Combinator Orchard module
- Combines and minifies css files
- If local and remote resources are mixed (like a local js files with one from a CDN) preserves their original order
- Preserves conditional resources and minifies (if multiple with the same condition are after each other, also combines) them
- Can combine remote (CDN) resources
- Can embed images into stylesheets as data urls
- Experimental image sprite generation support
- Resource sets can be defined for better client-side caching: you can create sets of resources that are combined separately (e.g. all jQuery scripts can be in their individual file)
- Ability to share processed resources between tenants in a multi-tenant application so a set of resources is only processed once, not for every tenant (resource sharing)
- Busts browser cache when resources are updated (with a query string parameter containing a time stamp)
- Ability to set custom resource domain
- Exposing resource processing events
- LESS and SASS preprocessors, contribution of Onestop Internet, Inc.
- Command line command for emptying cache ("combinator empty")
- Info comment in bundled resources about which resources were combined
- Tuned to be fast
- With custom IStorageProvider can work in cloud hosting too (if there is no write access to the Media folder anyway)
- Import/export settings
