Minify – makes your website faster by combing, minifying and compressing static files like HTML, CSS and JS.

Drag your files or website folder onto Minify, or Minify's dock icon and the application will quickly generate .min and .gz files for your static HTML, CSS and JS files.

Combing and deploying pre-generated .gz files for your static files is one of the most effective methods to significantly improve the speed at which your website loads.

Combining – When your website has lots of small JS and CSS files your website must make individual requests for each file. Each requests can add 200ms of time to your page load and puts increased load on your website server. While internet connections have got faster, the delay introduced by requesting lots of small files hasn't.

Minifying – Generating .min files for CSS and JS has long been a common way of reducing file size, but the space saving is nothing compared to .gz compression. Minify generates .min files for use when a web browser does not support .gz files. All modern and even older browsers support .gz files.

GZ Compression - Pre-generating compressed versions of your static HTML, CSS and JS files will significantly reduce the size of your files. Where a .min may be 80% the size of the original, a .gz may be 10% or even less. The size reduction makes the difference where your page will load with a snap and makes an even bigger difference when being loaded over wireless internet. Some web-servers will allow your website to automatically generate GZ compressed pages, however this puts increased load on the web-server and pre-generating the .gz files ensures as little load as possible.

Untouched HTML

This works great for CSS and JS, but it didn't do a thing to my HTML docs. :-\

It works

I haven’t used it a lot, but it works so far. It would be nice if your website’s “Download” button actually downloaded the app instead of sending the user to the app store. I haven’t tried it on CSS yet. The javascript file I tried it with did work. I like that the app is small and doesn’t seem to make pointless internet connections.

Super awesome and a time saver

Thank you, this is exactly what we needed. Simple. Productivity has increased over having to do this manually in BBEdit and Keka [ which are an excellent products, of course :) ] . Incredible there are no reviews yet. Found through a Google search.
