Download the PHP package matthiasmullie/minify without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package matthiasmullie/minify. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.

Informations about the package minify


Build status Code coverage Latest version Downloads total License

Removes whitespace, strips comments, combines files (incl. @import statements and small assets in CSS files), and optimizes/shortens a few common programming patterns, such as:



And it comes with a huge test suite.





Available methods, for both CSS & JS minifier, are:

__construct(/ overload paths /)

The object constructor accepts 0, 1 or multiple paths of files, or even complete CSS/JS content, that should be minified. All CSS/JS passed along, will be combined into 1 minified file.

add($path, / overload paths /)

This is roughly equivalent to the constructor.


This will minify the files' content, save the result to $path and return the resulting content. If the $path parameter is omitted, the result will not be written anywhere.

CAUTION: If you have CSS with relative paths (to imports, images, ...), you should always specify a target path! Then those relative paths will be adjusted in accordance with the new path.

gzip($path, $level)

Minifies and optionally saves to a file, just like minify(), but it also gzencode()s the minified content.

setMaxImportSize($size) (CSS only)

The CSS minifier will automatically embed referenced files (like images, fonts, ...) into the minified CSS, so they don't have to be fetched over multiple connections.

However, for really large files, it's likely better to load them separately (as it would increase the CSS load time if they were included.)

This method allows the max size of files to import into the minified CSS to be set (in kB). The default size is 5.

setImportExtensions($extensions) (CSS only)

The CSS minifier will automatically embed referenced files (like images, fonts, ...) into minified CSS, so they don't have to be fetched over multiple connections.

This methods allows the type of files to be specified, along with their data:mime type.

The default embedded file types are gif, png, jpg, jpeg, svg, apng, avif, webp, woff and woff2.
