Hi all. 

This is probably something stupid is missed by me, but I can't figure what.

I'm calling SmartSpites like that: 
./smartsprites.sh --css-files /home/konstantin/<long project path>/browser.css

in browser.css there are following lines:
/** sprite: mysprite; sprite-image: url('./mysprite.png'); sprite-layout: vertical */ at the top of file
...
background-image: url(../img/feature-overlay.png); /** spriteref: mysprite; */
...
background-image: url('../img/btn_download.png'); /** spriteref: mysprite; */
Image files are existing and current user can read them.
  
And here is SmartSprites output:
INFO: Reading sprite image directives from /home/konstantin/<long project path>/browser.css
INFO: Reading sprite reference directives from /home/konstantin/<long project path>/browser.css
INFO: Creating CSS style sheet: /home/konstantin/<long project path>/browser-sprite.css
INFO: Reading CSS from /home/konstantin/<long project path>/browser.css
INFO: Writing CSS to /home/konstantin/<long project path>/browser-sprite.css
STATUS: SmartSprites processing completed in 96 ms
No warnings, as you can see.

browser-sprite.css appears, but it has /** spriteref: mysprite; */ directives intact and no new png files anywhere I looked. What could be the problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Kostas,

Would you be able to share the CSS/images you're processing so that I can reproduce the problem?

Thanks,

Stanislaw

Attached is a test case with 1 css (min/browser.css), cut down to minimum, and 2 pngs. 
Even when I delete either of background-image properties, sprite still doesn't get generated.

Hi Kostas,

Thanks for the example files. If you change "spriteref" into "sprite-ref":

background-image: url(../img/feature-overlay.png); /** sprite-ref: mysprite; */

then you should see the sprites generated.
