· Web Dev Zone

Start coding today to experience the powerful engine that drives data application’s development, brought to you in partnership with Qlik.

csCSSc is a client-side CSS (de) compressor  which can compress CSS-code to save bandwidth by removing unnecessary white-space characters from CSS code and also decompress/pretty print CSS-code for readability and maintainability of the CSS-code.  The typed or pasted CSS-code should be valid CSS Level 1 and/or 2 code.


Currently the script performs the following actions on valid CSS-code:
  • Optionally, remove all comments:  All CSS comment-instructions can be removed, eg. everything between `/*' and `*/'.
  • Remove unnecessary white-space: All unnecessary white-space characters are removed. Additionaly, one may choose to remove all newline characters as well, resulting in a single-line file.
  • Remove unnecessary value-types: When a value of a property equals `0' (zero), the compressor will remove type-declarations from the value, like `px' and `em'.

Requirements: None
