How to use Media Query with Purescript CSS

I’m trying to declare a media query for the CSS I’m using, written with purescript-css. Does anyone have a snippet that demonstrates this? The Media Query type in CSS.Stylesheet is

MediaQuery (Maybe NotOrOnly) MediaType (NonEmpty Array Feature)

I’m not sure where to put this. Then I see

query :: MediaType -> NonEmpty Array Feature -> CSS -> CSS

If anyone has an example of this it would be greatly appreciated.

Can you post a snippet of what you’re working on? I’m looking through the documentation for purescript-css and it looks like there might be multiple ways to do things, so it would be helpful to see what you have so far.

I’m using it like so

import Halogen.HTML.CSS         as HCSS

stylesheet = HCSS.stylesheet do

where body is a CSS function like

body :: CSS.CSS
body = 
  CSS.fromString "body" ? do
    margin 0.0

I think I understand now actually. I found the CSS.Media module which I was not looking at earlier and there is a function “screen” which is the MediaType I need for the query function. It also has a maxWidth function so guessing I can set it like this (haven’t checked this)

query screen (singleton [maxWidth $ CSS.px 1200.0]) myCSS

This would return a CSS so I’m guessing I can do this inside the CSS definitions I already have.

I think you’re right. I was able to get this:

media :: CSS.CSS
media = CSS.query CSS.Media.screen features bodyStyle
bodyStyle :: CSS.CSS
bodyStyle = CSS.body (CSS.backgroundColor $ Color.rgb 255 0 0)
features :: Data.NonEmpty.NonEmpty Array CSS.Feature
features = Data.NonEmpty.singleton $ CSS.Media.maxWidth $ CSS.px 1000.0

Which it turns into:

@media screen and (max-width: 1000.0px) { body { background-color: hsl(0.0, 100.0%, 50.0%) }

I wasn’t sure how to add it to the page stylesheet, but Halogen covers that.
