I'm going to share a simply Python script that will minimize your HTML file using the
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup # read the HTML file with open('src.html', 'r') as f: html = f.read() # parse the HTML using BeautifulSoup soup = BeautifulSoup(html, 'html.parser') # remove whitespace for element in soup.recursiveChildGenerator(): if hasattr(element, 'strip') and callable(element.strip): element.strip() # minimize the HTML minimized_html = str(soup).replace('\n', '').replace('\t', '') # write the minimized HTML to a file with open('dist.html', 'w') as f: f.write(minimized_html)
You should ensure to change the file name of the source HTML file on line four and the distribution HTML file on line 19.
You can run this script by saving it to a file as
minimize_html.py and then running
python minimize_html.py in your terminal.
