README

Minify is a JS and CSS minifier toolkit (with support for generating templates for engines such as Smarty).

Its main features are:

  • automatically find all CSS/JS files in a given directory named xxx-blah.css where xxx is a three digit ordering / sequence number;
  • minify these files and create a single file bundle;
  • automatically generate template include files allowing production / development mode (i.e. use individual CSS/JS or bundles based on an application option);
  • versioning for those using CDNs, future expiry dates, etc to ensure clients load fresh JS/CSS bundles.

See the Example Usage section below.

Usage

Using Minify is as simple as copying the included minify-options.php.dist to minify-options.php and editing to suit you environment. Then run the script:

./minify.php

A full destription of the available options is commented within minify-options.php.dist and the script has a help option:

./minify.php --help

Installation Options

Example Usage

IXP Manager uses Minify. You can see IXP Manager's JS files here and its CSS files here.

The Minify script bundles the individual files into min.bundle-vX.css and min.bundle-vX.js files and also creates templates with logic for using the original uncompressed files or the compressed bundles in this file for CSS and this file for JS.

The configuration for generating these is here.
