A while ago, a colleague introduced me to YUI Compressor. I was really amazed. I knew there were such kind of tools/applications out there, but never really bothered to find our which ones and how they work. So, I though, being a Mac user, that this should work on my mac as well… well… yes and no. Its not so easy getting it up and running, and I want to be able to run an ANT target in my PHP project to get this working.
So, I had some digging around to do, and ended up with my own little guide on how to get it working.
I know, its the longest title of a post.. ever. But… This is something I deal with everytime I reinstall one of my macs, and for the sake of saving some time I thought of writing it down here.
I expect you have OS X 10.8 installed (or higher), but this should also work with OS X 10.7.
Before you can use MacPorts you need to install XCode and “Command Line Tools”. You can do this by opening XCode, opening the Xcode menu and choosing “Preferences…” (pic 1). In the new window that opens, choose “Downloads” (pic 2) and select “install” next to “Command Line Tools”.
In 2007 I became a switcher and life got easier for me… everything got easier, except installing PHP and Apache. So, mainly for myself–I thought to write this small “handy”? tutorial on how to install this quickly. The reason behind is also because I recently re-installed my Mac and am at this point again. This lets me just copy-and-paste for me in the future
