    pngquant-bin GitHub Actions Status

    pngquant is a PNG compressor that significantly reduces file sizes by converting images to a more efficient 8-bit PNG format

    You probably want imagemin-pngquant instead.

    Install

    $ npm install pngquant-bin
    

    Make sure you have the correct version of libimagequant.

    # via Homebrew for macOS
    $ brew install libimagequant
    
    # via apt-get for Debian distributions
    $ sudo apt-get install libimagequant-dev
    

    Usage

    import {execFile} from 'node:child_process';
    import pngquant from 'pngquant-bin';
    
    execFile(pngquant, ['-o', 'output.png', 'input.png'], error => {
    	console.log('Image minified!');
    });

    CLI

    $ npm install --global pngquant-bin
    
    $ pngquant --help
    

    Updating pre-compiled binaries

    The Linux binaries are statically linked so they should work on all Linux distributions. To recompile them:

    1. sudo apt-get install libpng-dev
    2. ./configure CFLAGS=-static && make && cp pngquant pngquant-64
    3. Repeat the above commands, but in a 32-bin docker container started with: docker run -ti -v pwd:/source i386/debian:9.3 bash

    Install

    npm i pngquant-bin
