Minify, a PHP5 app for client-side performance

If you need a minifier for CSS and JS assets, feel free to explore Minify.

Minify is a PHP5 app that helps you follow several rules for client-side performance. It combines multiple CSS or Javascript files, removes unnecessary whitespace and comments, and serves them with gzip encoding and optimal client-side cache headers.

Ensure the min directory lives at the project root of your file server, then you can begin concatenating and minifiying your css and js assets into one source. See below,


//If you externally link assets such as,
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/bootstrap.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="css/main.css">
<script src="js/jquery-1.8.0.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/jquery.total-storage.min.js"></script>

//Concatenate them like so,
<link rel="stylesheet" href="min/?f=css/bootstrap.min.css,css/main.css">
<script src="min/?f=js/jquery-1.8.0.min.js,js/jquery.total-storage.min.js,js"></script>

San Diego Chargers!

I know I know…my team has never won the big one. In fact I do remember getting our butts kicked at our only title shot in ’95. But I am committed to my team! I’m holding onto this ‘favorited tweet’ from our 2013-14 season for a very long time.
