- Paste your JS code inside the toolbox.
- Copy the minified JS code manually or use the copy icon in the top left of the toolbox.
Why Use Our Tool?
- This tool will help you save a lot of bandwidth, which means that your users won’t have to wait as long for all their resources to load. Also, it won't consume a lot of bandwidth if your bandwidth is limited.
What is Code Minification?
Code Minification is the process in which all useless or ineffective characters are removed from the code, that is to say, remove some unimportant codes or letters from the code file without any change in the function or the effectiveness of the public code by the programmer, it works in such a way that it eliminates each code file containing any unnecessary or adequate data that is not important in the code such as cutting unnecessary characters or markers, block selectors, comments, white space characters, and line separators, to make things easier.
So in general Minification is defined as the process in which the characters of the data are simplified without touching or changing the function of the total data.
When entering data or code in this tool, it first reads the entire code, understands what is meant by this code and how it works, then analyzes the text-based parts of a website and its commands to be executed, and then removes the features or characters that are not necessary to make the functions be done so, where it can be done without needing to use these characters.
After that, It rewrites the codes and arranges them in a simplified manner that is easy to deal with and understand to reduce its overall file size. It generally reduces the size of the codes and makes them lighter and more practical and contains only what is necessary for the code to work successfully.
Making this process manually is a hell of work. If you want to do the simplification manually, you must first open the required file and read it and know the codes and how they work, then do the arrangement and delete the white spaces manually one by one.
But this method is feasible only if the file size is small, that is, the number of codes is not large (Although it will take a lot of effort and time), but it is difficult or impossible if the file size is large, as it is not possible to understand all the codes at once and know the blanks and characters that are not necessary and removed.
Or you can use a JS Minifier tool like our JS Minifier, which is the most common and used, where the tool does everything from reading, analyzing, rewriting, arranging, and simplifying, all you have to do is copy the required file, paste it into the tool and click minify, and here is your file, which is simplified, small in size and with the same effectiveness, efficiency, and accuracy function.
The minification makes it easier for web browsers to parse through code when loading pages, which can result in faster load times for users. As we said earlier, this process is done regardless of the method( manually or with a Minifier tool) to simplify and reduce the file size and it reduces download or upload times as it uses bandwidth on websites, as the miniaturization increases the speed of the performance of the site, which increases its effectiveness. That is, if you want to increase the effectiveness (as effectiveness is very important, especially for sites), you must reduce the file size and simplify it through this tool.
Usually when there is a tool that deals with codes directly, caution and fear of them are great, because the codes are exposed and available to deal with, which makes it an opportunity to hack or learn the engineering of the codes or the way they are structured, but the risk of using our JS Minifier tool is also zero as it strips the file of small, unimportant characters and does not restructure the actual shape of the code.
To illustrate how the tool works, we have the following example:
return(3*x + evenSum(x-1));
After the Minification is done, the code becomes as follows:
This example is simple so it can be done manually or with a tool. As it is clear in the example that all the Minifier did was delete unnecessary characters and spaces, and the actual code remained the same functionality but with a smaller size.
