Hocus Pocus: PostCSS to finish the trilogy

CSS & HTML, 26 January 2017

It got a lot of proposed solutions, including a Sass and a future-css one using CSS Aliases. In 2016, a year ago, I revisited the idea with CSS Custom Selectors and CSSNext. For this year, I’m rounding up the trilogy with a PostCSS plugin of my own.
