Static Site Squisher Version 0.2

I’ve been using Static Site Squisher on this site, and as I’ve written more blog posts and further optimized my templates, I’ve run across a few bugs in the minification process that needed to be fixed in order to make the process easily sustainable. The 0.2 release implements these fixes and adds a new feature to minify any stylesheets or JavaScript found inside the HTML files. The full changelog can be found below.



  • No longer ruins formatting of text inside pre tag.

  • Much smarter renaming of HTML references to CSS and JavaScript files to their minified versions, preventing issues where content was being inadvertantly modified

  • No longer attempts to minify .min.css and .min.js files


  • Now minifies inline CSS and JavaScript
