gulp-minify

gulp-minify

Minify JavaScript with uglify-es.

Note

The latest version of gulp-minify is using uglify-es to minify files, this may cause some incompatible issues with earlier language versions for now, see https://github.com/hustxiaoc/gulp-minify/issues/27.

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

Installation

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

npm install --save-dev gulp-minify

Usage

var minify = require('gulp-minify');
 
gulp.task('compress', function() {
  gulp.src('lib/*.js')
    .pipe(minify({
        ext:{
            src:'-debug.js',
            min:'.js'
        },
        exclude: ['tasks'],
        ignoreFiles: ['.combo.js', '-min.js']
    }))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('dist'))
});

Options

  • ext An object that specifies output source and minified file extensions.

    • source

      The suffix string of the filenames that output source files ends with.

    • min

      • 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.

  • ignoreFiles

    Will not minify files which matches the pattern.

  • mangle

    Pass false to skip mangling names.

  • output

    Pass an object if you wish to specify additional output options. The defaults are optimized for best compression.

  • compress

    Pass an object to specify custom compressor options. Pass false to skip compression completely.

  • preserveComments

    A convenience option for options.output.comments. Defaults to preserving no comments.

    • all

    • some

      Preserve comments that start with a bang (!) or include a Closure Compiler directive (@preserve, @license, @cc_on)
