HTML compressor for django
Why compress HTML code?
When compressed HTML code, you reduce the size of data transferred from your server to your client, and your pages load faster.
For install django-compresshtml, run on terminal: ::
$ [sudo] pip install django-compresshtml
Using the midleware
All you need to do is add ``compresshtml.middleware.CompressHtmlMiddleware`` to your ``MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES`` and enable the ``COMPRESS_HTML`` setting:
MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
# other middleware classes
COMPRESS_HTML = True
This middleware should be placed before any other middleware that need to read or write the response body so that compression happens afterward.
The default value for the ``COMPRESS_HTML`` setting is ``not DEBUG``. You only need to set it to ``True`` if you want to minify your HTML code when ``DEBUG`` is enabled.
The default behaviour of the middleware is remove all comments but conditional comments from HTML. If you want to keep your comments, set the setting ``KEEP_COMMENTS_ON_COMPRESSING`` to ``True``:
KEEP_COMMENTS_ON_COMPRESSING = True
Using the decorator
django-compresshtml also provides a decorator, that you can use only on views you want to minify the response:
from compresshtml.decorators import compressed_response
