gulp-minify-css

Minify css with clean-css.

gulp-minify-css

gulp plugin to minify CSS, using clean-css

This is just a simple gulp plugin, which means it's nothing more than a thin wrapper around clean-css. If it looks like you are having CSS related issues, please contact clean-css. Only create a new issue if it looks like you're having a problem with the plugin itself.

Use npm.

npm install --save-dev gulp-minify-css
var minifyCss = require('gulp-minify-css');

options: Object
Return: Object (stream.Transform)

Options are directly passed to the CleanCSS constructor so all the clean-css options are available.

var gulp = require('gulp');
var minifyCss = require('gulp-minify-css');
 
gulp.task('minify-css', function() {
  return gulp.src('styles/*.css')
    .pipe(minifyCss({compatibility: 'ie8'}))
    .pipe(gulp.dest('dist'));
});

Source Maps can be generated by using gulp-sourcemaps.

var gulp = require('gulp');
var minifyCss = require('gulp-minify-css');
var sourcemaps = require('gulp-sourcemaps');
 
gulp.task('minify-css', function() {
  return gulp.src('./src/*.css')
    .pipe(sourcemaps.init())
    .pipe(minifyCss())
    .pipe(sourcemaps.write())
    .pipe(gulp.dest('dist'));
});
