CSS-ART.COM uses a simple package.json package format that is easy to setup and maintain.

The CSS and HTML are separated into individual files and it is possible to add links to your website, social media, avatar, original source URL, codepen etc.

An example artwork package can be found on the following URL


{ "name": "aku-aku-css-art", "version": "1.0.0", "title": "Aku Aku CSS art", "description": "Crash Bandicoot: Responsive Aku Aku in CSS", "author": { "name": "João Santos", "avatar": "https://s.cdpn.io/profiles/user/16670/512.jpg?1502727078", "web": "https://jotavejv.github.io", "social": [{ "title": "Codepen", "url": "https://codepen.io/jotavejv/" }, { "title": "Twitter", "url": "https://twitter.com/_jotavejv" }, { "title": "Google+", "url": "https://plus.google.com/u/2/communities/118377057769827266257" }] }, "html": "aku-aku-css-art.html", "css": ["aku-aku-css-art.css"], "js": "", "thumbnail": "thumbnail.png", "splash": "splash.png", "keywords": ["animated", "css painting"], "original": "https://codepen.io/jotavejv/pen/VzyaeV", "codepen": "https://codepen.io/jotavejv/pen/VzyaeV" }

CSS-ART.COM was originally setup as an open source crowd sourced test environment for $async, a high performance async script and CSS loader.

Artworks often use the most advanced CSS and as a result, CSS-ART.COM helped to discover a CSS parser bug in Google Chrome: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=917522

Information about the bug discovery was posted on the forum:
