What would you like to do?
Creates 1x and 2x background images. The 200% means that the pixel offsets will work on both the small and large images. Make sure your sprites line up exactly, so that the 2x images are exactly twice as big, twice as low, and twice as left.
//Support 1 and 2x image sizes
@mixin 2xBackground($url)
background-image: url($url + ".png")
@media only screen and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 1.3), only screen and (min-device-pixel-ratio: 1.3)
background-image: url($url + "@2x.png")
background-size: 200%

This only works if the bg image happens to be twice as large as the containing element, as is usually the case with sprite sheets that have a normal and hover state. The % is relative to the container, not the image size. Makes this less reusable/flexible than I thought.
