PurgeCSS Sprockets

Reduce CSS file size by removing unused selectors with PurgeCSS in Rails asset pipeline.

Installation

Ruby Gem

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'purgecss_sprockets'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install purgecss_sprockets

JS library

Install PurgeCSS in your Rails application if you don't have it:

$ yarn add purgecss

Run the config file generator:

$ rails g purgecss_sprockets:install

Usage

This gem is intended to be used as a post processor step in your asset pipeline:

$ bundle exec rake assets:precompile

You can temporarily disable the processor or re-configure how PurgeCSS is called in an initializer:

config/initializers/purgecss_sprockets.rb:

PurgecssSprockets.disabled = true # default: false
PurgecssSprockets.purgecss_cmd = "node node_modules/purgecss/bin/purgecss.js"

You can configure PurgeCSS with the generated purgecss.config.js.

Debug

  • In an initializer, disable the PurgecssSprockets' post-processor.
  • Run rails assets:clobber assets:precompile
  • Open a Rails console and run this:
    json = JSON.parse(`node node_modules/purgecss/bin/purgecss.js --css public/assets/[your-digested-css-file].css --config purgecss.config.js --rejected`)[0]
  • You can now check which selectors are rejected by PurgeCSS in json['rejected'].

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and the created tag, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
