gulp-sass-image

Gulp plugin for polyfilling the compass imagehelper functions to node-sass enviroments.

This plugin generates a helper .scss file, which you have to @import into your own sass project. The generated sass file acts as a polyfill: Inside the generated file is a sass map which contains all the image infos including a inlined data version. The default mustache template also outputs %placeholders for each image. Feel free to modify the template to your needs. Additional there are the following helper function which mimic the native functions from Compass:

Supported Compass functions

  • inline-image($image): Embeds the contents of an image directly inside your stylesheet. All images are currently base64 encoded, in a future version SVG images will be UTF-8 encoded.
  • image-width($image): Returns the width of the image found at the path supplied by $image. Warning, some SVG images may fail here and return null.
  • image-height($image) Returns the height of the image found at the path supplied by $image. Warning, some SVG images may fail here and return null.
  • image-url($image, $only-path: false, $cache-buster: false)
    Generates a path to an asset found relative to the project's images directory. Passing a true value as the second argument will cause only the path to be returned instead of a url() function The third argument is used to control the cache buster on a per-use basis. When set to false no cache buster will be used. When true a md5-hash of the file is appended to the url. When a string, that value will be used as the cache buster. Be sure to set images_path and css_path options.
  • image-exists($image): Returns true if the image exists in our helper file. (Not part of compass, but still its here)

Install

npm install gulp-sass-image --save-dev

Example Usage

gulp < 4

var sassImage = require('gulp-sass-image');

gulp.task('sass-image', function () {
    return gulp.src('_sources/images/**/*.+(jpeg|jpg|png|gif|svg)')
        .pipe(compassImagehelper({
            targetFile: '_generated-imagehelper.scss', // default target filename is '_sass-image.scss'
            // template: 'your-sass-image-template.mustache',
            images_path: 'assets/images/',
            css_path: 'assets/css/',
            prefix: 'icon-'
        }))
        .pipe(gulp.dest('sass'));
});

gulp >= 4

var sassImage = require('gulp-sass-image');

function image() {
    return gulp.src('_sources/images/**/*.+(jpeg|jpg|png|gif|svg)')
        .pipe(compassImagehelper({
            targetFile: '_generated-imagehelper.scss', // default target filename is '_sass-image.scss'
            // template: 'your-sass-image-template.mustache',
            images_path: 'assets/images/',
            css_path: 'assets/css/',
            prefix: 'icon-'
        }))
        .pipe(gulp.dest('sass'));
}

exports.image = image;

For a working usage example look into the included example project.

Options

  • template Path to your custom mustache template.
  • targetFile Destination file name
  • images_path The path to your images folder
  • css_path The path to your css folder. This is needed to calculate relative paths
  • http_images_path The full http path to images on the web server. e.g. when set to '/assets/images/' image-url('icon.png') will return 'url("/assets/images/icon.png")'
  • prefix Optional prefix string which can be used in the mustache template
  • includeData By default the base64 encoded data of the images will be placed in the image hash. If you want don't inline your images you can set this to false to disable inline-images. If you are using your own template you have to implement the condition for this to work.
  • createPlaceholder By default placeholder will be created that can be used with @extended. If you don't need this placeholder classes you can set this option to false to disable it. If you are using your own template you have to implement the condition for this to work.

Template variables

Your mustache template can use all of theses properties. The default template only uses a subset from this.

  • items Array of images data
  • items[i].data Data URI string
  • items[i].width Image width in pixels;
  • items[i].height Image height in pixels;
  • items[i].filename Filename with extension;
  • items[i].basename Filename without extension;
  • items[i].dirname Name of the images parent directory;
  • items[i].ext File Extension including dot, e.g. '.png';
  • items[i].path Filepath relative to the project's images directory.
  • items[i].fullname Same as path, but directory separators and dots are replaced by '-'. Useful if you want to generate unique named placeholders.
  • items[i].mime MIME-Type of the file
  • items[i].hash MD5 Hash of the file, used for cache-busting
