sprockets-compressor - Minified Sprockets output

This is a Ruby on Rails plugin, which passes Sprockets output through YUI Javascript compressor.


As a Rails Plugin

Use this to install as a plugin in a Ruby on Rails app:

$ script/plugin install git://

As a Rails Plugin (using git submodules)

Use this if you prefer the idea of being able to easily switch between using edge or a tagged version:

$ git submodule add git:// vendor/plugins/sprockets-compressor


To enable compression, set Sprockets.compression = true. If you want to enable compression for a specific environment, say production, put this in config/environments/production.rb:

config.after_initialize do
  Sprockets.compression = true

This plugin simply overrides the save_to method of the Sprockets::Concatenation class, to pass the output through YUI Compressor. When you have enabled compression Sprockets will automatically create compressed javascript output when the save_to method is called.

secretary ={ ... })

In the above example, file.js would be a compressed javascript file.


YUI Compressor is developed by Yahoo. Sprockets is developed by Sam Stephenson.
