Flask-Static-Compress 1.0.2

Auto-detects your static files for minification, combination, and versioning. Like Django-Compressor for Flask.

Auto-detects your static files for minification, combination, and versioning. Like Django-Compressor for Flask.

Installation

pip install flask-static-compress

Usage

Just wrap your existing css/js with a compress block and Flask-Static-Compress handles the rest:

{% compress 'css' %}
  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/sass" href="file.sass">
{% endcompress %}

{% compress 'js' %}
  <script type="text/javascript" src="file.js"></script>
{% endcompress %}

Also, initialize the extension inside your Flask app:

from flask_static_compress import FlaskStaticCompress
app = Flask(__name__)
compress = FlaskStaticCompress(app)

All static assets inside a compress block are compressed into a single file, and your html is updated to the new path when rendering the template.

For example:

{% compress 'js' %}
  <script type="text/javascript" src="{{ STATIC_URL }}js/config.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="{{ STATIC_URL }}js/app.js"></script>
{% endcompress %}

Is turned into:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/static/sdist/a041936b125a3ec4ce9bf7a83130157d.js"></script>

The compressed a041936b125a3ec4ce9bf7a83130157d.js contains both app.js and config.js combined for faster page loading. The file name is calculated based on the contents of app.js and config.js. This means any change to your static code is automatically reloaded, or cache-busted, in browsers.

With debug mode turned on, file names and line numbers are preserved while still running the compression flow:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/static/sdist/93a97ef5491b84db5155916be8f8fd7f-config.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/static/sdist/af77fa42b92bb5a1ef85d9eb773d608e-app.js"></script>

The type attribute is used to decide which compressor to use for the asset.

Use offline compression for improved performance.

Create custom compressors to support more types of static files.

For example, to remove trailing commas with Prettier then compress with jsmin:

import errno
import subprocess
from jac.compat import file, u, utf8_encode
from jac.exceptions import InvalidCompressorError
from rjsmin import jsmin


class CustomJavaScriptCompressor(object):
    binary = 'prettier'

    @classmethod
    def compile(cls, content, mimetype='text/less', cwd=None, uri_cwd=None,
                debug=None):
        if debug:
            return content

        args = ['--no-config', '--ignore-path', '--trailing-comma', 'none']

        args.insert(0, cls.binary)

        try:
            handler = subprocess.Popen(args,
                                       stdout=subprocess.PIPE,
                                       stdin=subprocess.PIPE,
                                       stderr=subprocess.PIPE, cwd=None)
        except OSError as e:
            msg = '{0} encountered an error when executing {1}: {2}'.format(
                cls.__name__,
                cls.binary,
                u(e),
            )
            if e.errno == errno.ENOENT:
                msg += ' Make sure {0} is in your PATH.'.format(cls.binary)
            raise InvalidCompressorError(msg)

        if isinstance(content, file):
            content = content.read()
        (stdout, stderr) = handler.communicate(input=utf8_encode(content))
        stdout = u(stdout)

        if handler.returncode == 0:
            return jsmin(stdout)
        else:
            raise RuntimeError('Error compressing: %s' % stderr)
