme <- bs_add_variables(theme, "body-color" = "$success", .where = "declarations")

# Start a new global theme and add some custom rules that
# use Bootstrap variables to define a custom styling for a
# 'person card'
