How To Minimize Your Javascript and CSS Files for Faster Page Loads

Over the last 11 years I’ve spent a great deal of time trying to improve client websites with an eye for minimalist interface design and code. While the minimalist design esthetic is not the choice for every client the notion of less code and faster load times always goes over well. Today, many of web applications I design and code for have a plethora of Javascript and CSS files. Fortunately, there are many options to solve this rather simple problem. Compression, obfuscation and bundling are all great options.

Below you’ll find a list of the sites I’ve visited to learn more about Javascript and CSS compression. Please let me know through email or a comment if you know of any other great compression resources, and I’ll be glad to post them. Most of the descriptions below are taken from the developers of the example. Thanks, Max.

Google Code Revamps with jQuery

This is a very nice example of how the open technologies of jQuery and Google API’s can be combined to create very powerful websites.

We have revamped Google Code, the site which is the home to developers, and open source hosting. A ton of work went into cleaning up the UI integrating and unifying content, and simplifying.
The site uses jQuery for a lot of its work, and also eats a lot of dogfood.

C# MYSQLWrapper Class and PHPWrapper-Script

The MYSQLWrapper Class is a small and simple to use solution for accessing serverside MySQL Databases at a standard webspace that supports php and mysql.
I thought it would be useful because many of you have got those cheep php/mysql supported sites and want to use data at client side.
SQL queries and non query commands proceed as follows:

  1. The client side c# programm passes the needed sql command to the serversided script using http request.
  2. The serversided script performs sql statement an returns the result, if there is any, back to the client
  3. Now the client parses returned data and creates a Resultset that behaves simliar to the sqlDataReader
