A minify-wrapper for CSS & JavaScript resources

Project description

Detailed Documentation

Supported options

The recipe supports the following options:

The script to be used for css minification. The YUI compressor is a good choice here. This option is not required. If it is omitted, a very simple whitespace stripping is done [‘ ‘.join(RESOURCE.split())]. The command must write its result to the standard output.
Same as css-command but used for JavaScript resources.
A list of fnmatch-patters. If a filename matches one of these expressions, it is omitted from the minifying process.
A list of paths, which contains JavaScript and CSS resources. All files ending with ‘.js’ and ‘.css’ are considered, except those which are ignored explicitly (see ignore option).
Filename suffix that is used for the copy of the original file. The default is -full. If the orignal filename is style.css the minified version will be style.css and the original development version will be style-full.css.
Include all packages listed in the devel-section of the buildout. This option is turned OFF per default.
Set verbosity for minify runs. The allowed values are true and false and the default is false.

Example usage

A simple buildout that uses the recipe looks like this:

>>> write('buildout.cfg',
... """
... [buildout]
... parts = minify
... [minify]
... recipe = collective.recipe.minify
... paths =
...    ${buildout:directory}/src/foo
... ignore =
...      firm*
... include-devel = false
... """)

Running the buildout gives us:

>>> print system(buildout)
Installing minify.
Generated script '/sample-buildout/bin/minify'.

Running this script minifies all JavaScript and CSS resources found in the specfied locations. It walks all the paths specified ignoring all files matching one of the patterns specified in ignore.
