tgext.scss can be installed both from pypi or from bitbucket:
should just work for most of the users
If tgext.pluggable is available enabling tgext.minify is just a matter of appending to your config/app_cfg.py:
from tgext.pluggable import plug plug(base_config, 'tgext.minify')
Otherwise manually using tgext.minify is really simple, you edit your config/middeware.py and just after the #Wrap your base TurboGears 2 application with custom middleware here comment wrap app with MinifyMiddleware:
from tgext.minify import MinifyMiddleware make_base_app = base_config.setup_tg_wsgi_app(load_environment) def make_app(global_conf, full_stack=True, **app_conf): app = make_base_app(global_conf, full_stack=True, **app_conf) # Wrap your base TurboGears 2 application with custom middleware here app = MinifyMiddleware(app) return app
Now you just have to put your beautiful .css and .js files inside public/ and they will be served as minified.
Here is the report of a benchmark made on paster serving bootstrap.css with and without the middleware and then bootstrap.min.js already minified (without using the middleware):
$ /usr/sbin/ab -n 1000 http://localhost:8080/css/bootstrap.css Requests per second: 1135.50 [#/sec] (mean) $ /usr/sbin/ab -n 1000 http://localhost:8080/css/bootstrap.scss Requests per second: 714.99 [#/sec] (mean) $ /usr/sbin/ab -n 1000 http://localhost:8080/css/bootstrap.scss Requests per second: 806.26 [#/sec] (mean)
In these case serving the unminified css using tgext.minify is even faster than directly serving the same css file as it is served from memory (due to caching performed by tgext.minify).
