Let’s get minified - Compressing and Optimizing your Code.

Posted on July 14, 2011 by Michael Rosario  |  Comments

I love javascript and I end up using 1,2,3…8 scripts on a site.  It comes to a point that all these small file sizes add up.  Here are some tools you can use to optimize, compress, and reduce the filesizes of your javascript files.  In most cases, removing white-spaces, comments, and reducing variable names can cut your filesize in half.

Notice: Some individuals also use this to protect their code, as some compressions makes the code “unreadable” to normal humans. ha!  For coders like us, they just make it harder and some people are too lazy to convert your code back to readable formats.
