CSS Import Resolver Cli
A tool which parses the CSS @import url() statement and adds the content of the file inline to the CSS. The output is by default written to the STDOUT, or using the -o option written to a file.
This tool is available as part of "The Joy of Unix in Windows Tool Bundle":
In CSS you can refer to other CSS files thus:
Such reference makes the code easy to read and maintain, but on the performance side it takes a hit---because the browser needs to make multiple HTTP requests to render this page (more detail).
This tool reads such CSS files and includes the content of the @import'ed file in the main CSS.
This can be done as a build time processing for building faster sites.
To list the command-line options:
$ java -jar css-import-resolver-NN-jar-with-dependencies.jar -h
- The parsing is done using RegularExpression, so when @import statements are encountered inside CSS comments, they are also expanded.
- HTTP urls are not processed.
