imageinliner

Build Status

npm install -g imageinliner

Tool for inlining background data-uri's into css files.

imageinliner -i style.css -o outputStyle.css

To overwrite the input file instead of outputting to a separate file, add the --overwrite flag.

imageinliner -i style.css --overwrite

When referring to images using source root (/some/images) the imageinliner need to know from where to calculate the root path. Use the --rootPath parameter.

imageinliner -i style.css -o outputStyle.css --rootPath /some/images

imageinliner will reformat the css (line breaks and indentations). To preserve compression and output all in one line, pass the --compress flag.

imageinliner -i style.css -o outputStyle.css --compress

Base64 images is somewhat larger than size of image by itself. Inlining files above 10k is not recommended. Best performance can be achieved for smaller files, where the http setup accounts for a large portion of the transfer.

Pass a limiter (in byte) using the --sizeLimit parameter to exclude images above the sizeLimit.

imageinliner -i style.css -o outputStyle.css --sizeLimit 10240

Multiple parameters can be combined

imageinliner -i style.css -o outputStyle.css --rootPath /some/images --sizeLimit 10240 --compress

The imageinliner module can also be used from node.

with file path

var inliner = require("imageinliner");
 
var cssData = inliner.file("style.css", {
    maxImageFileSize:   10240,
    rootImagePath:      "some/directory",
    compressOutput:     true
});

with css string

var inliner = require("imageinliner");
 
var cssData = inliner.css(css, {
    maxImageFileSize:   10240,
    cssBasePath:        "some/directory/css"
    rootImagePath:      "some/directory",
    compressOutput:     true
});
