Pimp your Gtk application with CSS

Image
  GTK is a powerful framework for building GUI application in Linux and other OSes. It is written in C, but there is binding for many programing languages like Python. GTK uses a subset of CSS for styling your application. I have made a little Python Demo Application to show how to pimp your application like a pimp. It shows the basics of how to use a CSS file with GTK python bindings and  the basics of how to write custom styling in CSS for your GTK application.  It is not meant to be good looking 😊, but to show how the styling works. It shows the basics like colors, padding, margins, borders etc, but also more advanced features like transitions and animations.

Using Sass in Visual Studio Code

Image
  Sass is a great way to make your .css in a more structured way that is easier to maintain. The upstrean version is made in Ruby, but here is many other versions written in other languages. I want to use libsass writen in C++ and the python-libsass python bindings there can be run from a commandline. I like to keep the requirements for my projects down, and Ruby or Node need a lot of packages to make Sass work and I need something that can be used for creating .css for Gtk applications, that can be build into packages and Node & Ruby will add a lot of unneeded requirement just to use Sass for non-web applications.
