The Next Generation of CSS-in-JS

emotion is a high performance, lightweight css-in-js library. The core idea comes from Sunil Paiโ€™s glam library and its philosophy is laid out here. The basic idea is simple. You shouldnโ€™t have to sacrifice runtime performance for good developer experience when writing CSS. emotion minimizes the runtime cost of css-in-js dramatically by parsing your styles with PostCSS during compilation instead of at runtime.

It has predictable composition to avoid specificity issues with CSS. With source maps and labels, Emotion has a great developer experience and great performance with heavy caching in production.
