group :jekyll_plugins do
  gem 'octopress-minify-html'

Then install the gem with Bundler

$ bundle

Manual Installation

$ gem install octopress-minify-html

Then add the gem to your Jekyll configuration.

  - octopress-minify-html


After installing, Jekyll's HTML output will be minified by default. If you configure env in your Jekyll configuration, HTML will be minified only when env is set to production.

env: production

You can override the default behavior by setting the minify_html config. For example, this will disable minification, regardless of your env setting.

minify_html: false

HtmlPress Configuration:

You can set configuration options for HtmlPress in your Jekyll configuration like this:

  unquoted_attributes: false
  drop_empty_values: false
  strip_crlf: false
  js_minifier_options: false
