Minimise your CSS files using by compressing and combining them into one file. Reduce HTTP requests, file size, and save bandwidth.

mini_css compresses using Rainpress, which is a YUI like CSS compressor built in Ruby, and then merges all the CSS into one file. You can now compress hundreds of CSS files into one file, with one command.

Installation

gem install mini_css

Usage

Using mini_css is simple! You can go about it two ways:

  1. You can run it from the command line and use it as part of your deployment proceedure.
  2. You can use it as a class and use the compressed results as necessary.

Using mini_css from the command line

Using mini_css from the command line is too simple:

mini_css [-o output_file] file_name[ file_name2 ...]

You can compress one CSS file, or compress more than one, and mash them together as one big compressed file.

You can specify the location and name of the output file; it defaults to mini_cssified.css in the current working directory.

Using mini_css as a class

To use mini_css as a class, simply require the right files and you're away.

require 'rubygems'
require 'mini_css'

files = [] # Fill this aray with file paths.
Mini_CSS.compress(files) # mini_css will open them all, compress them, and mash them together

To-Do

  • Parse out @import statements, try to associate them with local files and compress them into the same files too, removing the @import statements as we go.
