Htmlcompressor

Build Status

Put your html on a diet

Htmlcompressor provides tools to minify html code. It includes

  • HtmlCompressor::Compressor class which is a raw port of google's htmlcompressor
  • HtmlCompressor::Rack a rack middleware to compress html pages on the fly

Please note that Htmlcompressor is still in alpha version and need some additional love.

Usage

Using the compressor class is straightforward:

  compressor = HtmlCompressor::Compressor.new
  compressor.compress('<html><body><div id="compress_me"></div></body></html>')

The compressor ships with basic and safe default options that may be overwritten passing the options hash to the constructor:

options = {
  :enabled => true,
  :remove_multi_spaces => true,
  :remove_comments => true,
  :remove_intertag_spaces => false,
  :remove_quotes => false,
  :compress_css => false,
  :compress_javascript => false,
  :simple_doctype => false,
  :remove_script_attributes => false,
  :remove_style_attributes => false,
  :remove_link_attributes => false,
  :remove_form_attributes => false,
  :remove_input_attributes => false,
  :remove_javascript_protocol => false,
  :remove_http_protocol => false,
  :remove_https_protocol => false,
  :preserve_line_breaks => false,
  :simple_boolean_attributes => false,
  :compress_js_templates => false
}

Using rack middleware (in rails) is as easy as:

config.middleware.use HtmlCompressor::Rack, options

And in sinatra:

use HtmlCompressor::Rack, options

The middleware uses a little more aggressive options by default:

options = {
  :enabled => true,
  :remove_multi_spaces => true,
  :remove_comments => true,
  :remove_intertag_spaces => false,
  :remove_quotes => true,
  :compress_css => false,
  :compress_javascript => false,
  :simple_doctype => false,
  :remove_script_attributes => true,
  :remove_style_attributes => true,
  :remove_link_attributes => true,
  :remove_form_attributes => false,
  :remove_input_attributes => true,
  :remove_javascript_protocol => true,
  :remove_http_protocol => false,
  :remove_https_protocol => false,
  :preserve_line_breaks => false,
  :simple_boolean_attributes => true
}

Rails 2.3 users may need to add

require 'htmlcompressor'

Javascript template compression

You can compress javascript templates that are present in the html. Setting the :compress_js_templates options to true will by default compress the content of script tags marked with type="text/x-jquery-tmpl". For compressing other types of templates, you can pass a string (or an array of strings) containing the type: :compress_js_templates => ['text/html']. Please note that activating template compression will disable the removal of quotes from attributes values, as this could lead to unexpected errors with compiled templates.

Custom preservation rules

If you need to define custom preservation rules, you can list regular expressions in the preserve_patterns option. For example, to preserve PHP blocks you might want to define:

options = {
  :preserve_patterns => [/<\?php.*?\?>/im]
}

CSS and JavaScript Compression

By default CSS/JS compression is disabled. In order to minify in page javascript and css, you need to supply a compressor in the options hash. A compressor can be :yui or :closure or any object that responds to :compress. E.g.: compressed = compressor.compress(source)

class MyCompressor

  def compress(source)
    return 'minified'
  end

end

options = {
  :compress_css => true,
  :css_compressor => MyCompressor.new,
  :compress_javascript => true,
  :javascript_compressor => MyCompressor.new
}

Please note that in order to use yui or closure compilers you need to manually add them to the Gemfile

gem 'yui-compressor'

...

options = {
  :compress_javascript => true,
  :javascript_compressor => :yui,
  :compress_css => true
  :css_compressor => :yui
}
gem 'closure-compiler'

...

options = {
  :compress_javascript => true,
  :javascript_compressor => :closure
}

Statistics

As of now the statistic framework hasn't been ported. Refer to original htmlcompressor documentation for statistics on minified pages.
