Tinyfier is a complete suite for compressing, preprocessing, and optimizing HTML/Javascript/CSS and Images.


Optimization on-the-fly (assets_loader)

With Tinyfier you can combine multiple CSS or Javascript files, add extra functionality to CSS (using LESS), remove unnecessary whitespace and comments, and serve them with gzip encoding and optimal client-side cache headers.

For compress and combine your javascript and stylesheets files, all that you need to do is replace the original URL:

By this:

You can also join multiple files into a larger one, reducing the number of HTTP request and making your application fly!,user.css,print.css

Also, if you want to pass extra variables to CSS parser, you can do it by adding it into the URL, for example:,base_color=%23ff0000,height=450


Tinyfier uses the Google Closure service to compile and minimize Javascript, and, if not available, rely on JSMinPlus for that operation.


For CSS files, Tinyfier uses the lessphp parser by leafo for add extra functionality to css files. This include variables, mixins, expressions, nested blocks, etc. You can see all the available commands in lessphp documentation. Also, the generated css code is optimized, compressed and the CSS3 vendor prefix (like -webkit or -moz) are added, using css_optimizer.

Also, Tinyfier adds even more functionality:


With Tinyfier, create a css sprite it's easy and intuitive. All that you need to do use the function sprite where the first argument is the image path (relative to the document) and the second the name of the sprite. E.g.:

.login {
    background: sprite('images/user_go.png', 'user') no-repeat;

.logout {
    background: sprite('images/user_delete.png', 'user') no-repeat;

Gradient generator

Tinyfier include tools to generate CSS3-compatible gradients with backward compatibility with old browsers (through the generation of the equivalent images).

header {
    background: gradient('vertical', @header_start_color, @header_middle_color 50%, @header_end_color, 1px, 200px);

(Remember that with lessphp you can use variables everywhere in your code!)

Image embedding

You can also embed images in the document (using the Data URI scheme) with the command inline.

#gplus {
   background: inline('images/social/gplus.png');

Image filters

Another cool function of Tinyfier is the ability for work with image filters.

#lion:hover {
   background: filter('images/lion.jpg', 'brightness', 50%);

Internally, Tinyfier uses the php function imagefilter, so you can use all the filters available for it (negate, grayscale, brightness, blur, pixelate and more).

Resize images

If you have to show your image or sprite in differents size, it's as easy as use:

#lion:hover {
   background: resize('images/lion.jpg', 50%);

The filter resize can take up to 4 arguments: image url, width (in either px or %), height, and a boolean value than enables or disables aspect ratio (true / false)


Please, look in the test file for more examples for using Tinyfier in your project. It's really easy!
