    grunt-split-images

    Split CSS into a base file with layout and a separate file with all images (for lazy loading)

    Getting Started

    This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.5

    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-split-images --save-dev

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

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-split-images');

    The "split_images" task

    Overview

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

    grunt.initConfig({
      split_images: {
        options: {
          output: 'dist/styles.images.css'
        },
        files: {
         'dist/styles.css': ['dev/styles.css']
        },
      },
    });

    Options

    options.output

    Type: String Default value: ''

    File in which to put the image declarations. A string value which needs a path and filename (eg. in dist/styles.images.css).

    Usage Examples

    In this example, the default options are used to get two files which are generated to the specific folder. So if the dev/styles.css file has the content

    a.top {
      background-repeat: no-repeat;
      background-image: url("data:image/svg+xml;charset=US-ASCII,%3C%3Fx.....");
    }

    the generated result would be that there are now two files. One which has the standard styles, the second with your image:

    styles.css

    a.top {
      background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }

    styles.images.css

    a.top {
      background-image: url("data:image/svg+xml;charset=US-ASCII,%3C%3Fxml%20v.......");
    }

    Contributing

    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.
