Say goodbye to your unwanted css rules with this grunt plugin.

Unmaintained module

Note: I have stopped using grunt, gulp or other tasks runners in favor of NPM sripts only. You can send pull requests if you wish but I won't work on this module anymore.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-css-byebye --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


The "cssbyebye" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named cssbyebye to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  cssbyebye: {
    options: {
      // Task-specific options go here.
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.



Type: [Mixed] Default value: []

An array that contains strings (CSS selectors) or regular expressions.

Usage Examples

In this example, it would match a rule with the exact selector .hello and any rule that contains a class that starts with .world.

  cssbyebye: {
    mystyles: {
      options: {
        rulesToRemove: ['.hello', /.*\.world.*/]
      files: {
        'mystyles.css': ['byebye/mystyles.css']


In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.


Release 0.2.0

First public release. Check CSS Byebye

You can’t perform that action at this time.
