Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

Optimize CSS Assets Webpack Plugin

A Webpack plugin to optimize \ minimize CSS assets.

:warning: For webpack v5 or above please use css-minimizer-webpack-plugin instead.

What does the plugin do?

It will search for CSS assets during the Webpack build and will optimize \ minimize the CSS (by default it uses cssnano but a custom CSS processor can be specified).

Solves extract-text-webpack-plugin CSS duplication problem:

Since extract-text-webpack-plugin only bundles (merges) text chunks, if it's used to bundle CSS, the bundle might have duplicate entries (chunks can be duplicate free but when merged, duplicate CSS can be created).

Installation:

Using npm:

$ npm install --save-dev optimize-css-assets-webpack-plugin

:warning: For webpack v3 or below please use [email protected]. The [email protected] version and above supports webpack v4.

Configuration:

The plugin can receive the following options (all of them are optional):

  • assetNameRegExp: A regular expression that indicates the names of the assets that should be optimized \ minimized. The regular expression provided is run against the filenames of the files exported by the ExtractTextPlugin instances in your configuration, not the filenames of your source CSS files. Defaults to /\.css$/g
  • cssProcessor: The CSS processor used to optimize \ minimize the CSS, defaults to cssnano. This should be a function that follows cssnano.process interface (receives a CSS and options parameters and returns a Promise).
  • cssProcessorOptions: The options passed to the cssProcessor, defaults to {}
  • cssProcessorPluginOptions: The plugin options passed to the cssProcessor, defaults to {}
  • canPrint: A boolean indicating if the plugin can print messages to the console, defaults to true

Example:

var OptimizeCssAssetsPlugin = require('optimize-css-assets-webpack-plugin');
module.exports = {
  module: {
    rules: [
      {
        test: /\.css$/,
        loader: ExtractTextPlugin.extract('style-loader', 'css-loader')
      }
    ]
  },
  plugins: [
    new ExtractTextPlugin('styles.css'),
    new OptimizeCssAssetsPlugin({
      assetNameRegExp: /\.optimize\.css$/g,
      cssProcessor: require('cssnano'),
      cssProcessorPluginOptions: {
        preset: ['default', { discardComments: { removeAll: true } }],
      },
      canPrint: true
    })
  ]
};
