tinypng-loader-cli

NPM

Introduction

PNG is useful because it's the only widely supported format that can store partially transparent images. When app moves to production stage, image compression is essential. However, according to my experience using such as gulp-image, imagemin-webpack, most of them relied on optipng plugin. This compression algorithm only help reduce around 5%-10%. tinypng.com uses smart lossy compression techniques to reduce the file size of PNG/JP(E)G files with around 60%-70% file size reduction.

The tinypng-loader-cli is derived from my tinypng-loader.
