I believe CodeMaid should not alter the spacing(s) inside .min file types by default; so they can continue to serve their purpose of staying maximum minified. I didn't knew (by default) it would go on and alter them.

To avoid this in the future I tried adding an exception for *.min.css$ and *.min.js$ file types in the exception list. But that generates some error "parsing *.min.js$ - Quantifier {x,y} following nothing."

What would be the proper exception ? and for the betterment of others this behavior should be added by default.
