esmangle NPM version Build Status Dependency Status

esmangle (esmangle) is mangler / minifier for Parser API AST.

Install

esmangle can be used in a web browser: Download

<script src="esmangle.js"></script>

Node.js application via the package manager:

npm install esmangle

If you would like to use latest esmangle in a browser, you can build build/esmangle.min.js:

npm run-script build

Usage

A simple example: the program

var ast = esprima.parse(code);
var result = esmangle.mangle(ast);  // gets mangled AST
console.log(escodegen.generate(result));  // dump AST

Or you can simply use this esmangle command in the shell.

$ esmangle file.js

Get more compressed result: (in Node.js)

var ast = esprima.parse(code);
// Get optimized AST
var optimized = esmangle.optimize(ast, null);
// gets mangled AST
var result = esmangle.mangle(optimized);
console.log(escodegen.generate(result, {
    format: {
        renumber: true,
        hexadecimal: true,
        escapeless: true,
        compact: true,
        semicolons: false,
        parentheses: false
    }
}));  // dump AST

Design

Slide is here. This resolution algorithm is based on my bytecode compiler iv / lv5 / railgun.
