CSS Priming For Fun Part 2: CSSPrimer 0.1

A while back I did a small post on parsing HTML/XML files and extracting the ids and classes into a generated CSS file. I finally got around to refactoring and packaging it into a ruby gem. This can help you rapidly prototype your markup without having to write the CSS at the same time. Use the gem to generate a scaffold CSS file that you can then fill out. The generated CSS file can also be used as a template for generating multiple “themes” for your html/xml markup :-).

You can install the CSSPrimer gem  as usual with ruby gems.

–> gem install css_primer

For full documentation and examples check out the source code on github.

Next plans:

  • get a working Redcar plugin!
  • generating a CSS file from multiple html source files
