In Cwicly, relative styling refers to the exclusive feature where you, the builder, can target the style of children blocks from the parent block, and modify their styles from said parent’s editor panel. Any and every block can be targeted in the rule editor.
Basically, it is visual CSS Rules.
You no longer need to write CSS and code blindly when trying to apply styling from blocks.
In layman terms, to illustrate this term let’s use the example of genetics. If two parents are redheads, their child will receive the redhead gene. So a gene/style is exclusively passed down/targetable from the parent.
How To - Relative Styling
In the Relative Styling rules, you can manually write your own rules.
This allows even more flexibility, as you can place your .blockclass and :pseudos selectors wherever you want in the rule.
Free-form rules example
Both the .blockclass and :pseudos selectors are proposed.
- .blockclass : placeholder which automatically replaces the current block's class or global class (depending on what you're editing)
