RebelMouse Talk to Us

If you are not familiar with spritesheets, please read this article first http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_image_sprites.asp.


How it Works

RebelMouse provides you with tools to create spritesheet files automatically using your individual icons. The tool will create spritesheet files in both retina and non-retina formats, as well as their respective CSS markup.

To generate spritesheets for your projects use

roar-generate_sprites

The image folder is located in static/img/whitelabel/. All images should be located here.

A spritesheet is created for each group of files under each folder of the sprites folder.

Take as an example this set of folders:

static/img/whitelabel/sprites/logos/static/img/whitelabel/sprites/ui/

2 spritesheet files will be created for folders ui and logos automatically by using the roar-generate_sprites command.

Spritesheets will be located here:

static/img/whitelabel/spritesheets/logos@2x.pngstatic/img/whitelabel/spritesheets/logos.pngstatic/img/whitelabel/spritesheets/ui@2x.pngstatic/img/whitelabel/spritesheets/ui.png

Stylesheets will be located here:

static/css/roar/spritesheets/logos.cssstatic/css/roar/spritesheets/ui.css

Step by Step

Create a folder called sprites, under static/img/whitelabel/, if it's not already created.

Create a folder for each new spritesheet you need, under sprites folder.

Put all the .png files you need into created folder. Note: images should be retina size, meaning 2x of their normal size.

Run the command roar-generate_sprites.

Import the generated CSS into your project's critical.css file, if it is not there yet.


Using the Spritesheets

Beside the spritesheet .png file, a .css file is generated as well. It contains CSS classes for all images which also handle retina displays which means you don't have to worry about high quality displays. Simply add the class to the element you want the image to show in.

For example, if your image file is located:

static/img/whitelabel/sprites/ui/yourfile.png

Then the class will be:

.sprites-ui-yourfile

In 2022, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2022 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.

Speed, performance, and Core Web Vitals enhancements

Click here to read our Q2 2021 platform performance updates!

At RebelMouse, we pour our souls into making sure that our platform is always the most modern, high-performance CMS on the market.

We're proud to be at a level of scale where we can invest this way into our platform, and we will continue to invest at this rate every quarter moving forward just as we have in the past.

Google Says They’re Increasing Communication About Algorithm Updates

Google Says They’re Increasing Communication About Algorithm Updates

If you feel like you’ve been hearing about updates from Google more often, it’s not just in your head. During a recent Google Meetup in NYC, Search Liaison Danny Sullivan said that Google hasn’t been launching more updates lately, but it has made a point to communicate about its updates to users more frequently.

Even though you may know when updates are happening more than before, you still won’t know about every little change that Google makes. In a post about the topic, Sullivan said that Google’s algorithm is updated thousands of times a year. Many of these incremental updates are so small that users and site owners won’t even know they are happening. Together, these minor updates add up to enhance Google’s search experience overall.

New Report: Email Is a ‘Key Tool’ for Building Loyalty

For the first time ever, the Digital News Report authored by Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism has dedicated an entire chapter to news consumption via email. The report analyzed data from thousands of readers of online news across 46 different markets. While the insights around email are focused on news content specifically, the data is useful for any publisher looking to enhance a newsletter strategy or even launch a new campaign. The findings in this year’s report shows that email continues to rise in popularity as an effective way to reach hyper-targeted audiences.

Who Reads Email Newsletters?

While email is not the primary source of traffic for most news outlets, it is more popular in the U.S. than in other countries. This year’s Digital News Report found that 22% of users surveyed in the U.S. use newsletters or email alerts, with almost half of them saying it is their main way of accessing digital news.
