Usage

The module exports the cssmin function, so you can use it with :

var cssmin = require('cssmin').cssmin;

The function cssmin takes two arguments :

  • input : the CSS content you want to minimize.
  • linebreakpos : the number of characters before the end of the line. If empty, the output will have only one line.

Example :

var puts = require('util').puts,
fs = require('fs'),
cssmin = require('./cssmin').cssmin;
var css = fs.readFileSync("/Any/Random/CSS/File.css", encoding='utf8');
var min = cssmin(css);
puts(min);
