Replacing Code with Visual Studio CodeDecember 22, 2019
Today I started the process of moving from Stylus to Sass. As a part of that process I also switched to using CSS variables over Stylus or Sass variables. In order to make that transition easy I used find and replace to replace each
--variable - as a manual process this wasn't too bad. I only had about 20 variables to replace.
Changing all of their appearances however to start with
var(--variable) would've been painful. Fortunately I leveraged VS Code's find and replace with regex to make it painless.
(--\w+(?:-\w*)+) found all of the CSS variables and I replaced them with
$0 is the name of the variable I captured originally. Easy!
