Herman 3.0.0

SassDoc Annotations

Herman supports all the core SassDoc annotations. This page includes samples of every core annotation type, so you can see what they look like in Herman.

@function herman-sample()

aliased as sample-alias(), sample-alias-two()

This is a sample function. You can actually put much more text in here, and include markdown. Lorem markdownum rapite neque loquentis pro inque; nullaque triones promisistis quaque. Non iura oves creatas mixta gente torum Caune. Huius sacra corpora refert celeberrima luctus tibi cornua, nec qui illum poteram, et eundi recalfecit efficiens isdem superi. Alii virginibusque vultus certa socios venae ferrove finis longave, pignus duros nubifer!

Extra Commentary

Herman allows you to write “prose” markdown blocks, to help introduce groups, or add narrative flow between documented items.

Note that while SassDoc allows annotation comments to be separated from the documented code by newlines, Herman considers documentation to be free-floating “prose” if it is separated from documented code by one or more newlines.

Prose blocks can also include examples, and other annotations.

Example

scss
@import 'samples/variables';
.private::after {
  content: $private;
}
css compiled
.private::after {
  content: "for internal use only";
}

@mixin before-sample()

Mixins can optionally accept a @content block, passed in brackets. This example creates a generated element :before the element it is used on.

Parameters & Output

$content: (String)

A value for the content property

$list…: (arglist)

Sass also allows arglists!

@content (code block)

Any other styles that should be applied to the ::before element

{CSS output} (code block)

A ::before pseudo-element, with the content property established, and any passed-in styled applied.

Example

scss
@import 'samples/mixins-functions';

.item {
  @include before-sample('Test One: ') {
    color: red;
  }
}
css compiled
.item::before {
  content: "Test One: ";
  color: red;
}
