Alters css selector names across css files and html templates.

Project description


Command line tool for hashing selector names across CSS, HTML and JavaScript files.

Description & Implementation

The tool makes most scraping robots obsolete by dynamically hashing all selectors across the entire infrastructure of a web application. Most scraping tools achieve their objective by hooking onto certain HTML selector names in the response document. LiquidCSS offers up a way to counter act this approach by changing the selector names without breaking any of the functionality or appearance of the web application.

Install the package with: pip install liquidcss


To begin using the tool first create a WorkSpace: liquid init
Register files to the WorkSpace either individually or by specifying a txt document containing a list of paths:
liquid grab /path/to/file or liquid grab -r paths.txt Once files are registered, view their status inside the WorkSpace:liquid status -a

[ID: 0]
    name: sample001.css
    path: /example/original/sample001.css
    type: css
    hash: 603706f3aa0a9b7779fca2acd29d4b8e5a68796f846f955c6ac6e72b6f13081a
    staged: True
    deployed: False

Hash the selector names across all registered files: liquid stage -a

The selector names will be hashed only if they are present in the CSS files registered in the workspace. The files are now ready to be deployed. The deploy command will swap the files at the registered paths with the hashed files and create a backup of the original files:liquid deploy -a

Reverse the deployment of the files with hashed selectors and replace them with files stored in backup: liquid deploy -a -r

JavaScript files registered with the WorkSpace can only contain const or var key words and only the selector names as strings include the . or the #. See the examples in the example folder.

More extensive documentation and further features are in development.
