ahws-dr-svg-sprites

Create SVG sprites with PNG fallbacks at needed sizes

Usage

Minimal:

var builder = require("ahws-dr-svg-sprites");
var options = {
	spriteElementPath: "img/logos",
	spritePath: "img/sprites/logo-sprite.svg",
	cssPath: "css/logo-sprite.css"
};
builder(options, function () {
	// sprite was built
});

would yield the following files:

  • css/logo-sprite.css
  • img/sprites/logo-sprite.svg
  • img/sprites/logo-sprite.png

Advanced:

var builder = require("ahws-dr-svg-sprites");
var options = {
	name: "tv",
	prefix: "dr-logos",
	spriteElementPath: "img/logos/tv",
	spritePath: "img/sprites",
	layout: "packed",
	cssUrl: 'img'
	cssPath: "css",
	cssSuffix: "less",
	cssUnit: "rem",
	sizes: {
		large: 24,
		small: 16
	},
	refSize: "large"
};
builder(options, function () {
	// sprite was built
});

would yield the following files:

  • css/dr-logos-tv-sprite.less
  • img/sprites/dr-logos-tv-sprite.svg
  • img/sprites/dr-logos-tv-sprite-large.png
  • img/sprites/dr-logos-tv-sprite-small.png

Options

options.name

Type: String Optional

Used when automatically building stylesheet and image filenames.

options.spriteElementPath

Type: String

The base path of the elements to be sprited.

options.spritePath

Type: String

Destination path of the generated sprite images.

If the filename part (ending in .svg) is omitted it will be built from options.prefix, options.name and "sprite".

options.previewPath

Type: String Default value: "" Optional

The path where to built a preview page.

If the filename part (ending in .html) is omitted it will be built from options.prefix, options.name and "sprite".

Default is no preview.

options.cssPath

Type: String Optional

Destination path of the generated stylesheet.

If a filename part is omitted it will get built from options.cssPrefix, options.name, "sprite" and options.cssSuffix.

If left blank only svg sprites and png fallbacks are generated.

options.prefix

Type: String Default value: "" Optional

Defines a prefix for the name of the sprite stylesheet, images and classnames.

options.cssPrefix

Type: String Default value: "" Optional

Defines a prefix for the name of the sprite stylesheet (this overrides options.prefix if set).

Only used when automatically building stylesheet filenames.

options.cssSuffix

Type: String Default value: "css" Optional

Stylesheet filetype suffix.

Only used when automatically building stylesheet filenames.

options.cssSvgPrefix

Type: String Default value: ".svg" Optional

Defines a prefix for selectors to target svg sprites.

options.cssPngPrefix

Type: String Default value: "" Optional

Defines a prefix for selectors to target png sprites.

options.cssUnit

Type: String Default value: "px" Optional

Defines the unit used for dimensions and positions in the stylesheet. Only other unit that is supported (in a meaningful way) is "rem" - which is used in combination with options.cssBaseFontSize.

options.cssBaseFontSize

Type: String Default value: 16 Optional

Used to calculate values when using options.cssUnit set to "rem".

options.cssIncludeElementSizes

Type: Boolean Default value: true Optional

If set to false width and height for the svg elements will be omitted from the stylesheet. Useful in combination with a options.layout of "alt-diagonal".

options.template

Type: String Default value: "../templates/stylesheet.hbs" Optional

Defines the path of the Handlebars template to use for generating the stylesheet.

The data object passed to the Handlebars template is a Sprite instance (see ./lib/Sprite.js).

Templates have a few internal helpers at their disposal:

  • url: Takes a path (String) and returns a CSS appropriate path.
  • unit: Adds units to a value (Number) if needed and also converts from px to rem.
  • prefix: Accepts an array of items (Sprite.sizes[].items) and a selector prefix (String). Returns a comma separated prefixed selector for all elements in a size.
  • prefixAll: Accepts an array of sizes (Sprite.sizes) and a selector prefix (String). Returns a comma separated prefixed selector for all elements for all sizes.

options.layout

Type: String Default value: "horizontal" Optional

Defines the layout of elements in the sprite. Possible values:

  • "horizontal": Elements are placed side-by-side.
  • "vertical": Elements are placed above eachother.
  • "packed": Elements are packed into smallest possible space.
  • "diagonal": Elements are distributed from top-left to bottom-right corner.
  • "alt-diagonal": Elements are distributed from bottom-left to top-right corner.

options.map

Type: Object|Function Default value: null Optional

Can be used to translate svg element basenames (filename without extension) into desired names. Handy if the basenames don't make good classnames (or contain invalid chars).

If an object is supplied it will be used as a lookup table.

If a function is supplied it will be used to transform the svg element basename.

options.unit

Type: Number Default value: 10

Defines unit size of the grid the sprite elements snap to.

options.refSize

Type: String|Number Optional

Defines the basic size of your source svg-elements. All other sizes will be calculated relating to this. It can either be a key from the sizes option (which refers to a number) or just a raw number.

Source elements and refSize

Notice how one source element is bigger than the refSize; this ok - as every element is scaled proportionally.

options.sizes

Type: Object Optional

A hash of size labels and values (Number) that define the different sizes of the needed sprites.

var options = {
	// some options
	sizes: {
		large: 39,
		small: 13
	},
	refSize: "large",
	// more options
};

sizes

1 SVG sprite is generated and 2 PNG sprites (1 per defined size).
