CSS Compressor to Save Your Bandwidth

Posted · Category: Code, License Free

We can use this CSS Compressor made by CSS Drive to compress the CSS to increase loading speed and save on bandwidth as well. You can choose from three levels of compression, depending on how legible you want the compressed CSS to be versus degree of compression. The “Normal” mode should work well in most cases, creating a good balance between the two. It can also strip all of your comments automatically as well. However, I suggest that you keep your original CSS file, it can make your life much easier if you need to edit your CSS file.

Condense Many Javascript Files into One and Compressed

Posted · Category: Code, License Free

ShrinkSafe is a JavaScript “compression” system. It can typically reduce the size of your scripts by a third or more, depending on your programming style.

Many other tools also shrink JavaScript files, but ShrinkSafe is different. Instead of relying on brittle regular expressions, ShrinkSafe is based on Rhino, a JavaScript interpreter. This allows ShrinkSafe to transform the source of a file with much more confidence that the resulting script will function identically to the file you uploaded.

Best of all, ShrinkSafe will never change a public variable or API. That means that you can drop the compressed version of your JavaScript into your pages without changing the code that uses it. Many of your Javascript files will be condensed into a single file and compressed.
