Compass Placeholder Text Mixin

@mixin input-placeholder($color) {
  &.placeholder {
    color: $color; 
    }
  &:-moz-placeholder {
    color: $color; 
    }
  &::-webkit-input-placeholder {
    color: $color; 
    } 
}

Steps:

  1. Add the .input-placeholder() mixin from _placeholderText.scss to your compass stylesheet (or reference it in an @import statement)
  2. In your stylesheet, call the .input-placeholder() mixin anywhere you want to style your placeholder text.

    .inputCls {
    @include input-placeholder(#cccccc);
    }

Will compile to:

.inputCls.placeholder {
   color: #cccccc;
}
.inputCls:-moz-placeholder {
    color: #cccccc;
          }
 .inputCls::-webkit-input-placeholder {
     color: #cccccc;
  }
