An assets combine and minify tool

I had trouble with compressing javascript files using UglifyJS so I write this tool to solve my problem. It is built on top of YUI Compressor. The compression rate is not as high as UglifyJS but it generates a more stable minified javascript file.

  • node >= 0.4.x
  • java jre6
npm install

  • possible value: true | false

Example

var packer = require('node.packer'),
    path   = '~/Desktop/packer/';

packer({
  log: true,
  type: 'js',
  input: [
    path + 'dojo.js',
    path + 'jquery.js'
  ],
  output: path + 'pack.min.js',
  callback: function(err, stdout, stderr) {
    err && console.log(err);
  }
});
