Dependencies

Resmin depends on the following libraries:

Supported

Resmin has integrated support for the the following libraries:

Basic usage

Resmin is built to be dead simple to use and implement.

Example configuration:

var resminConfig = {
    gzip: true,
    merge: true,
    minify: true,
    js: {
        "all": [
            "//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js",
            "//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.14/jquery-ui.min.js",
            "/js/foo.js",
            "/js/bar.js",
            "/js/baz.js"
        ]
    },
    css: {
        "all": [
            "//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Inconsolata:regular&v1",
            "/css/foo.css",
            "/css/bar.css",
            "/css/baz.css"
        ]
    }
};

Instantiate resmin and add the middleware and dynamic helper to connect/express.

var resmin = require('resmin');
app.use(resmin.middleware(express, __dirname+'/public/', resminConfig));
app.dynamicHelpers(resmin.dynamicHelper);

The resmin variable is now accessible through your template engine of choice.

Example when using jade/haml:

- each url in resmin.css.all
  link(rel='stylesheet', href=url)
- each url in resmin.js.all
  script(src=url)

Example when using ejs:

<% for (url in resmin.css.all) { %>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<%= resmin.css.all[url] %>">
<% } %>
<% for (url in resmin.js.all) { %>
    <script src="<%= resmin.js.all[url] %>"></script>
<% } %>

Example when using less:

Just add your .less files either to the css group. They will be
automatically parsed, compiled, merged and compressed according to your settings.

var resminConfig = {
    ...
    css: {
        "/css/foo.less",
        "/css/bar.less",
        "/css/baz.less"
    }
}

Example when using stylus:

Just add your .less files either to the css group. They will be automatically parsed, compiled, merged and compressed according to your settings.

var resminConfig = {
    ...
    css: {
        "/css/foo.styl",
        "/css/bar.styl",
        "/css/baz.styl"
    },
    stylus: function(style) {
        // Add your own stylus settings
        return style;
    }
}
