Sprite Generator for brunch. It uses Spritesmith and spritesheet-templates to generate sprites in language agnostic styles.

Installation

If using Less, SASS, etc., this should be ordered before their brunch compilers in package.json so that sprite styles compile before other styles. To improve speed, consider an engine such as canvassmith or gmsmith. Check out the Spritesmith website for details.

Config

sprites: {
    path: 'app/assets/images/sprites', // Path to your sprites folder
    destCSS: 'app/css/sprites.css', // Destination sass/less/stylus files
    destSprites: 'app/assets' // Destination of generated sprite files
    cssFormat: 'css', // less, sass, scss, stylus
    algorithm: 'top-down', // algorithm: top-down, left-right, diagonal (\ format), alt-diagonal
    engine: 'pixelsmith', // pixelsmith, canvassmith, gmsmith
    imgOpts: {
        format: 'auto', // auto, jpg, png (If auto is used and there is png and jpg in a folder the sprite will be jpg)
        quality: 90 // Quality of the output image
    }
}

Usage

It expects the following folder structure and uses the folder name as first value and the filename as the second

app/assets/images/sprites/icons
    icona.png
    iconb.png
app/assets/images/sprites/backgrounds

For CSS languages/preprocessors, the plugin only generates the variables and the mixins. The mixins have to be called from another stylesheet to be included in your project.

Less Example

.icon-name {
  .sprite(@icon-name);
}

If you want to use git version of plugin, add "sprite-brunch": "git+ssh://git@github.com:aedryan/sprite-brunch.git".
