SL Combinator saves previously combined and compressed files for later use, and is smart enough to check for an up-to-date cache file before deciding to create a new one.
What’s the big deal?
Every time you update your code, you have to manually re-combine and re-compress the source files for use on the live site, making even the most trivial update a major annoyance.
Of course, you could just decide it’s not worth the hassle, and use the development files on the live site; but then your visitors suffer because of the increased page weight.
This is a truly excellent plugin and makes my life, as a developer, so much easier.
Thanks for a great extension, it’s made a huge difference to the download speeds on a site i’m working on. (Especially the CSS - 35k to 8k - Nice!)
Stephen, thanks for this great add-on.
