Today I am going to share one more interesting utility provided by Microsoft which is called “Microsoft Ajax Minifier”.
Microsoft Ajax Minifier is a utility which will help you in minimizing the size of your Java script and CSS.
You can download this utility from http://www.asp.net/ajaxLibrary/Download.ashx
You can use this by command prompt.
For example I want to minimize the default.css of my project then I will follow following steps
Step 1: Run ajaxmin command as shown in below fig
Step 2: if command is successful then you will get following screen
You have seen all the steps and utility now you are thinking why we have to use this and how it will work. So the answer is if your JS & CSS file size is less then it will take less time in load and your website will be faster. The working is as simple as you thought
AJAXMinifier remove all the unwanted white space, curly braces and use short hand in declaration and many more techniques for reducing the size.
I hope this will help you and me also in performance boost.
Keep enjoying Microsoft tools.
Thanks & best regards,
