    grunt-contrib-compress v2.0.0 Build Status

    Compress files and folders

    Getting Started

    If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

    npm install grunt-contrib-compress --save-dev

    Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-contrib-compress');

    This plugin was designed to work with Grunt >= 0.4.x. If you're still using grunt v0.3.x it's strongly recommended that you upgrade, but in case you can't please use v0.3.2.

    Compress task

    Run this task with the grunt compress command.

    Task targets, files and options may be specified according to the grunt Configuring tasks guide.

    Node Libraries Used: archiver (for zip/tar) zlib (for gzip).

    Options

    archive

    Type: String or Function
    Modes: zip tar

    This is used to define where to output the archive. Each target can only have one output file. If the type is a Function it must return a String.

    This option is only appropriate for many-files-to-one compression modes like zip and tar. For gzip for example, please use grunt's standard src/dest specifications.

    mode

    Type: String

    This is used to define which mode to use, currently supports gzip, deflate, deflateRaw, tar, tgz (tar gzip),zip and brotli.

    Automatically detected per dest:src pair, but can be overridden per target if desired.

    level

    Type: Integer
    Modes: zip gzip
    Default: 1

    Sets the level of archive compression.

    brotli

    Configure brotli compression settings:

    Type: Object
    Default:

    {
        [zlib.constants.BROTLI_PARAM_MODE]: 0,
        [zlib.constants.BROTLI_PARAM_QUALITY]: 11,
        [zlib.constants.BROTLI_PARAM_LGWIN]: 22,
        [zlib.constants.BROTLI_PARAM_LGBLOCK]: 0
    }

    Do not forget require zlib for zlib.constants, example:

    const zlib = require('zlib');
    
    mode

    Type: Integer

    • 0: generic mode
    • 1: text mode
    • 2: font mode

    Default: 0

    quality

    Controls the compression-speed vs compression-density tradeoffs. The higher the quality, the slower the compression. Range is 0 to 11.

    Type: Integer
    Default: 11

    lgwin

    Base 2 logarithm of the sliding window size. Range is 10 to 24.

    Type: Integer
    Default: 22

    lgblock

    Base 2 logarithm of the maximum input block size. Range is 16 to 24. If set to 0, the value will be set based on the quality.

    Type: Integer
    Default: 0

    pretty

    Type: Boolean
    Default: false

    Pretty print file sizes when logging.

    createEmptyArchive

    Type: Boolean
    Default: true

    This can be used when you don't want to get an empty archive as a result, if there are no files at the specified paths.

    It may be useful, if you don't clearly know if files exist and you don't need an empty archive as a result.

    File Data

    The following additional keys may be passed as part of a dest:src pair when using an Archiver-backed format. All keys can be defined as a Function that receives the file name and returns in the type specified below.

    date

    Type: Date
    Modes: zip tar tgz

    Sets the file date.

    mode

    Type: Integer
    Modes: zip tar tgz

    Sets the file permissions.

    store

    Type: Boolean
    Default: false

    If true, file contents will be archived without compression.

    comment

    Type: String
    Modes: zip

    Sets the file comment.

    gid

    Type: Integer
    Modes: tar tgz

    Sets the group of the file in the archive

    uid

    Type: Integer
    Modes: tar tgz

    Sets the user of the file in the archive

    Usage Examples

    // make a zipfile
    compress: {
      main: {
        options: {
          archive: 'archive.zip'
        },
        files: [
          {src: ['path/*'], dest: 'internal_folder/', filter: 'isFile'}, // includes files in path
          {src: ['path/**'], dest: 'internal_folder2/'}, // includes files in path and its subdirs
          {expand: true, cwd: 'path/', src: ['**'], dest: 'internal_folder3/'}, // makes all src relative to cwd
          {flatten: true, src: ['path/**'], dest: 'internal_folder4/', filter: 'isFile'} // flattens results to a single level
        ]
      }
    }
    // gzip assets 1-to-1 for production
    compress: {
      main: {
        options: {
          mode: 'gzip'
        },
        expand: true,
        cwd: 'assets/',
        src: ['**/*'],
        dest: 'public/'
      }
    }
    // compress a file to a different location than its source
    // example compresses path/the_file to /the_file inside archive.zip
    compress: {
      main: {
        options: {
          archive: 'archive.zip'
        },
        files: [{

          src: ['the_file'],
          dest: '/'
        }]
      }
    },
    // use custom extension for the output file
    compress: {
      main: {
        options: {
          mode: 'gzip'
        },
        // Each of the files in the src/ folder will be output to
        // the dist/ folder each with the extension .gz.js
        files: [{
          expand: true,
          src: ['src/*.js'],
          dest: 'dist/',

          dest: 'dist/'
        }]
      }
    }
    // brotlify assets 1-to-1 for production using default options
    compress: {
      main: {
        options: {
          mode: 'brotli'
        },
