[Pro] Sprite Master for generating css-sprites automatically

Hi,

I found and app that generates css-sprites automatically and exports css file. I hope you’ll find it useful.

Thanks for sharing. If you don’t need the game sprite export features then the web version looks like a better deal;

A similar tool that was mentioned here recently was SpriteRight (http://spriterightapp.com/) although unlike Sprite Master Web it is Lion only.
Regards,
Tim.

Sprite Master Web 1.1 just appeared on the Mac App Store. This is a huge update and has lots of new features like CSS-preview on the fly, PNG image optimizations, CSS minifying, CSS State support and more. All of them listed below:

  • Image optimization for PNG. Now, your published spritesheets are optimized.
  • Sprite Master Web now tracks file changes on the system and automatically update your sprites.
  • Special CSS State code generation depending on your sprite name. for example if your sprite name ends with hover, visited, etc. Sprite Master Web will generate appropriate CSS state code.
  • Added mouse and keyboard sprite ordering. You can use your mouse and arrow keys to order your sprites (tip: use CMD+arrow to move faster).
  • Added Drag & Drop support.
  • Added preferences to change options.
  • Added Context Menu. You can update your sprites, reveal them in finder and remove from context menu quickly.
  • Ability to minify exported CSS, 3 options (None, standart and high)
  • CSS Preview window. Now you can view your CSS and copy your CSS code.
  • Background pattern can be changed from preferences.
  • Small bug-fixes.

I am glad you posted this, as I spent a few hours trying to grasp the Sprite concept last night, starting with SpriteRight developers page , to CSS Sprites: What They Are, Why They're Cool, and How To Use Them | CSS-Tricks - CSS-Tricks, to Spriteme google projects; http://spriteme.org/

I wasn’t going to, thinking it was to complicated a question and I havn’t really delved into the forum pages yet, but after sleeping on it, I invite responses at your leisure, no pressing issues…

On my page (largely dormant and experimental) http://www.class-e-ads.com/listings.html
the sprite me plugin generates the 2 logos of ebay and craigslist all three horizintaly together. Is it just the plugin trying to help or can this spriteme generated image really be use repetitively as a sprite in that design, downloaded requested/once - if I get the notion…

I bought SpriteRight before my favorite web gurus could respond about the compatibility with Freeway, and in fact before I had a notion of what a sprite is… It has since been upgraded.

I wonder if the ‘stylesheet compatibility’ of either of these two programs are below the code writter level yet?

Thanks, have a great day!
