Slick CSS :balloon:

CircleCI codecov tested with jest

No more bloated CSS styles :poop: in your websites.

How it works?

  1. It intercepts the res.render method in the express framework
  2. Strips out all the stylesheets from the html document
  3. Extracts only used styles using uncss
  4. Creates a new stylesheet in the path specified(cssPath) and caches it
  5. Adds the newly created stylesheet to the html document
  6. Send the response

How to use it?

  1. Install the package
npm install express-slick-css --save
  1. Add all the stylesheets to the layout
<!-- rel='stylesheet' must be there otherwise it won't be picked up -->
<link href='/stylesheets/style.css' rel='stylesheet'>
  1. Add the middleware before all the routes
const slickify = require('express-slick-csss');
app.use('/', indexRoutes);


Options Description Mandatory Default Value
outputPath path to save the new slick stylesheets Yes N/A
cssPath path to look for stylesheets specified in link tag No outputPath
publicPath public path for serving css asset eg. href="/css/style.css" No '/'
uncssOptions Supports all the options provided by uncss No Refer uncss


    cssPath: path.join(__dirname, 'css'),
    // outputPath must exists
    // Add the outputPath to .gitignore if you want
    outputPath: path.join(__dirname, 'slick-css'),
    publicPath: '/stylesheets/',
    uncssOptions: {
      // Include global CSS frameworks here to keep it clean
      stylesheets  : ['lib/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css']
