Lately with the introduction of a new compressor, the YUI compressor by Julien Lecomte, I’ve been inspired to write a tool to produce comprehensive compression statistics for a variety of popular compressors and also include a nice bar graph so you can easily see the compression levels visually.
If you’d like to take a sneak peak at the CompressorRater, it’s up here:
It currently has Packer compression disabled (unfortunately it runs too slowly for the time being– I believe it’s because regular expressions aren’t very efficient in Rhino.) I also tried running Packer right within the browser, and it’s just as slow.
I hope you enjoy using this tool, and I’d appreciate any feedback for improving it!
