#selector-max-universal

Limit the number of universal selectors in a selector.

    * {}
/** ↑
 * This universal selector */

This rule resolves nested selectors before counting the number of universal 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 violations:

* * * {}
* * {
  & * {}
}
* * {
  & > * {}
}

The following patterns are not considered violations:

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