"minify_save" not calculating savings? - nathanziarek - 12-31-2015 05:03 AM

Good afternoon!

I'm using the JSON results through the REST API. I'm looking document-by-document through the results and noticing that JavaScript files I *know* aren't minified are coming back as "minify_save: 0".

I found this thread: http://www.webpagetest.org/forums/showthread.php?tid=12963&highlight=minify where it's stated that maybe the minification checks were removed.

I guess I'm checking to see if that is indeed the case or if I'm doing something incorrectly. If it was purposefully removed, I'd like to make a PASSIONATE plea to return it.

My use-case for this is to run post-release tests on our pages. We're going to start working on some page speed fixes, and I want to see if the results are changing over time, and if we end up re-introducing issues (one that just cropped up: cache-control header was being mangled on our new CDN).

Minification may not be a huge byte saver, but every little bit helps.

Thank you!
