Last week I finally got around to committing the code, and since then I’ve been fleshing it out, adding more features, docs, and tests, and updating the project pages a bit. The major difference is that the server is now built from separate utility classes, each lazy-loaded as needed. Some new features:
- separate front controller makes it easy to change how HTTP requests are handled
- file caching uses the very mature Cache_Lite
- supports conditional GET and far-future Expires models of client caching
- serve content from any source, not just files
- new “minifiers” (content compressors) for CSS and HTML with unit tests
At this point to see the new Minify in action you’ll need a Subversion client, like the Windows shell extension TortoiseSVN or the Eclipse plugin Subclipse. You can checkout a read-only working copy at http://minify.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ and the README has easy setup instructions.
