The NSprite Extension

Nice one Steve, looking forward to giving it a try!

I like the idea of image folder to css, however, I don’t like the sprite and icon classes as that seems like style information rather than html semantics. Personally, I would prefer including

the background-image:url(sprite.png);

in each css block.

Very cool though.


Just stumbled on this forum entry regarding the Nsprit extension.

It’s surely a better place for my suggestion (which I delete from the extension page):

[color=#222222][font=Arial, sans-serif][size=3]A suggestion: apply the same to ‘img’ tag images[/size][/font][/color][color=#222222][font=Arial, sans-serif][size=3]background images do not scale well, so I suggest that the extension would be extended to support ‘img’ tags while providing a method like ‘CHtml::image’.

CHtml::image would generate the html corresponding to displaying the image that is actually in the sprite (by writing a wrapper div and a div).
