Space

Space refers to margin and padding controls. In order to keep things as simple as possible early on, we recommend that you use the longhand version.

import { useState } from 'react'
import { Editor, Inputs, styled, codegen } from '@compai/css-gui'

export const SpaceExample = () => {
  const [styles, setStyles] = useState({
    marginTop: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
    marginRight: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
    marginLeft: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
    marginBottom: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
    paddingTop: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
    paddingRight: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
    paddingLeft: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
    paddingBottom: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
  })

  return (
    <div>
      <Editor styles={styles} onChange={setStyles}>
        <Inputs.MarginTop />
        <Inputs.MarginRight />
        <Inputs.MarginBottom />
        <Inputs.MarginLeft />
        <Inputs.PaddingTop />
        <Inputs.PaddingRight />
        <Inputs.PaddingBottom />
        <Inputs.PaddingLeft />
      </Editor>
      <div sx={{ border: 'thin solid', borderColor: 'border', mt: [3, 4, 5] }}>
        <styled.p styles={{ ...styles, border: 'thin solid' }}>
          Fun with space!
        </styled.p>
      </div>
      <pre>{codegen.css(styles)}</pre>
      <hr />
      <pre>{JSON.stringify(styles, null, 2)}</pre>
    </div>
  )
}

Padding/Margin Shorthand

If desirable, you can also use the spacing shorthand to target all directions at once.

import { useState } from 'react'
import { Editor, Inputs, styled, codegen } from '@compai/css-gui'

export const SpaceExample = () => {
  const [styles, setStyles] = useState({
    margin: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
    padding: { value: 16, unit: 'px' },
  })

  return (
    <div>
      <Editor styles={styles} onChange={setStyles}>
        <Inputs.Margin />
        <Inputs.Padding />
      </Editor>
      <div sx={{ border: 'thin solid', borderColor: 'border', mt: [3, 4, 5] }}>
        <styled.p styles={{ ...styles, border: 'thin solid' }}>
          Fun with space!
        </styled.p>
      </div>
      <pre>{codegen.css(styles)}</pre>
      <hr />
      <pre>{JSON.stringify(styles, null, 2)}</pre>
    </div>
  )
}
