Install the UglifyJS and UglifyCSS using npm locally.

Now starts with UglifyJS first. Go to your Symfony root folder and type below command.

cd /path/to/your/symfony/project
npm install uglify-js --prefix app/Resources

It will install UglifyJS locally on your app/Resources/node_modules/.bin/uglifyjs.

From here you can execute

./app/Resources/node_modules/.bin/uglifyjs --help

To test your installation of UglifyJS is success.

Now install UglifyCSS. Go to your Symfony root folder and type below command.

cd /path/to/your/symfony/project
npm install uglifycss --prefix app/Resources

It will install UglifyCSS locally on your app/Resources/node_modules/.bin/uglifycss.

Now open config.yml and edit like below.

# app/config/config.yml
    # the path to the node executable and maybe different with your system
    node: /usr/bin/nodejs
            # the path to the uglifyjs executable
            bin: bin: %kernel.root_dir%/Resources/node_modules/.bin/uglifyjs
            bin: %kernel.root_dir%/Resources/node_modules/.bin/uglifycss
            ugly_comments: true

Until now your Symfony already installed with UglifyJS and UglifyCSS and let's use it on your Twig like below.

{% javascripts '@AppBundle/Resources/public/js/*' filter='uglifyjs2' %}
    <script src="{{ asset_url }}"></script>
{% endjavascripts %}


{% stylesheets '@AppBundle/Resources/public/js/style.css' filter="uglifycss" %}
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ asset_url }}"/>
{% endstylesheets %}

Now delete your Symfony cache and try to access the website and now your minification of JS and CSS should be success.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
