node package manager


Primes the CSS assets for a connect-assets instance during server initialization.


An NPM module that forces compilation of your css connect-assets without referencing them in a view.

Problems This Helps With

  • You are using requireJS and don't want to reference all your css files in the view.
  • You have a css file that is dynamically loaded on your page but not in the view.
  • You want to use the connect-assets-cdn library


npm install connect-assets-cssprimer

  • There is a dependency on CoffeeScript. If you want a straight javascript version, you can compile it easily yourself.


assets = require 'connect-assets'
cssPrimer = require 'connect-assets-cssprimer'

# Snip ...

app.use assets()
cssPrimer.loadFiles assets

# Optionally, you can pass in a log function to see progress
# cssPrimer.loadFiles assets, console.log
