CSS Sprite Generator Source Code Released

9 years, 5 months ago

Stuart and I have just released the source code for our CSS sprite generation tool on Launchpad. It's covered by a BSD license which allows both personal and commercial use. If you've got Bazaar installed you can checkout the remote branch. Alternatively you can download a tzr.gz of the files from the same location.

There isn't any documentation at the moment and there's definately parts of the code I'd like to rework. That's coming in due course, please bear with us.

Checking out the release branch

Simply run bzr branch lp:css-sprite-generator/0.1 from the command line.

  • @ Ed, thanx for sharing. The post link to: "CSS sprite generation tool" seems to be dead. I think it should be:

    But for now I'll start digging in to the code.

  • Well at least I learned something new today. First time I've read about css sprites. Seems like a pretty clever way to optimise background image loading. One of my sites in an ecommerce site, with loads of small background images and icons, so will test it out in the weekend.
