A version of the source file is created that includes source code from a source file, and at least a portion of a client-side scripting language file (CSSLF) for generating at least a portion of markup language for a web page to be served to a client device using a webserver. A processor associates metadata with a preprocessed directive (PPD) and a version of the source file (VSF). The metadata can include at least the portion of the CSSLF. The webserver can then retrieve, from a database, only the metadata associated with the PPD in the VSF such that the entire source file does not need to be retrieved. When a request for the metadata associated with the VSF is received, at least the portion of the markup language for the web page can be generated in accordance with the metadata associated with the PPD and the VSF.
