HTML compressor for django

Project description


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:

# other middleware classes


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.

Keeping comments

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``:


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

def home(request):
return render_to_response('home.html')
