    Minify JavaScript with terser.

    Build Status NPM version


    The latest version of gulp-minify is using terser to minify files, this may cause some incompatible issues with earlier language versions for now, see

    So gulp-minify@es5 is for the earlier language versions if your project is not ready for the ECMAScript 6 yet.


    Install package with NPM and add it to your development dependencies:

    npm install --save-dev gulp-minify


    Basic usage: the following minifies every *.js and *.mjs files to *-min.js and *-min.mjs respectively. Note that the original files are preserved.

    const minify = require('gulp-minify');
    gulp.task('compress', function() {
      gulp.src(['lib/*.js', 'lib/*.mjs'])

    Options can be added to control more finely what's happening, for example:

    const minify = require('gulp-minify');
    gulp.task('compress', function() {
            exclude: ['tasks'],
            ignoreFiles: ['.combo.js', '-min.js']

        • When string: The suffix string of the filenames that output minified files ends with.
        • When Array: The regex expressions to be replaced with input filenames. For example: [/\.(.*)-source\.js$/, '$1.js']
    • exclude

      Will not minify files in the dirs.

    • noSource Will not output the source code in the dest dirs.

      Will not minify files which matches the pattern.

    • mangle
