What a great product. You are really getting a lot for $20 when you buys this. What a great app. This is truly a must have.

I got this at a discounted rate early on -- after the developer kindly responded in a day to my request for a 32-bit version -- and it's been the software bargain of the year. It just keeps getting better and doing more. Thanks to a terrific developer!

Just what i was looking for and needed, saves me the time to download and install YUI Compressor and fiddle with a non UI interface. Well worth the $20

1.1.5 adds an important feature - Concatenate!

It's now possible to combine several CSS or JS files into one via the right-click menu.

The screenshot on macupdate is still 1.1.4, visit official site:

Would be nice if you could directly drop files and folders from a server to the app. Now I have to download them first to make them smaller. Using Transmit.

Due to the exchange rate between USD and CNY becomes lower and lower, and the prices of commodities in my country continuously rising. I have changed Smaller's price to $20 from today.

Minify? really?

What is wrong with the tried and true "minimize?"

minify should be flushed down the toilet with such words as "agendify," "lunchify," and "facebookify."

Haha, you're so humorous. :)

But wait, what do you mean? Could you translate it into an easy to understand English for none-native English speakers?

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, I was being a twit. Later research turned up the frequent use of this word in programming.

You see, it seems that one can hardly go to a professional gathering without hearing new, awkward, clumsy, and unusual neologisms that seem to take the place of perfectly useful and well-known (to the general populace) words.

In this case I would have instinctively used the word "minimize" to refer to the reduction in size.

Carry on, you're doing a nice job. don't mind the old Fuddy Duddy here. :-)

I would like to know how this app differs from 'PHP & Web Toolkit' -plugin for Coda? http://www.chipwreck.de/blog/software/coda-php/

Hi Jussi,

The plugin for Coda:
1. Lack of batch processing ability. You have to minify the files one by one manually, which is a waste of time.
2. Lack of advanced settings of the JS compression. You can't control the suffix, can't contorl the linebreak, can't control the obfuscate local symbols, can't contorl the semicolons, can't control the built-in micro optimizations.

Smaller:
1. Batch minify CSS and JS files. Simply drop files or folders that containing CSS and JavaScript files. Smaller can recursively find out all the CSS and JS files under that folder (including its sub folders) and add them to the minify queue.
2. Advanced settings. A professional web developer definitely need the advanced settings. In Smaller you can not only customize your own suffix but can also contorl the linebreak, obfuscate, semicolons, micro optimizations and more.

Learn more form http://smallerapp.com , don't forget to check the built-in document via the menu "Help" - "Smaller Help", you can find lots of interesting stuff too.

Hope this helps. :)
