WebKit's position on @property

# Anders Hartvoll Ruud (a day ago)

In Blink there's currently an intent to ship groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!msg/blink-dev/3ygpsew53a0/T7acB6sRBQAJ @property from CSS Properties & Values drafts.css-houdini.org/css-properties-values-api-1/#at-property-rule.

I've noticed that there's an in-progress implementation of CSS.registerProperty in WebKit, and I'm wondering if you're also considering implementing @property, or you have any thoughts on it in general.

In general we are supporting. We've given some feedback here: <https://github.com/w3c/css-houdini-drafts/issues/940 <https://github.com/w3c/css-houdini-drafts/issues/940>>

Thanks for the response. I did read through that issue at some point, but I didn't detect an underlying endorsement. :-)

We like declarative @property and will definitely consider implementing it. We like CSS.registerProperty less since it is a performance footgun.
