selector-max-id

Limit the number of ID selectors in a selector.

    #foo {}
/** ↑
* This type of selector */

This rule resolves nested selectors before counting the number of ID selectors. Each selector in a selector list is evaluated separately.

The :not() pseudo-class is also evaluated separately. The rule processes the argument as if it were an independent selector, and the result does not count toward the total for the entire selector.

Options

int: Maximum universal selectors allowed.

For example, with 2:

The following patterns are considered problems:

#foo #bar #baz {}
#foo #bar {
& #baz {}
}
#foo #bar {
& > #bar {}
}

The following patterns are not considered problems:

#foo {}
#foo #bar {}
.foo #foo {}
#foo.foo #bar {}
/* each selector in a selector list is evaluated separately */
#foo,
#baz #quux {}
/* `#bar` is inside `:not()`, so it is evaluated separately */
#foo #bar:not(#baz) {}

ignoreContextFunctionalPseudoClasses: ["/regex/", /regex/, "non-regex"]

Ignore selectors inside of specified functional pseudo-classes that provide evaluation contexts.

Given:

[":not", "/^:(h|H)as$/"]

The following patterns are considered problems:

a:matches(#foo) {}

While the following patters are not considered problems:

a:not(#foo) {}
a:has(#foo) {}
