The official community of styled components visual primitives for the component age. Use the best bits of ES6 and CSS to style your apps without stress!

styled-components is the result of wondering how we could enhance CSS for styling React component systems. By focusing on a single use case we managed to optimize the experience for developers as well as the output for end users.

Apart from the improved experience for developers, styled-components provides:

Automatic critical CSS: styled-components keeps track of which components are rendered on a page and injects their styles and nothing else, fully automatically. Combined with code splitting, this means your users load the least amount of code necessary. No class name bugs: styled-components generates unique class names for your styles. You never have to worry about duplication, overlap or misspellings.

Easier deletion of CSS: it can be hard to know whether a class name is used somewhere in your codebase. styled-components makes it obvious, as every bit of styling is tied to a specific component. If the component is unused (which tooling can detect) and gets deleted, all its styles get deleted with it.

Simple dynamic styling: adapting the styling of a component based on its props or a global theme is simple and intuitive without having to manually manage dozens of classes.

Painless maintenance: you never have to hunt across different files to find the styling affecting your component, so maintenance is a piece of cake no matter how big your codebase is.

Automatic vendor prefixing: write your CSS to the current standard and let styled-components handle the rest.

You get all of these benefits while still writing the CSS you know and love, just bound to individual components.
