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.


$ pip install python-diminuendo



HTML minification

>>> from diminuendo import htmlmin
>>> html = """<html>
        <title>Hello World!</title>
        <p>Good morning</p>
>>> minified = htmlmin(html)
>>> print minified
'<html><head><title>Hello World!</title></head><body><p>Good morning</p></body></html>'


Add a minification test

To add a minification test, simply add the html code as test_name.html and its minified version as test_name-minified.html in test/html.


Test the package:

$ python -m unittest discover

Automatic testing in various environments:

$ tox


Use bumpr to release the package:

$ bumpr -b -m
$ python sdist bdist_wheel upload
