Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

npm install grunt-cssshrink --save-dev

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


The "cssshrink" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named cssshrink to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  cssshrink: {
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.

Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example, all the css files in test are processed and moved to the folder tmp

  cssshrink: {
    options: {
      log: false
    your_target: {
      files: {
        'tmp': ['test/*.css']


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.
