About

This package compresses the HTML output from your Laravel 4 application, seamlessly reducing the overall response size of your pages.

Other scripts that I've seen will compress the HTML output on-the-fly for each request. Instead, this package extends the Blade compiler to save the compiled template files to disk in their compressed state, reducing the overhead for each request.

Why?

Even with gzip enabled, there is still an improvement in the response size for HTML content-type documents.

Installation

  1. Add
    "fitztrev/laravel-html-minify": "1.*"
    to composer.json.
  2. Run
    composer update
  3. Add
    Fitztrev\LaravelHtmlMinify\LaravelHtmlMinifyServiceProvider
    to the list of providers in app/config/app.php.
  4. Important: You won't see any changes until you edit your
    *.blade.php
    template files. Once Laravel detects a change, it will recompile them, which is when this package will go to work. To force all views to be recompiled, just run this command:
    find . -name "*.blade.php" -exec touch {} \;

Config

Optionally, you can choose to customize how the minifier functions for different environments. Publish the configuration file and edit accordingly.

$ php artisan config:publish fitztrev/laravel-html-minify

Options

  • enabled
    - boolean, default true

If you are using a javascript framework that conflicts with Blade's tags, you can change them.

  • blade.contentTags
    - array, default
    {{
    and
    }}
  • blade.escapedContentTags
    - array, default
    {{{
    and
    }}}

Skipping minification

To prevent the minification of a view file, add

skipmin
somewhere in the view.
{{-- skipmin --}}
