#17243 closed defect (fixed)

Custom build with css font-face SVG font produces error 357, impossible to resolve

Reported by: wskidmore Owned by: Rawld Gill
Priority: high Milestone: 1.8.6
Component: BuildSystem Version: 1.9.0
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


When including a svg font in CSS via font face you must include a hash with the id of the font:

@font-face {
   font-family: 'myfont';
   src: url('../fonts/myfont.eot') format('embedded-opentype'),
      url('../fonts/myfont.woff') format('woff'),
      url('../fonts/myfont.ttf')  format('truetype'),
      url('../fonts/myfont.svg#myfont') format('svg');

When doing a custom build it stores a reference to the full path of all resources in buildControlBase in a object map called resourcesByDest. The above svg font resource would be stored as:


When the optimizeCSS runs it expands the relative URL to the full path and does a lookup to the resourcesByDest, if its not a found it produces a "impossible to resolve" error 357.

The issue here is its attempting to find resourcesByDest['C:\app\content\fonts\myfont.svg#myfont'] and failing, even though the font is there.

Using dojo/util tagged for 1.9.0rc2, which after the git shuffle is as of this commit:

I have a fix for this ticket:

There is a test for the CSS optimizer (buildscripts/tests/css/flattenTest.js) but it is old and is looking for jslib/buildUtil.js which has long been deleted. So I am attaching a zip file that contains the build profile and css files I used to test the fix.

If you decide to apply my fix, can it be applied to the 1.8 branch as well as 1.9 and master? The 1.8 branch contains unreleased code that handles the query string.

I have a similar problem when I try to optimize the css, I used version 1.9.1 and 1.9.3 but the problem is still there.. Does this fix also apply to the following error?

error(357) While optimizing a CSS file, it was impossible to compute the destination location of a relative URL. CSS file: C:/css/site.css; import: C:/css/theme.css; relative URL: url(../images/icons/icon.png)

  • site.css imports theme.css which has relative path to the image (and the image path is correct)
