Today, I tagged the 0.3 release for my AssetCompress plugin. A few new features have been added, and several issues resolved. You can get the code from github
The AssetCompress shell is now able to generate all the build files that are named in your project. This is great for integration with build/deployment scripts. You use it by calling
Auto named builds
Some people have had issues with build file naming, and keeping names unique across an application. As of 0.3 if no build target is named AssetCompress, will use an
md5() of all the component files for the build name. You can create multiple automatically named build files, by using the
:hash- prefix for your build files.
Basic filters included
Thanks to some contributions, there are now built-in filters for CssMin, JsMin and YUICompressor. Using these filters will help compact your build files even more, reducing response time.
A big thanks to everyone who opened tickets and submitted ideas/patches for this plugin. I’m really happy that it has turned out as well as it has. The future roadmap includes a rebuild of how pre-processing is done, so DSL’s like LESS can be integrated, and a more improved build shell.
