emotion's stylesheet

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import emotionSheet from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@emotion/sheet';



A StyleSheet for css-in-js libraries

yarn add @emotion/sheet
import { StyleSheet } from '@emotion/sheet'

const sheet = new StyleSheet({ key: '', container: document.head })

sheet.insert('html { color: hotpink; }')

Note: This is not useful for server-side rendering, you should implement SSR seperately



type Options = {
  nonce?: string
  key: string
  container: HTMLElement
  speedy?: boolean
  prepend?: boolean


A nonce that will be set on each style tag that the sheet inserts for Content Security Policies.


A DOM Node that the sheet will insert all of it's style tags into, this is useful for inserting styles into iframes.


This will be set as the value of the data-emotion attribute on the style tags that get inserted. This is useful to identify different sheets.


This defines how rules are inserted. If it is true, rules will be inserted with insertRule which is very fast but doesn't allow rules to be edited in DevTools. If it is false, rules will be inserted by appending text nodes to style elements which is much slower than insertRule but allows rules to be edited in DevTools. By default, speedy is enabled in production and disabled in development.


Deprecated: Please use insertionPoint option instead.

This defines where rules are inserted into the container. By default they are appended but this can be changed by using prepend: true option.


This defines specific dom node after which the rules are inserted into the container. You can use a meta tag to specify the specific location:

const head = document.querySelector('head')

// <meta name="emotion-insertion-point" content="">
const emotionInsertionPoint = document.createElement('meta')
emotionInsertionPoint.setAttribute('name', 'emotion-insertion-point')
emotionInsertionPoint.setAttribute('content', '')


// the emotion sheets should be inserted right after the meta tag
const cache = createCache({
  key: 'my-app',
  insertionPoint: emotionInsertionPoint

function App() {
  return (
    <CacheProvider value={cache}>
      <Main />



This method inserts a single rule into the document. It must be a single rule otherwise an error will be thrown in speedy mode which is enabled by default in production.


This method will remove all style tags that were inserted into the document.


This method moves given style elements into sheet's container and put them into internal tags collection. It's can be used for SSRed styles.

Example with all options

import { StyleSheet } from '@emotion/sheet'

const container = document.createElement('div')


const sheet = new StyleSheet({
  nonce: 'some-nonce',
  key: 'some-key',

sheet.insert('html { color: hotpink; }')
