require 'css_parser'
include CssParser

parser = CssParser::Parser.new
parser.load_uri!('http://example.com/styles/style.css')

parser = CssParser::Parser.new
parser.load_uri!('file://home/user/styles/style.css')

# load a remote file, setting the base_uri and media_types
parser.load_uri!('../style.css', {base_uri: 'http://example.com/styles/inc/', media_types: [:screen, :handheld]})

# load a local file, setting the base_dir and media_types
parser.load_file!('print.css', '~/styles/', :print)

# load a string
parser = CssParser::Parser.new
parser.load_string! 'a { color: hotpink; }'

# lookup a rule by a selector
parser.find_by_selector('#content')
#=> 'font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.2;'

# lookup a rule by a selector and media type
parser.find_by_selector('#content', [:screen, :handheld])

# iterate through selectors by media type
parser.each_selector(:screen) do |selector, declarations, specificity|
  ...
end

# add a block of CSS
css = <<-EOT
  body { margin: 0 1em; }
EOT

parser.add_block!(css)

# output all CSS rules in a single stylesheet
parser.to_s
=> #content { font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.2; }
   body { margin: 0 1em; }

# capturing byte offsets within a file
parser.load_uri!('../style.css', {base_uri: 'http://example.com/styles/inc/', capture_offsets: true)
content_rule = parser.find_rule_sets(['#content']).first
content_rule.filename
#=> 'http://example.com/styles/styles.css'
content_rule.offset
#=> 10703..10752

# capturing byte offsets within a string
