Welcome to Minify!

Minify is an HTTP server for JS and CSS assets. It compresses and combines files and serves it with appropriate headers, allowing conditional GET or long-Expires.

Wordpress User?

Use a dedicated WordPress plugin for more deep integration and simpler installation. Here are a couple we're aware of:

Unfortunately we can't support the WordPress plugins here.


Place the /min/ directory as a child of your DOCUMENT_ROOT directory: i.e. you will have: /home/example/www/min

You can see verify that it is working by visiting these two URLs:

If your server supports mod_rewrite, this URL should also work:

Configuration & Usage

See the MIN.txt file and the user guide

Minify also comes with a URI Builder application that can help you write URLs for use with Minify or configure groups of files. See here for details:

The cookbook also provides some more advanced options for minification:

More docs are available.

Unit Testing

  1. Place the /min_unit_tests/ directory as a child of your DOCUMENT_ROOT directory: i.e. you will have: /home/example/www/min_unit_tests

  2. To run unit tests, access:

    (If you wish, the other test_*.php files can be run to test individual components with more verbose output.)

  3. Remove /min_unit_tests/ from your DOCUMENT_ROOT when you are done.

File Encodings

Minify should work fine with files encoded in UTF-8 or other 8-bit encodings like ISO 8859/Windows-1252. By default Minify appends ";charset=utf-8" to the Content-Type headers it sends.

Leading UTF-8 BOMs are stripped from all sources to prevent duplication in output files, and files are converted to Unix newlines.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
