CSS Minification from YUICompressor

CSSMin

This project is a fork of jbleuzen/node-cssmin.

It was originally based on the javascript for of the css minification tool used inside of YUICompressor based on code from Stoyan Stefanov and Isaac Schlueter.

We forked this project in order to maintain and up keep it on a regular basis.

You can either download the plugin and unzip it into to your project folder or you can use npm to install the ycssmin package.

npm -g i ycssmin

The module exports the cssmin function, so you can use it with:

var cssmin = require('ycssmin').cssmin;

The function cssmin takes two arguments:

  • input : the CSS content you want to minimize.
  • linebreakpos : the number of characters before the end of the line. If empty, the output will have only one line.

Example :

var fs = require('fs'),
    cssmin = require('ycssmin').cssmin,
    css = fs.readFileSync("/Any/Random/CSS/File.css", encoding='utf8'),
    min = cssmin(css);
 
console.log(min);
