Grunt plugin for Twitter's css-flip

This package is no longer maintained!

If you are interested in taking ownership of it, please contact @cvrebert or another member of the @twbs team.

Getting Started

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-css-flip --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


Alternatively, you could instead use load-grunt-tasks to load this and other Grunt tasks.

The "cssflip" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named cssflip to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  cssflip: {
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here.
      options: {
      files: ...


All options are passed directly to css-flip's flip() function. None of the options are required.


  • Type: Boolean
  • Default: false

Whether to slightly compress output. Some newlines and indentation are removed. Comments stay intact.


  • Type: String
  • Default: ' ' (two spaces)

String value to use for 1 level of indentation in the output.

Usage Examples

Default Options

In this example, two CSS files are flipped using css-flip's default settings.

  cssflip: {
    my_target: {
      options: {},
      files: {
        'flipped-one.css': 'original-one.css',
        'flipped-two.css': 'original-two.css'

Custom Options

In this example, the resulting flipped CSS files will also be slightly compressed using css-flip's compress option.

  cssflip: {
    my_target: {
      options: {
        compress: true
      files: {
        'flipped-one.min.css': 'original-one.css',
        'flipped-two.min.css': 'original-two.css'


The project's coding style is laid out in the ESLint configuration. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
