Jekyll Minify Not Working

I installed Jekyll Minify and it’s not working. It does not minify HTML, CSS or JS on jekyll build.

I FTP the _site with FileZilla. Any idea why this is happening?


Are you building your site with the JEKYLL_ENV=production enabled?

If not that’s your problem. As per jekyll-minifer’s docs:

** This minifier now only runs when JEKYLL_ENV=“production” is set in the environment **

Where should I insert the tag?

You don’t insert it anywhere. It’s an environment variable.

For Mac and Unix

JEKYLL_ENV=production jekyll build

For Windows

set JEKYLL_ENV=production
jekyll build
