Sprite zero is an extremely simple script that automates creating css sprites. It will create a sprite file for every css file you feed it. If you need a sprite file that spans multiple files, you'll have to concatenate them yourself.
To make sure images aren't sprited, you can do any of the following:
- don't use the background shortcut notation
- instead of setting the position at
0 0, use
- in fact, the script will skip every non-pixel offset
This is very alpha
Run this script from the root of your web folder, pass the location of a CSS
file as an argument.
python <path_to_spritezero.py> <path_to_css_file>
Your old CSS file will be replaced. To revert, do
git reset --hard HEAD
