Minification can also obfuscate your code (making it difficult for third parties to copy), although effective obfuscation isn’t guaranteed, since it’s more of a side-effect of the minification process.
Installation and Setup
$ pip install django-jsmin # OR $ easy_install django-jsmin
These commands will both install all the required dependencies.
Add the necessary settings to your
## somewhere in settings.py JSMIN_ROOT = '/path/to/my/project/' # JSMIN_INPUT contains a list of all the input files and URLs. JSMIN_INPUT = [ 'http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.js', 'media/js/jquery.*.js', # jQuery plugins 'media/js/*.src.js', # project-specific libraries ] JSMIN_OUTPUT = 'media/js/project.min.js'
More information on the available settings can be found here.
DEBUG is set to
True in your Django project when you run
compressed. This allows you to debug your code with meaningful line numbers
during development, and then use the fully-minified version in production. You
can force specific behaviour with options to the
djboss jsmin command; see the
djboss jsmin --help for more information.
django-boss, a library/tool for writing and
running Django management commands. This will be installed automatically by
setuptools when you install
Usage is relatively simple:
$ djboss --log-level DEBUG jsmin Saving http://ajax.googleapis.com/.../jquery.js to a temporary file Saved http://ajax.googleapis.com/.../jquery.js to tmpN7MAsi Reading tmpN7MAsi Reading media/js/jquery.plugin1.js Reading media/js/jquery.plugin2.js Reading media/js/app-specific.lib.js Writing to media/js/minified.min.js Cleaning temporary file tmpN7MAsi
The JS file will be output to the filename given by the
JSMIN_OUTPUT setting, in this case
