I'd like to parse a single CSS file in the context of the page I'm viewing, so I can set background images to the url's of files that the client has uploaded. Would something like this be possible within Silverstripe?

.hero {
  background-image: url('{$HeroImage.URL}') no-repeat;

You can use customCSS requirements in your Page_Contoller init() method. See
