DEPRECATED

This version of CSScomb is no longer supported, guys.
We have a new super cool Node.js version instead!

Tool for sorting CSS properties

  • Sorts CSS properties into a logical, consistent order
  • Allows for custom sorting of CSS properties (set it to whatever order you're accustomed to)
  • Parses CSS in style tags and style attributes -- can comb other languages for CSS as well
  • Does not change existing formatting of style sheets --target single or multiple lines of CSS
  • Separates CSS properties into groups (you can have groups of empty strings, if you want)
  • Fully supports CSS2/CSS2.1/CSS3

The CSScomb algorithm simulates a web developer's judgment in ordering CSS styles. You can spend tons of time re-ordering code--moving lines over each other, working around comments in the code, moving multi-line sets of property values, and all sorts of hacking to make your code more readable. CSScomb takes care of these tasks for you. It "thinks" like a person editing the text, not as a blind robot parsing CSS.
