City of Ghent Style Guide

Colors

Primary and secondary colors

Colors are defined in the $colors SASS map inside the _colors.scss partial.

Tints of colors

We provide a number of tints you can apply to your components in the $tints SASS map.

Using a color in your SASS files

When implementing a color for a component always use the colors() function defined in the _colors.scss partial.

Examples

.my-selector {
  color: color('cyan', 1);
}

This example calculates the color for .my-selector based on the base color cyan and makes it 1 tint darker.

.my-selector {
  color: color('red', -31);
}

This example calculates the color for .my-selector based on the base color red and makes it 3 tints lighter.

Defining colors based on themes

We provide a themify system that allows you to “themify” your components. This means they will change colors based on predefined sub themes.

To make a property themable use the mixin theme() in your component.

The $themes map exists out of multiple keys that define the themes for the style guide. Based on these maps you have to require some basic colors such as color-primary and color-secondary. See the $themes map inside _themes.scss for more information. These form the basic of the theming system. Through a syntax convention you can theme the colors of your components:

  @include theme('background', 'color-primary--lighten-4', 'field-background');

gets transformed by the system to:

  background: #some-hex-value;

It does this by searching for the key color-primary in the $themes map. Everything just before the double dashes gets used as the key value.

It then checks the part after the double dashes -- and strips out lighten or darken (everything before the dash -). Based on that result it applies the color() mixin with the correct parameters.
