Minified code

Minified code

Minified code refers to the process of removing unnecessary characters and whitespace from a source code file without affecting its functionality. This process is commonly applied to various types of code, such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, to optimize website performance. By compressing file sizes and reducing bytes being downloaded, minified code helps improve page loading times and enhances the overall user experience. 

Minification typically involves removing comments, extra spaces, line breaks, and other non-essential elements from the source code. It may also include shortening variable names and consolidating similar code blocks. The result is a more compact and efficient code that retains its original functionality while using fewer resources.

Webflow allows you to minify your HTML, CSS, or JavaScript files separately. Minifying your code can help your website load faster, delivering an improved user experience. Learn how to minify your site's code in Webflow University.
