Complete Syntax
minify paths... { if a cond b if_op [and|or] disable [js|css|html|json|svg|xml] minifier option value }
  • paths are space separated file paths to minify. If nothing is specified, the whole website will be minified.
  • if specifies a condition. Multiple ifs are AND-ed together by default. a and b are any string and may use request placeholders. cond is the condition, with possible values explained in rewrite (which also has an if statement).
  • if_op specifies how the ifs are evaluated; the default is and.
  • disable is used to indicate which minifiers to disable. By default, they're all activated.
  • minifier sets value for option on that minifier. When the option is true or false, its omission is trated as true. To know the options read the full documentation.
