Source map paths issues

See original GitHub issue

I have a main css file which have a bunch of @import rules and I use this command to compile my css file:

cleancss --source-map --output dist/my.css css/my.css

However, in the source map file, the paths in the “sources” list are wrong: they start with “css/” instead of “…/css/”.

I think the source map paths should take into account the path to the output file.

Yeah I can confirm this is still a problem. I put together a short example to show the problem:

The problem I see is that rebaseTo doesn’t do anything with the “source” listed in the sourceMap whereas with v3 you could set the root. If you run that script against the two versions, you’ll see that v3.4.2 doesn’t include the “css/” portion of the source. And aside from using cd, you can’t get around it with v4.1.9.

This is causing me issues with grunt-contrib-cssmin because you can’t easily cd around.

Won’t fix as clean-css is going into maintenance mode.
