A generic HTML minifier for python

Project description

This is a generic HTML minifier NOT using regular expressions. This minifier is fully HTML5 compatible.

The name is coming from the Harry Potter books and is an incantation that forces objects to shrink

This project was started because of the lack of a maintained HTML minifier not using complex regexp. This project uses beautifulsoup to navigate the HTML flow.
