15 May 2007 - 11:53Danny proposes a possible £5 App discussion

Danny (of HoboInternet) has just posted about a idea he’s proposing for the intriguingly-named stripme.org [no site yet] service.

The idea is simple – a RESTful site which can strip comments out of CSS, so you don’t have to serve comment-heavy CSS in day-to-day operations but you can preserve comments for development.

Perhaps the idea can be extended to auto-compress CSS and JavaScript files in a service which takes care of caching? At ShowMeDo we still use raw CSS and JavaScript (it gets piped as gzip-compressed, but the original files are heavy on spaces and formatting) because it is a faff to remember to strip/compress the files for release.

Would a handy service which does this easily (free for low volume, low-cost if you go over a sensible limit?) make for a nice app?

Danny – this sounds like an ideal talking point for the next £5 App!
