Hello,

Is there any method to pass variables to a css file? Requirements::javascriptTemplate makes it for javascript files. In the API there is nothing like Requirements::CSSTemplate.

My aim is to extend the siteconfig with some basic fields like Color1, Color2, Color3 and using variables in the css file like background:color:$SiteConfig.Color1. So that I can build a basic theme editor in the backend and let users change basic styling without touching css files.

Is there anybody who succeeded this?

Thank you for any feedback, help, idea..

There isn't anything like this. For any projects which I needed complex CSS I've used the compass (sass) module http://silverstripe.org/compass-module/.

You could also link via Requirements::css() to be PHP file and include variables in that. An example - http://davidwalsh.name/css-variables-php-dynamic
