# Ubuntu – Minify tool that can be executed through terminal

command linesoftware-recommendation

I am looking for a tool or a way to minify (similar to Compress my code and this question on Stack) all of the code in my .xml, .css, .html and .js files through Ubuntu's terminal. Eventually I will bash script the process, but at the moment I would like to just find something to test. Is there a tool out there that I can use to compress all these file formats through the terminal?

sudo apt-get install yui-compressor

That's it. Now you can run yui-compressor myfile.js and it'll do its magic, just not as well, or as conveniently as a properly install Node/Grunt/Uglify+YUI stack.
