Another link color mixin

You know, I just checked, and Compass does include something like this. Oh well. Compass splits the difference between this mixin and the one I posted the other day. Compass is built for reusability within any project, and not to be changed — just used. This one is built to be used within my project as the mixin, not outside variables, defines my default colors.

If I want to reuse it, I’ll have to make some adjustments to it — namely I’ll have to define different colors. That’s obviously not ideal for a mixin library, where you need to be all things to all people, but it makes perfect sense here. Not all mixins need to be reused outside of your project.

@mixin links($link: '#7ab4e5', $visited: '#7ab4e5', $hover: '#e62c25', $active: 'lighten($hover, 10%)', $focus: $hover, $transition: '.15s color ease-in-out') {
&:link { color: $link; }
&:visited { color: $visited; }
&:hover { color: $hover; }
&:active { color: $active; }
&:focus { color: $focus; }
@include transition($transition);

Usage - all arguments are optional

a {
@include links(red, blue, green, yellow, purple, 1s all linear);
