Auto Sprite 1.0

Hi all,

Just want to announce my auto_sprite gem which some of you may find
handy…
It makes using CSS sprites painless. As a bonus - should you remove it
some
day, it doesn’t break you app, it just reverts to tags…

Full docs are at http://fargle.org/auto_sprite

In a pinch:

  1. Include the stylesheet in your layout:

    <%= stylesheet_link_tag “auto_sprite” %>

  2. Create a directory called sprites in your images directory (e.g.
    RAILS_ROOT/public/images/sprites)

  3. Put the images you want to link to in your public/images/sprites
    directory.

  4. Use your images like you normally would:

<%= image_tag ‘sprites/logo.png’ %>
<%= image_tag ‘sprites/icon1.jpg’ %>
5. Reload you application and enjoy your now faster website.

Enjoy!
Stephen

Just curious - did anyone try this out with success/failure? Thx.

Not yet, but I’ll have to try. This looks very interesting!

I do use this in a live project - its not just a “hey wouldn’t this be
cool
moment” =)

Would love to hear feedback/suggestions if anyone has some to share…
