Description

Asereje is a library that builds your assets on demand.

Installation

npm install asereje

Usage

First you have to configure asereje:

var asereje = require('asereje');

asereje.config({
  active: process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production'        // enable it just for production
, js_globals: ['lib/jquery', 'global', 'underscore']   // js files that will be present always
, css_globals: ['reset', 'global']                     // css files that will be present always
, js_path: __dirname + '/public/javascripts'           // javascript folder path
, css_path: __dirname + '/public/css'                  // css folder path
});

Then you can use css or js function to get the file names.

res.render('users/index', {
  css: asereje.css(['users', users/index]) // => ['reset', 'global', 'users', 'users/index']
});

// ... it builds the files and the next requests will return:

res.render('users/index', {
  css: asereje.css(['users', users/index]) // => ['dist/f330099956c144c090b06f6d4bae8770', 'dist/caa6925553b03e049eeda6f70da9dc1a']
});
html
  head
    -each file in css
      link(rel= 'stylesheet', href= '/css/' + file + '.css' )
  ...

Explanation

Asereje does 3 things:

  • Bundles your files together and build 2 files. The first is for the files that are common to all the pages, such a reset.css or jquery.js. This files will be cached once and not requested anymore. The second file is specific to each page.
  • Applies minification. Ugilify-js for javascripts and sqwish for css.
  • Renames the files with the md5 of the content. This way we can set the expires header to max.

Configure your webserver to take advantage

Built files are stored under js_path|css_path/dist. Add expires headers to all this files so the users will have them cached forever.

// nginx conf
location ~* ^/(css|javascripts)/dist/.+\.(css|js)$ {
  expires max;
}

Asereje? What does it mean??

The true meaning of life
