It's official. Our JSMin project has matured once more and we now introduce LESS support into the mix and a few more goodies.  We have also completely documented this project for your viewing pleasure in our wiki: http://wiki.coldbox.org/wiki/Projects:JSMin-Compressor.cfm

Version 3.0

  • Fixes for responsive design
  • Added capabilities for LESS compilation
  • Auto-detection of LESS files in minify
  • ColdFusion 9 and above only

With the plugin you will be able to not only compile LESS source to files or directly to CSS, but our minify methods also account for LESS file detection and will auto-compile them for you.  It is even a bit smart and can detect when your LESS source files are modified and re-compile them.

<head>
// JavaScript
#getMyPlugin("JSMin").minify('includes/js/myscripts.js,includes/js/jquery.js')#

// CSS
#getMyPlugin("JSMin").minify('includes/css/site.css,includes/css/boxes.css')#

// LESS Support
#getMyPlugin("JSMin").minify('includes/css/site.less,includes/css/boxes.less')#

// LESS Support With CSS
#getMyPlugin("JSMin").minify('includes/css/site.less,includes/css/boxes.less,includes/css/custom.css')#

// With Custom Location
#getMyPlugin("JSMin").minify(assets='includes/css/site.less,includes/css/boxes.less',
                             location='includes/mycache')#

Have you seen Costa tickets (http://dominicwatson.github.com/cfstatic)? It was actually inspired by a very simple ColdBox plugin for asset management. It does dependency management,concatenation, minification, cache busting, LESS, CoffeeScript, etc. In ColdBox,I create a simple plugin that wraps it and sprinkle some convention in - makes for very little effort for compiled files with the html to include them rendered in the correct order and with any necessary dependencies (including external ones like jQuery). I'll definitely check this out for some inspiration though. Big fan of all the ColdBox stuff.

Unfortunately, we often hear this message from clients who thought it would never happen to them... until it did. Some believed they could delay the expense of Implementing ColdFusion security best practices for one year, while others were tempted to put it off for just a few months. However, in today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the security of web applications, including ColdFusio...
