Silky Icon Sprites and SASSy Mixins

I have been working with CompassCSS/SASS for over a year now. I recently had the need to create an image sprite (or one image that contains many icons) from the silk icon sets for use in a large web interface. I created a SASS mixin to make working with the files very easy. If you use CSS and especially if you are using Compass CSS, SASS, or HAML check out my mixins.


Take a look at the BluePrint CSS Framework

Nice, Simple, Sensible CSS Framework Nice, Simple, Sensible CSS Framework

BluePrint CSS is a nice, simple, and sensible CSS framework. It greatly reduces CSS development time by providing a solid base on which to extend. Really Cool!

Blueprint is a CSS framework, which aims to cut down on your CSS development time. It gives you a solid CSS foundation to build your project on top of, with an easy-to-use grid, sensible typography, and even a stylesheet for printing.

Today I spent around 10 minutes, and used a portion of the BluePrint CSS Framework to fix some typographical problems I was having with my Wordpress theme.
