gatsby-plugin-minify-classnames

Minify CSS Modules class names. This plugin is tested with official CSS plugins — gatsby-plugin-less, gatsby-plugin-sass and gatsby-plugin-stylus.

Install

$ npm install gatsby-plugin-minify-classnames

Configure

Add this plugin after Less/Sass/Stylus plugins in gatsby-config.js.

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    'gatsby-plugin-less',
    'gatsby-plugin-sass',
    'gatsby-plugin-stylus',
    {
      resolve: 'gatsby-plugin-minify-classnames'
      // options: {
      //   // The options below are the plugin defaults
      //   dictionary: 'bcdfghjklmnpqrstvwxyzBCDFGHJKLMNPQRSTVWXYZ0123456789',
      //   enable: process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production',
      //   prefix: '',
      //   sufix: ''
      // }
    }
  ]
}

dictionary

Type: string. Default: 'bcdfghjklmnpqrstvwxyzBCDFGHJKLMNPQRSTVWXYZ0123456789'.

Characters used to generate the minified class names. Class names should start with letters, so the string must have at least one letter.

enable

Type: boolean. Default: process.env.NODE_ENV === 'production'.

Set it to true to enable the plugin, false to disable. By default, it’ll be enabled on production environments.

prefix

Type: string. Default: ''.

suffix

Type: string. Default: ''.

How it works

It shortens the class name length by mapping the resourcePath and the localName to incremental strings. To avoid issues between specific class names and ad blockers, the default dictionary uses only consonants and numbers.

Example

— The files index.module.css and menu.module.css, respectively:

.container {
  display: flex;
}

.footer {
  padding: 1rem;
}
.container {
  position: fixed;
}

— Generate the following CSS with gatsby-plugin-minify-classnames:

/* index.module.css */

.b_b {
  display: flex;
}

.b_c {
  padding: 1rem;
}

/* menu.module.css */

.c_b {
  position: fixed;
}

— Without gatsby-plugin-minify-classnames:

/* index.module.css */

.index-module--container--l2fVb {
  display: flex;
}

.index-module--footer--3V8ew {
  padding: 1rem;
}

/* menu.module.css */

.menu-module--container--28fe0 {
  position: fixed;
}
