Project description

# pelican-minify

[![Build Status](](

An HTML minification plugin for
[Pelican](, the static site generator.

## Install

To install the library, you can use

$ pip install pelican-minify

## Usage

To use `pelican-minify`, you need to make only a single change to your
`` file (the configuration file that Pelican uses to generate
your static site.

Update your `PLUGINS` global, and append `minify` to the list, eg:

``` python

# ...

# ...
# ...

# ...

The next time you build your Pelican site, `pelican-minify` will automatically
minify your Pelican pages after they've been generated.

This reduces file size and obscures the public source code, but keep in
mind--minifying your static site will increase your Pelican build times, as it
adds extra file processing for each page generated.

**NOTE**: You should probably include the `minify` plugin at the very bottom of
your `PLUGINS` array. This will ensure it is the last thing to run, and
doesn't prematurely gzip any files.
