Gem Version

A plugin for jekyll to calculate Subresource Integrity (SRI) hashes for CSS (even SCSS and SASS) and JS files during build time.

Subresource Integrity (SRI) is a security feature that enables browsers to verify that resources they fetch (for example, from a CDN) are delivered without unexpected manipulation. It works by allowing you to provide a cryptographic hash that a fetched resource must match.

from Mozilla docs


Add this section to your application's Gemfile inside the jekyll_plugins and execute bundle install

group :jekyll_plugins do
  gem 'jekyll-kw-sri'

Or install the dependency with bundle itself, you can use the option --skip-install, when bundle install will be called later

bundle add jekyll-kw-sri --group jekyll_plugins 

Then add the following to your site's _config.yml to activate the plugin, see also the Configuration section to change the default configuration.

  - jekyll-kw-sri

The Plug-In is tested with jekyll 3.8, 3.9, 4.0 and 4.1!

🔥 Usage

Usage for version >= v0.1.0

Use the Jekyll Includes kw-integrity-css.html for css, scss and sass; and the kw-integrity-js.html for js.

For static, non-rendered css files the hash values have to me calculated and stored in a file. See Action Items / Shell commands section about SRI! All the hash-files should be stored in ./_includes/integrity so they can easy used.

The markdown syntax shows the include file with one paramter "the filename".

{% include kw-integrity-css.html file='style.scss' %}

The rendered html will use the default path, the css file and the calculated hash.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/assets/css/style.css" integrity="sha384-cl6CK1yzEvoM3Sw3dL8YAm/P2VpQiD+mAFVkkb6Bh+23PP1ow2gXXGw4WnQlzO0B" crossorigin="anonymous">

The markdown syntax shows the include file with all paramters. All parameter can be omit. The default values are file = "main.scss", path = "assets/css/" and hash = "sha384".

{% include kw-integrity-css.html file='style.scss' path='my/folder/to/css/' hash='sha512' %}

Usage for version < v0.1.0

Use the custom tag sri_scss_hash {% raw %}{% sri_scss_hash style.css %}{% endraw %}.

This approach was inspired by vcsjones.dev Blog and vcsjones.dev GitHub.

The html inside the post or page markdown file, shows a usage of a scss file which will be compiled to a css. The hash of the integrity will be generated during the build time.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ '/assets/css/kargware.css' | relative_url }}" integrity="{% sri_scss_hash /assets/css/kargware.scss %}" crossorigin="anonymous">

The result of the html inside the markdown is the href and the integrity.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="/assets/css/kargware.css" integrity="sha384-cl6CK1yzEvoM3Sw3dL8YAm/P2VpQiD+mAFVkkb6Bh+23PP1ow2gXXGw4WnQlzO0B" crossorigin="anonymous">


  • 0.1.0 Add html include files to use them with {% include kw-integrity-css.html %} or {% include kw-integrity-js.html %}
  • 0.0.x Add the custom tag {% sri_scss_hash %}

⚙️ Configuration

Add kw-sri section to _config.yml configure the plugin globally. If you want to use defauls you can ommit the config-section.

  createTmpfile: false
  hash_type: 'sha384'
  write_source_mapping_url: true

Configuration values

Key Description Values (default)
createTmpfile Debug-Only, save the rendered sass or scss as css false, true
hash_type Which kind of integrity hash sha256, sha384, sha512
write_source_mapping_url Add the map-file like to the css false, true

🚀 Action Items / Shell commands

Run linting and tests

bundle exec rubocop
bundle exec rake test

Build gem package

bundle exec rake build

Publish gem package

bundle exec rake release

Calc a SRI Integrity hash of ./style.css in format sha256

openssl dgst -sha256 -binary ./style.css | openssl base64 -A

Calc different SRI integrity hash-files from css-files (same is valid for js-files) in format sha256, sha384 and sha512 inside a Makefile

	for strength in 256 384 512 ; do \
		cat ./assets/css/style.min.css | openssl dgst -sha$$strength -binary | openssl base64 -A > ./_includes/integrity/style.min.css.sha$$strength ; \
		cat ./assets/css/main.css | openssl dgst -sha$$strength -binary | openssl base64 -A > ./_includes/integrity/main.css.sha$$strength ; \
		cat ./assets/js/script.js | openssl dgst -sha$$strength -binary | openssl base64 -A > ./_includes/integrity/script.js.sha$$strength ; \

📝 Notes / Hints

Appraisal - Gemfile Generator


  1. Create a Appraisals file
  2. Generate Gemfiles
bundle exec appraisal generate

Site context is empty

Inside the render(context) function of a Liquid::Tag there is a context object. With that context you can get the site object, anyhow when you want to cretae your temporry site and context you need a workaround.

Normal way to get the site object from the render function of a custom tag

site = context.registers[:site]

Create a temporary site and context of a jekyll environment

site = Jekyll::Site.new(Jekyll::Configuration::DEFAULTS)
context = Liquid::Context.new({}, {}, { site: site })

Base class for custom tag

Use Jekyll::Tags::IncludeRelativeTag instead of Liquid::Tag as base class of the custom jekyll tag SriScssHashTag will help to read the content of the scss or sass files.

Find Scss converter

Sometimes, especially during testing, the site object is not perfectly setup. So the function find_converter_instance will throw an error.

Default implementation to find the converter.

converter = site.find_converter_instance(Jekyll::Converters::Scss)

Workaround implementation to find the converter.

converter = if defined? site.find_converter_instance

Setup Steps

bundle init
bundle add rake
bundle add simplecov
bundle add minitest
bundle add minitest-reporters
bundle add minitest-profile
bundle add rspec-mocks
bundle add rdiscount
bundle add redcarpet
bundle add shoulda
