grunt-csscss

Build Status

Grunt task that runs CSSCSS, a CSS redundancy analyzer.

CSSCSS

CSSCSS runs on Ruby (v1.9.x and up), to check Ruby is installed on your machine use ruby -v. To install the CSSCSS gem run gem install csscss command, this will grab the latest version.

Currently grunt-csscss handles all the features for CSSCSS that are available with version 1.3.1.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.0

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-csscss --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-csscss');

Examples

Configuration Example

Basic example of a Grunt config containing the CSSCSS task.

grunt.initConfig({
  csscss: {
    dist: {
      src: ['css/style.css']
    }
  }
});

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-csscss');

grunt.registerTask('default', ['csscss']);

Multiple Files

Running CSSCSS against multiple CSS files. All the files specified in the src array will be analyzed by CSSCSS.

csscss: {
  dist: {
    src: ['css/style.css', 'css/another.css']
  }
}

Specifying Options

Example of using the options.

csscss: {
  options: {
    colorize: false,
    verbose: true,
    outputJson: false,
    minMatch: 2,
    compass: true,
    ignoreProperties: 'padding',
    ignoreSelectors: '.rule-a'
  },
  dist: {
    src: ['css/style.css', 'css/another.css']
  }
}

Analyzing Compass Stylesheet

Example of using CSSCSS to analyze Sass files that are converted using Compass.

csscss: {
  options: {
    require: 'my/config/file.rb'
  },
  dist: {
    src: ['sass/style.scss']
  }
}

Specifying Files with Glob Pattern

Example of using a glob pattern to target many files that should be analysed by CSSCSS. The example below will analyse all the files in the css directory that have an extension of .css.

csscss: {
  dist: {
    src: ['css/*.css']
  }
}

Outputting analysis to a file.

Example of using the Grunt task to output the analysis from CSSCSS to a local file. The example below will create (if necessary) output.json file, where it will write the output from CSSCSS. If the outputJson property is set to true (like in the example below) then valid JSON will be written to the file.

csscss: {
  options: {
    outputJson: true
  },
  dist: {
    'output.json': ['css/style.css']
  }
}
