You can beautify and minify the script by doing the following steps.
- Open the free online Actionscript tool .
- You can either copy-paste the script, "Load from URL," or use the "Browse" option to upload it.
- Click on the "Minify" button if you want to minify and compress the un-minified script.
- Click on the "Beautify" button if to beautify and format the ugly and minified script.
- The result will be displayed in the "Result" section.
- Please copy the script and paste it into the desired location.
Minification and compression of script
The second fundamental question that comes to mind is what minification and compression of the script mean? Should we minify and compress the script, or do the script's minification and compression improve the performance?
You must understand that the human eye and computer system/browsers/search engines see the script differently.
The programmer adds the indentation, line breaks, comments, commas, and spaces to format the script correctly. However, each element you add, whether it is a line break, comment, comma, and space, it takes space in the file and makes the scripting file heavy. When computer systems/compiler/interpreter read that file, they have to read each script element. That not only takes time but also affects the performance of the script. These extra elements are considered extras in the computer systems/compiler's interpretation.
Minification and compressions are the removal of unnecessary elements from the script. These unneeded/extra elements include spaces, commas, comments, the line breaks.
It can consume less bandwidth and provide better accessibility and better page loading speed to make the file smaller.
Today, the page loading speed is one of the critical factors that shape user behavior. As per Google statistics, 50% of website visitors expect a mobile website to load within 2 seconds. 53% of users will probably leave the blog page if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load.
The Google algorithm change in mid-2020 affects some top websites' ranking and traffic because they did not meet Google's page speed requirements.
Having a better page loading speed shapes a better user experience that guarantees a better SEO ranking. Minification and script compression help you reduce the file size up to 50%.
That is why minification and the compression of the script are done.
The critical point is that minification and compression do not affect the performance of the script .
Beautification and formation of script
The first fundamental question that comes to mind, what beautification and formation of the script mean? Moreover, should we beautify and format the script?
When the programmer writes code, he/she always keeps in mind that in the future, if editing is required, it can be performed easily. Moreover, if someone else reads the script, that person can quickly read the script.
The programmer adds line breaks, comments, commas, and spaces to apply the proper formatting. Therefore, the script delivers the intent, what the programmers want to provide. The script should be readable to the eye. It should be eye-catching. Someone reading the script should understand the hierarchy of the script. Also, the script should be useful for the future point of view as well. Even though you are a professional and experienced programmer, and if you do not properly format your script and careful about indentation, you will create a mess for any person working on that program. So always format your script as per the guidelines.
How can you beautify and minify the script?
You can either manually beautify or minify the script or can use some online tools in this regard. The online tools are preferred over humans because there is always a chance of some error, and it is a time-consuming process in human's work. On the other hand, online tools can beautify and minify the script more accurately and within no time. Instantly, you can get your desired results.
Do we keep a copy of your script?
Protecting user trust is our top priority. We do not keep a copy of any script that the user uploads for the minification or beautification process.
Note: We do not keep a copy of the resulted script. Therefore, please copy the resulted script and paste it to the desired location for future use if you are happy and satisfied with the results.
