sbt-web plugin for gzip compressing web assets.

Build Status Download

Add plugin

Add the plugin to project/plugins.sbt. For example:

addSbtPlugin("com.typesafe.sbt" % "sbt-gzip" % "1.0.2")

Your project's build file also needs to enable sbt-web plugins. For example with build.sbt:

lazy val root = ( file(".")).enablePlugins(SbtWeb)

As with all sbt-web asset pipeline plugins you must declare their order of execution e.g.:

pipelineStages := Seq(gzip)



Include and exclude filters can be provided. For example, to only create gzip files for .js files:

includeFilter in gzip := "*.js"

Or to exclude all .js files but include any other files:

excludeFilter in gzip := "*.js"

The default filter is to only include .html, .css, and .js files:

includeFilter in gzip := "*.html" || "*.css" || "*.js"
