The entrepreneurs have to concern about a remarkably quick performance of their services unless they want to lose their valuable customers.
Magento JS minification
- The first level removes comments, unnecessary spaces, line breaks or irrelevant punctuation while the output remains functionally identical to the original code.
- Simple code optimization level works with expressions and functions, renaming local variables and parameters to shorter names.
- The third level provides the highest compression, producing more aggressive and wide transformations: it renames global variables, function names, and properties; compiler replaces a function call site with the body of the called function; also compiler removes ‘dead code’: unreachable code and never used functions. However, you have to be confident about the compiled code and follow all the instructions to prepare it. Unless it conforms all the assumptions, being compressed, it may not run.
Magento HTML & CSS minification
You may increase your website speed by CSS minification that can make a script up to a 20% smaller. The extension’s feature significantly hastens download time by removing spaces, indentation, newlines and comments in HTML & CSS code.
