What?

Compresses your main public javascript file, using uglifyjs and the uglifier gem when you save your source file.

Use

if you haven't already gem install uglifier
then gem install guard-uglify
in your project's directory root
guard init
guard init uglify

which will add this to your Guardfile

guard 'uglify', :input => 'app/assets/javascript/application.js', :output => "public/javascripts/application.js" do
  watch 'app/assets/javascripts/application.js'
end

The destination file will be compressed when the watched file changes. If you are using this with my guard-sprocketize gem, place the above guard block after the sprockets block in your Guardfile.

The base configuration would work for a rails 3 project with a directory structure like

|-- app
|   |-- controllers
|   |-- assets
|   |   |-- sass
|   |   `-- javascripts
|   |       `-- application.js # your source javascript file 
|   |-- helpers
|   |-- mailers
|   |-- models
|   `-- views
|       `-- layouts
|-- config
|   |-- environments
|   |-- initializers
|   `-- locales
|-- db
|-- doc
|-- lib
|   `-- tasks
...
|-- public
    `-- javascripts
        `-- application.js # file to be compressed
... etc.
