Minify XML

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-xmlmin --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


Xmlmin task

Run this task with the grunt xmlmin command.
