	Define a palette mapping specific to branding/style-guide
	colors for your app or product.
$palette: (
	"black": #11120e,
	"white": #fff,
	"blue": #0973d6,
	"orange": #ff9a1f

	Maps themed colors to CSS custom prop names, as defined
	by the theme map's key. Colors reference our $palette map,
	but can also be defined directly after each custom prop key.
$dark-theme: (
	background-0: map-get($palette, "black"),
	background-1: desaturate(lighten(map-get($palette, "black"), 5%), 50%),
	background-2: desaturate(lighten(map-get($palette, "black"), 12%), 35%),
	neutral: desaturate(lighten(map-get($palette, "black"), 50%), 28%),
	foreground: map-get($palette, "white"),
	primary: map-get($palette, "orange")

$light-theme: (
	background-0: map-get($palette, "white"),
	background-1: desaturate(lighten(map-get($palette, "black"), 88%), 10%),
	background-2: desaturate(lighten(map-get($palette, "black"), 80%), 20%),
	neutral: desaturate(lighten(map-get($palette, "black"), 30%), 28%),
	foreground: map-get($palette, "black"),
	primary: map-get($palette, "blue")

	Iterates through $theme-map and returns the key as
	a CSS custom property name, and extracts each primary
	component to be expressed as a comma-separated string
@mixin map-css-custom-props-by-theme($theme) {
	@each $color-key, $color in $theme {
		--color-#{$color-key}: #{red($color), green($color), blue($color)};

	Color function which receives a CSS custom property name, and
	optionally an opacity coefficient, to convert to a CSS color
	expressed in rgba(r,g,b,a) format. 

	NOTE: CSS custom props are defined as a string of the r,g,b components,
	not as a valid CSS/Sass color.

	ALSO NOTE: Within Legacy Sass/SCSS, RGBA() != rgba(). RGBA() refers 
	to the CSS function, not the built-in rgba() Sass function. The CSS 
	RGBA() function is required for this mapping to work. 
@function rgba-color($color-key, $opacity: 1) {
	@return RGBA(var(--color-#{$color-key}), $opacity);
