Some of the features that are included in this plugin are:
grouping blocks of code
including dependencies (libraries such as jQuery and backbone.js)
elegant editor interface courtesy of ACE
Here are some of the things that I will be adding sometime in the future as the plugin grows 🙂 :
ability to choose your minifier of choice from the minify library
This plugin uses the minify library package by Steve Clay (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ryan Grove (email@example.com).

- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in the WordPress admin dashboard.
- Navigate to the ‘Appearance’ tab in the WordPress admin dashboard sidebar.
- What does the plugin do?
- How much experience do I need to use this plugin?
- Does it do anything to the database?
Yes. This plugin allows the use of revisions and will add entries to the database in the posts table. The database is accessed using WordPress and PHP core functions and there are no direct SQL queries.
- Does the plugin access the filesystem?
Yes. This plugin will save and delete files to the filesystem. The files will be located in the uploads folder under the sub-folder “global-js” on a default WordPress installation.
- Does the plugin work in a multisite configuration?
Yes. The plugin works in a multisite environment as it creates files and folders in the site’s own portion of the uploads directory.
