css-size

Compare the size of a CSS file after processing it to the original.

Results are shown for uncompressed as well as when compressed using gzip and brotli. For most users, one of the compressed sizes will best represent what will be served to a client in production. It also provides a better comparison between the minified and the original CSS.

CSS is expected to processed by postcss plugins but can be used with any processing code that returns a promise that resolves to an object with a css property.

Install

With npm do:

npm install css-size --save

Example

var postcss = require('postcss');
var autoprefixer = require('autoprefixer');
var nano = require('cssnano');
var css = 'h1 {\n  color: black;\n}\n';
var nanoOpts = {};
var cssSize = require("css-size");
 
function process(css, options) {
  return postcss([ autoprefixer, nano(options) ]).process(css);
}
 
 
cssSize(css, nanoOpts, process).then(function (results) {
    console.log(results);
 
/*
  { uncompressed:
     { original: '23 B',
       processed: '14 B',
       difference: '9 B',
       percent: '60.87%' },
    gzip:
     { original: '43 B',
       processed: '34 B',
       difference: '9 B',
       percent: '79.07%' },
    brotli:

       processed: '16 B',
       difference: '11 B',
       percent: '59.26%' } }
*/
 
});
 
cssSize.table(css, nanoOpts, process).then(function (table) {
    console.log(table);

API

cssSize(input, options, processor)

Pass input of CSS to receive an object with information about the original & minified sizes (uncompressed, gzipped, and brotli'd), plus difference and percentage results. The options object is passed through to the processor should you wish to compare sizes using different options than the defaults.

cssSize.numeric(input, options, processor)

Exactly like cssSize(...) except the results are returned as numbers instead of preformatted strings. In numeric mode, the percentage value is a fraction (rounded to 4 significant digits), instead of being scaled to 100%.

cssSize.table(input, options, processor)

Use the table method instead to receive the results as a formatted table.

input

Type: string, buffer

options

Type: object

processor

Type: function

The processor accepts as arguments the input and options and returns a Promise that resolves to an object with a css property containing the processed css output.

CLI
