simple image minification for brunch


This is a super simple plug-and-play plugin that minifies your images with imagemin.

$ npm install --save-dev imagemin-brunch
$ brunch build --production
18:06:47 - info: compiled 6 files into 2 files, copied 14 in 2.3 sec
18:06:53 - info: minified 9 images to save 334 kB in 5.3 sec

Supported formats

This plugin detects images via file extensions, and supports the following:

.gif .jpg .jpeg .jpe .jif .jfif .jfi .png .svg .svgz

The actual minification process is performed by the following imagemin plugins:

The plugins have their own configuration options, but imagemin-brunch currently just uses their defaults. I may expose their configuration objects and come up with a way for you to install and use your own plugins in the future.

Make sure you're in production mode

Minifying images takes forever, so I made this plugin an optimizer. By default, this plugin will run whenever brunch is in production mode. Any of these commands should work to minify your images:

$ brunch b -p
$ brunch build -p
$ brunch b --production
$ brunch build --production

If you are using the default skeleton, npm run build should also work.
