    Hello Telerik team,

    First I want to say that the minifier is a wonderful idea - some of my xap-files are getting astronomically big although I have optimized them to load dlls only once over different xap-files.

    My feature request:
    It would be great if you can save the settings of the minifier. Like a profile.
    For example in one Visual Studio project I want to use the *.Navigation.dll with 2 controls and in another project I need 5 controls from the same dll. So I want to create 2 minified versions of the *.Navigation.dll.
    It would be great if you can save these settings - which dlls and which controls I have chosen.

    Example:
    Profile 1:
    - Navigation.dll (2 controls)
    - GridView.dll (1 control)

    Profile 2:
    - Navigation.dll (5 controls)
    - GridView.dll (2 controls)
    - Input.dll (3 controls)


    This would help me if I want to update the dlls to a newer version of Telerik dlls (like to a new internal build).
    I only have to replace the old full dlls from which I generated the old minified dlls with the new version and load the profiles to generate the new minified dlls.

    Also comfortable could be that you can manage the dlls online in the 'Your Account'-section - if I want to switch to the latest internal build I can download the already minified dlls - according to some profiles (instead of downloading the latest internal build and then upload them to the minifier and after that download the minified dlls).


    Kind regards,
    Stefan

    I agree, good idea, but I would rather the effort be put into a local version which we can run as post build command line, that enumerates the project we are building and automatically includes only the relevant telerik assembly parts, so we get an optimal, accurate and automatic process.  It should also output library cachable dll's as this is critical for even moderate sized apps that have been split into separate XAPs.

    Regards
      Ewart.

    Hi ewart,

    I've created two public PITS items that match your feature requests:
    • Make the minification process more automatic ...
    • Make the assemblies ready for library caching

    (They will be available soon for voting).
    So please vote for them, in order to rise their priority.

    Thank You for the requests and the feedback.
