What is CSS in JS?
I have already created a video about this on the Cules Coding youtube channel.
Why CSS in JS?
Suppose you have a large-scale application with a lot of components.
Each component has different styles. So you add class names to them. Those class names have some styling.
Now it is easy to mess up with component names like the picture below.
And your whole layout breaks.
How can this problem be solved?
The solution is
Scoping CSS. Instead of writing css globally in css styles, what if we can write them inside
the component. Then the css styles won't affect other components.
But how do we do something like this?
It will add a unique hash to the class name. Just because the hash will be unique, that's why all the components will have a different style. Now we have Scoping CSS.
How do we write CSS in JS?
There are bunch of libraries out there. Popular ones are:
I like the Styled Component most. You can use whatever you want.
Don't think that all you can do with css-in-js is write scoping Css.
There are a lot of features that those libraries provide us. Like theming, props adaption, extending style, and so on.
