Basic usage

Add a text color

Add a color to the text variables group.

export default {
variables: {
text: {
primary: '

Apply the custom color:

<p class="fg:primary"></p>

See the Color Customization documentation to learn more about color variable behavior.

Apply a text color

Apply the defined text-* variables using the inherited syntaxes color, text-decoration-color, text-decoration, text-fill-color, caret-color.

<html class="light">
<body class="fg:$(text-neutral)">equals</body>
<body class="fg:text-neutral">equals</body>
<body class="fg:neutral"></body>

Typically, we set the foreground color of elements using fg:color rather than the text-specific text:color.

<p class="text:pink">text-fill-color properity</p>
<p class="fg:pink">color properity</p>

Apply text color to any syntax

Besides inheriting the above rules, you can use text-* to access global text color variables in other syntax.

<svg class="stroke:text-light"></svg>

Escape inherited text colors

Use $(blue) to apply instead of

<p class="fg:$(blue)"></p>
