API Reference

cssutil.build(files, [opts], callback)

Builds an array of CSS/LESS files, concatenating and minifying them.

files is an array of file paths to read. The order of the files is preserved when concatenating. If a file in files is a .less file, it will be compiled and the CSS output will be used.

opts is an optional object containing the configuration settings. The minify option will disable minification when it is false. The paths option is an array of paths to look for the files imported by LESS @imports. The source file directory is always added to this when compiling. The compressProviderId option will let you choose a css compressor, default is 0(clean-css), you can switch this option to 1 to use ycssmin.

callback is a function that will be called with the result. It uses the normal Node callback signature of (error, result).
