I'm using GeoServer for the publication of my maps. To generate a style for a map I mostly use the SLD's generated by QGIS. But since these generated SLD's don't always cover the whole style made in QGIS (no labels etc.) I'm using the CSS plugin for GeoServer.

The manaul for this is quite comprehensive but not enough for me. I'm looking for a list with all the CSS commands (parameters). Can anyone direct me to such a list?

Probably this page of the GeoServer CSS Manual.

    Should Ian include the whole page contents? It's a property reference... The response inline would be very large, and would get outdated as new properties are added to the language. Maybe I misunderstood your comment :-) Nov 3, 2016 at 18:41
  • If that page dies then geoserver will probably be dead too

  • This was the list I was looking for, but I think there are even more parameters. Thanks @iant Nov 4, 2016 at 8:00
  • This is the code translating CSS into SLD (that's how CSS works, GeoServer cannot deal directly with it): github.com/geotools/geotools/blob/master/modules/unsupported/… If you can find parameters that are not yet documented, let us know Nov 4, 2016 at 12:41
