Want to use CSS sprites but you are too lazy to create them in Photoshop? Edward Eliot and Stuart Colville released a CSS Sprite generator quite a while ago that does the job for you.
Now they topped this by releasing the source code of the generator on launchpad (get the tar file), in case you’d like to make the generation process a part of a release script or just want to run the generator on your localhost. The license is BSD, which means you can even use the generator commercially.
We’ve introduced Edward Eliot and Stuart Colville back in October in an interview about web performance and the generator is a great tool to cut down on HTTP requests of your site, which are the main reason for bad page performance.
