# In your jifty config.yml under the framework section:

This plugin provides auto-compilation and on-wire compression of your application's CSS and Javascript. It is enabled by default, unless your "ConfigFileVersion" is greater or equal than 2.

It also supports js minifier, you will need to specify the full path. The jsmin can be obtained from <http://www.crockford.com/javascript/jsmin.html>.

Note that you will need to use "ConfigFileVersion" 2 to be able to configure jsmin feature.

skipped_js is a list of js that you don't want to compress for some reason.

generate_early tells the plugin to compress the CSS and JS at process start rather than on the first request. This can save time, especially if your JS minifier is slow, for the poor sucker who makes the first request. Enabled by default.


Initializes the compression object. Takes a paramhash containing keys 'css' and 'js' which can be used to disable compression on files of that type.


Returns whether JS compression is enabled (which it is by default)


Returns whether CSS compression is enabled (which it is by default)


Checks if the compressed CSS is generated, and if it isn't, generates and caches it. (In devel mode, it always regenerates it)


Checks if the compressed JS is generated, and if it isn't, generates and caches it.


Generates compressed javascript, ignoring the cache completely.
