CodeIgniter - minify Build Status

Simple CodeIgniter library to compress CSS and JavaScript files on the fly.

Library is based on few other scripts like http://code.google.com/p/minify/ or https://code.google.com/p/cssmin to minify CSS and it uses Google Closure compiler to compress JavaScript

Instalation

Just put Minify.php file in libraries path, and create minify.php config file on config directory.

Using the library

Configure the library:

All directories needs to be writable. Next you can set your own values for config file.

// enable/disable library (default value: 'TRUE')
$config['enabled'] = TRUE;

// output path where the compiled files will be stored (default value: 'assets')
$config['assets_dir'] = 'assets';

// optional - path where the compiled css files will be stored (default value: '' - for backward compatibility)
$config['assets_dir_css'] = ''; 

// optional - path where the compiled js files will be stored (default value: '' - for backward compatibility)
$config['assets_dir_js'] = '';     

// optional - handy when your assets are in a different domain than main website (default value: '')
$config['base_url'] = '';

// where to look for css files (default value: 'assets/css')
$config['css_dir'] = 'assets/css';

// where to look for js files (default value: 'assets/js')
$config['js_dir'] = 'assets/js';

// default file name for css (default value: 'style.css')
$config['css_file'] = 'styles.css';

// default file name for js (default value: 'scripts.js')
$config['js_file'] = 'scripts.js';

// default tag for css (default value: '<link href="%s" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />')
$config['css_tag'] = '<link href="%s" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />';

// default tag for js (default value: '<script type="text/javascript" src="%s"></script>')
$config['js_tag'] = '<script type="text/javascript" src="%s"></script>';

// use html tags on output and return as a string (default value: 'TRUE')
// if html_tags === FALSE - array with links to assets is returned
$config['html_tags'] = TRUE;

// use automatic file names (default value: 'FALSE')
$config['auto_names'] = FALSE;

// use to enable versioning your assets (default value: 'FALSE')
$config['versioning'] = FALSE;

// automatically deploy when there are any changes in files (default value: 'TRUE')
$config['deploy_on_change'] = TRUE;

// compress files or not (default value: 'TRUE')
$config['compress'] = TRUE;

// compression engine setting (default values: 'minify' and 'closurecompiler')
$config['compression_engine'] = array(
	'css' => 'minify', // minify || cssmin
	'js'  => 'closurecompiler' // closurecompiler || jsmin || jsminplus
);

// when you use closurecompiler as compression engine you can choose compression level (default value: 'SIMPLE_OPTIMIZATIONS')
// avaliable options: "WHITESPACE_ONLY", "SIMPLE_OPTIMIZATIONS" or "ADVANCED_OPTIMIZATIONS"
$config['closurecompiler']['compilation_level'] = 'SIMPLE_OPTIMIZATIONS';

Available engines

  • CSS - minify or cssmin - both of them are local, just try out which one is better for you,
  • JS - closurecompiler makes API call to external server, it's slower then regular inline engine, but it's super efficient with compression, jsmin and jsminplus are local

Run the library

In the controller:

// load the library
$this->load->library('minify');
// or load and assign custom config (will override values from config file)
$this->load->library('minify', $config);
// by default library's functionality is enabled, but in some cases you would like to return
// assets without compilation and compression - when debugging or in development environment
// in that case you can use config variable to disable it
$config['enabled'] = FALSE;
// or
$this->minify->enabled = FALSE;

In controller or view:

// set css files - you can use array or string with commas
// when using this method, you replaces previously added files
$this->minify->css(array('reset.css', 'style.css', 'tinybox.css'));
$this->minify->css('reset.css, style.css, tinybox.css');

// add css files - you can use array or string with commas
// when using this method, you're adding new files to previous ones
$this->minify->add_css(array('reset.css'))->add_css('style.css, tinybox.css');

// set js files - you can use array or string with commas
// when using this method, you replaces previously added files
$this->minify->js(array('html5.js', 'main.js'));
$this->minify->js('html5.js, main.js');

// set js files - you can use array or string with commas
// when using this method, you're adding new files to previous ones
$this->minify->add_js(array('html5.js'))->add_js('main.js');

// with methods: css(), js(), add_css() and add_js()
// you can pass group name for given files as second parameter
// default group name is "default"
$this->minify->js(array('html5.js', 'main.js'), 'extra');
$this->minify->add_css('style.css, tinybox.css', 'another');

// deploy css
// bool argument for rebuild css - false means skip rebuilding (default value: TRUE) 
echo $this->minify->deploy_css(TRUE);

//Output: '<link href="path-to-compiled-css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />'

// deploy js
// bool argument for rebuild js  - false means skip rebuilding (default value: FALSE)
echo $this->minify->deploy_js(); 

//Output: '<script type="text/javascript" src="path-to-compiled-js"></script>'.

// you can use automatic file name for particular deploy when you have $config['auto_names'] set to FALSE
// to do so, you must set file name to 'auto' during deploy
echo $this->minify->deploy_css(TRUE, 'auto');
echo $this->minify->deploy_js(TRUE, 'auto');

//Output: '<link href="path-to-compiled-css-with-auto-file-name" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />'
//Output: '<script type="text/javascript" src="path-to-compiled-js-with-auto-file-name"></script>'.

// you can deploy only particular group of files
echo $this->minify->deploy_css(TRUE, NULL, 'another');
echo $this->minify->deploy_js(TRUE, 'auto', 'extra'); 

//Output: '<link href="path-to-compiled-css-group" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />'
//Output: '<script type="text/javascript" src="path-to-compiled-js-group-with-auto-file-name"></script>'.

// you can enable versioning your your assets via config variable `$config['versioning']` or manually
$this->minify->versioning = TRUE;
echo $this->minify->deploy_js(); 

//Output: '<script type="text/javascript" src="path-to-compiled.js?v=hash-here"></script>'.
