Minified versions of Prototype 1.7 + Scriptaculous 1.9.0
Last month the developers of Scriptaculous blessed us with a new released based on Prototype 1.7 so I thought we should see how well it minified. Nobody else seems to be providing minified versions so I thought I would make a few of my own. I used the YUI Compressor and Google’s new Closure Compiler. I tried Dean Edwards packer but the resulting code gave parse errors. Google closure compile in advanced mode didn’t work either but the simple optimization seem to be working and the result is smaller than with the YUI compressor. I’ve run a few of the functional tests in scriptaculous and they worked fine. Both tools claim to be 100% safe but be sure to test everything.
