Preview/Print with CSS from Drafts

Posted by comfortablynick, Last update almost 6 years ago

Shows a list of drafts with “css” tag, and use the CSS for preview and printing if desired.

Action will build a prompt with the titles of all “css” tag drafts, sorted by last modified.

Example CSS (place in a draft tagged with “css” to work with this action):

/* Pretty (Light) */
@charset="utf-8";html{font-size:97%;font-family:"Avenir";line-height:1.6}body{background:#fff;color:#777}h1{color:#313131;font-weight:700;line-height:1.3}h2{color:#ea4c89;font-weight:700}h3{color:#09c;font-weight:700}strong,b{color:#d19a66}em,i{color:#c678dd}a{color:#00a5d8;text-decoration:none}code,pre{font-size:14px}pre{overflow:auto;width:auto;background-color:#f2f9f7;border:1px solid #d5ece4;border-radius:3px;padding:15px;color:#7f835d}pre code{overflow:auto;width:auto;background-color:#f2f9f7;color:#7f835d;border:none;padding:0;white-space:pre-wrap;word-wrap:break-word}code{background-color:#f2f9f7;border:1px solid #d5ece4;border-radius:3px;padding:1px 2px 1px 2px;color:#7f835d}table{margin:1em;border-collapse:collapse;width:90%}td,th{padding:.5em;border:1px solid #d5ece4}thead{background:#f6f6f7}blockquote{color:#bcbdbf;font-style:italic;border-left:4px solid #b6e5e1;padding:0 18px}hr{border:none;border-bottom:1px dotted #b6e5e1}div.footnotes{font-size:14px}@media (min-device-width:481px){body{margin:auto;max-width:600px}}
