recommended ​​​​​​Option 2: Change npm’s default directory to another directory

$ mkdir ~/.npm-global
$ npm config set prefix '~/.npm-global'

put this in ~/.profile

export PATH=~/.npm-global/bin:$PATH

then update your system variables

source ~/.profile

[ mixin ] rhythm : Margins and Padding

Using our 42px <h1> example from earlier we might do something like:

h1 {
  @include rhythm(3, 1, 0, 2, 42px);

Rhythm syntax

rhythm($lines, $font-size, $offset)

Which compiles to:

h1 {
  margin-top: 1.714285714em;    // 3 units or 24*3 = 72px
  padding-top: .571428571em;    // 1 unit or 24px
  padding-bottom: 0;            // 0 units 0px
  margin-bottom: 1.142857143em; // 2 units or 24*2 = 48px

Functions are similar but return values that are used within a css rule. Let’s say I just want to set all 4 margins on my <h1> with a combination of rhythm units and standard CSS notation.

h1 {
  margin: 0 auto rhythm(3, 42px);

Which compiles to

h1 {
  margin: 0 auto 1.714285714em;

[ mixin ] adjust-font-size-to : font-size and line-height


html {
  font-size: 100%;
  line-height: 1.5em;

* 16px is the default font size for most browsers, so 100% = 16px.
* A relative line-height is always relative to the font-size of the current element,
so in this case the line-height is set to 1.5 em ( 1.5 * 16px = 24px).

2) The fun starts when you begin setting font sizes on other elements.
Let’s say we want to make our <h1>s 42px. We do so using the adjust-font-size-to mixin.

Example :

h1 {
  @include adjust-font-size-to(42px);

2.1) First it sets our font-size relative to our element’s container, which in most cases will be our $base-font-size. So we get something like:

font-size: 2.625em;   // 2.625*16px=42px

2.2) Vertical Rhythm also sets line-height to a factor of our baseline grid, larger than the font-size.
So in the case of our 42px font-size, it sets the line-height to 48px or 2 baseline units or technically speaking

line-height: 1.142857143em;  // 1.142857143 * 42px = 48pxish


3) so what happens when you want to go down in font size?
Let’s say 12px on some meta data.
What we learned above would result in a line height of 24px, which would be akwardly large.
Easy! If we want a line height of 16px so that every 3rd line of our meta data lines up with every 2nd baseline.
We just pass the desired number of rhythm units to the same mixin.

In this case:

.meta {
  @include adjust-font-size-to(12px, 2/3);
