Minification

Minification (also minimisation or minimization), in computer programming languages and especially JavaScript, is the process of removing all unnecessary characters from source code without changing its functionality. These unnecessary characters usually include white space characters, new line characters, comments, and sometimes block delimiters, which are used to add readability to the code but are not required for it to execute. Source : wikipedia
The common tools used for the JS & CSS Minification are UglifyCss & Uglify-js
Both require node.js

Installing node.js
