Color functions

The following functions are include when using one of the three collection options (all, general or sections).

Without the included functions the colors can be accessed through map-deep-get

Example map structure

$eb-colors: (
  '[colorname]': map-get($eb-colors-colors, 'key'),

Background (background-color: & color:)

Sets both background-color and color, to ensure correct usage

@import "node_modules/@ekstra-bladet/eb-colors/src/all";

.selector {
  @include .bg--[colorname];

foreground (color:)

Returns the main color

@import "node_modules/@ekstra-bladet/eb-colors/src/all";

.selector {
  color: var(--color--[colorname]);

Mapping colors

Each of general colors $eb-colors-general (found in src/general) & section colors $eb-colors-sections (found in src/sections) are mapped from all colors $eb-colors-colors

$eb-color-[new-map-name]: (
  'sport' : map-get($eb-colors-colors, 'key'),

CSS classes

CSS classes are generated after the following pattern

.bg--[sectionname] {
    background-color: [main section color];
    color: [foreground section color];

.color--[sectionname] {
    color: [main section color];

/** Real world example */
.bg--eb {
    background-color: var(--color--eb);
    color: var(--fgcolor--eb);

.color--eb {
    color: var(--color--eb);

Working example

<div class="bg--eb">
    This will have the eb background color and the corresponding foreground color.
