It works on data produced by <a href="">parse-js</a> to generate a “minified” version of the code. Currently it can: </p> <ul> <li> reduce variable names (usually to single letters) </li> <li> join consecutive <b>var</b> statements </li> <li> resolve simple binary expressions </li> <li> group most consecutive statements using the “sequence” operator (comma) </li> <li> remove unnecessary blocks </li> <li> convert IF expressions in various ways that result in smaller code </li> <li> remove some unreachable code </li> </ul> <p>It's faster than YUI Compressor, Google Closure <i>and</i> UglifyJS, and almost as good as (and a bit safer than) Google Closure in terms of compressed code size. </p> <p> See the <a href="">UglifyJS</a> page for more information. </p> <div id="table-of-contents"> <h2>Table of Contents</h2> <div id="text-table-of-contents"> <ul> <li><a href="#sec-1">1 Dependencies </a></li> <li><a href="#sec-2">2 API </a> <ul> <li><a href="#sec-2_1">2.1 ast-squeeze (ast &amp;key (sequences T) (dead-code T)) </a></li> <li><a href="#sec-2_2">2.2 ast-mangle (ast &amp;key toplevel) </a></li> <li><a href="#sec-2_3">2.3 ast-gen-code (ast &amp;key (beautify T) (indent-level 4) (indent-start 0) quote-keys) </a></li> <li><a href="#sec-2_4">2.4 split-code (code &amp;optional (maxlen (* 32 1024))) </a></li> </ul> </li> <li><a href="#sec-3">3 Compress one file </a></li> <li><a href="#sec-4">4 License </a></li> </ul> </div> </div> <div id="outline-container-1" class="outline-3"> <h3 id="sec-1"><span class="section-number-3">1</span> Dependencies </h3> <div class="outline-text-3" id="text-1"> <ul> <li> <a href="">parse-js</a> </li> <li> <a href="">cl-ppcre</a> </li> <li> <a href="">parse-number</a> </li> <li> <a href="">iterate</a> </li> </ul> <p>I only tested it on SBCL. </p> </div> </div> <div id="outline-container-2" class="outline-3"> <h3 id="sec-2"><span class="section-number-3">2</span> API </h3> <div class="outline-text-3" id="text-2"> <p> The following functions are exported: </p> </div> <div id="outline-container-2_1" class="outline-4"> <h4 id="sec-2_1"><span class="section-number-4">2.1</span> ast-squeeze (ast &amp;key (sequences T) (dead-code T)) </h4> <div class="outline-text-4" id="text-2_1"> <p> Applies various compression techniques.

This function is careful not to affect the semantics of the code.

By default we don't. </li> </ul> <p>Note that this function returns a somewhat incompatible AST.

If you want to compress, pass <code>:beautify NIL</code>. </li> </ul> <p>The other arguments only make sense if <code>beautify</code> is <b>true</b>: </p> <ul> <li> <code>indent-level</code>: number of spaces to use for indentation.
