Replace image urls to data uri. Also warns if a data uri would be duplicated, so developer can move them under one CSS rule to save size.
This plugin requires Grunt
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-css-img-2-data-uri --save-dev
In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named
css_img_2_data_uri to the data object passed into
List of css files which needs to be processed.
If set to true, it throws an error when the same image found twice, so the grunt build would stop.
In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
