What is JS and what is it used for?
Most of its success is due to the large adoption since its early versions and the huge amount of libraries, frameworks, and modules created for it. Those can cover a very wide range of applications, as stated above.
One can, for example:
- use Express to build a REST API on Node.js
- build a face-detection app using TensorFlow.js
- build a fully-featured dashboard using React.js and Chart.js.
Such files with unnecessarily large amounts of code can have a huge - and negative, impact on your users' download experience. That's exactly where code minification comes into play!
Code minification and JS Minifier
The process consists of removing all unnecessary spaces, line breaks, characters, and other elements, and even renaming your variables and functions, in a sub-process called Uglify.
Uglify acts by reducing the number of code characters, using hard-to-read names instead, also making it harder for hackers to search for vulnerabilities throughout your code!
When generating the files for a production deployment, you should apply the Code minification process, reducing the size of your JS files and improving the loading experience for your users. It can be achieved by applying tools like Node Minify or Terser.
