WebPutty is a feature-rich and powerful CSS editor which gives you a syntax-highlighting CSS editor you can use from anywhere, the power of SCSS and Compass, a side-by-side preview pane, and instant publishing with minification, compression, and automatic cache control.
With WebPutty, you get an in-browser, feature-rich, syntax-highlighting CSS editor. You can see your changes instantly with the side-by-side preview pane, so there’s no need for the traditional back-and-forth between your editor and refreshing a browser to see your changes. The editor is your browser and the preview’s built-in!
Best of all, the editor and the preview pane work together, so that when you click on a CSS selector, all the elements matching that selector are instantly highlighted in the preview pane.
If you are optimizing a website for speed, one of the major changes that I would recommend is combining images into sprites. Not all of them, of course. I usually convert small images that are called very frequently such as images used in navigation menus, images and header, footer or side bar (social media icons, for instance), dividers, link buttons etc. This saves precious HTML requests backs to the server.
There are a number of sprite generators like Sprite Cow. Today’s feature sprite generator is Spritemapper. This simple but effective tool merges multiple images into one and generates CSS positioning for the corresponding slices.
Spritemapper ensures that the images are packed tightly – the result is crisp and light image sprite. The tool, itself, is a simple command-line program powered by a Python library including its own PNG and CSS parser.
