On a slightly OT but semi-related note, another firefox extension that I’ve heard good things about but never tried is Dustme selectors which will allegedly crawl a site/page for unused rules and allow you to clean up some of the inevitable 100 billion redundant CSS rules in a typical project. Yay!

This particular extension does not work in FF3 – anyone happen to know if there is another extension that finds unused CSS? Any tool that does this would be useful.

Re: Best practices for managing CSS with Textpattern

Does anyone here use ako_cssParse? In my first tests, it seems to pass in my default CSS regardless of what I say in the name= attribute. Is it compatible with rvm_css?

Darnit, shame it doesn’t work in FF3, it’d be mighty handy.

I did find a ruby script that purportedly does the same thing but it’s a bit command-liney to run. Mind you, it won’t exactly be used every day, so perhaps this overhead is worth getting your hands mucky.

Never used it, sorry. But judging by the forum posts, it was very work in progress, and rvm_css grabs the files directly so my gut feeling is you’re out of luck :-(

Re: Best practices for managing CSS with Textpattern

Thanks, Stef. I don’t feel unlucky: I can still manage those declarations using a style element in the head form.

Re: Best practices for managing CSS with Textpattern

Jonathan – I have Dustme installed in FF3 and seems to work fine. The only problem is that it requires a sitemap file to be used for a “crawl”, but you can go through your site pages one at a time and it slowly eliminates used selectors from the list as you go. Not as efficient as a crawl but it gets the job done.
