PostCSS-cssnext is a PostCSS plugin that helps you to use the latest CSS syntax today. It transforms new CSS specs into more compatible CSS so you don't need to wait for browser support. You can literally write future-proof CSS and forget old preprocessor specific syntax.

Prior to 2015, CSS was frustrating by not having any specification for features we were looking for. No variables, no math, no color manipulation & no customization. Things are going to change soon since a lot of work has been made by the W3C to write new specs to make our life easier. With cssnext, you can start using some new features today!
In a near future, browsers will implement new CSS specifications. As time passes, cssnext will remove some transformations that won't be necessary anymore. And maybe one day, you will be able to completely remove cssnext from your workflow without touching your CSS.
