 c2c - Log File Convertor

c2c is a command-line utility which converts the log files produced by the Caddy web server into the standard combined log format. Thus, making it easier to process with a log file analyser like GoAccess. The download contains the 64-bit versions compiled for Windows, Linux and OSX.

usage:

./c2c < caddy.log > combined.log

 shrink - HTML Minification

shrink is a command-line utility which minifies HTML by removing whitespace, comments and unnecessary closing HTML tags. Depending on the source HTML, the output file can be upwards of 35% smaller. This is the technology I use within most of my web applications to reduce the response size of my HTML, thus improving frontend performance. The download contains the 64-bit versions compiled for Windows, Linux and OSX.

usage:

./shrink < input.html > output.html
