Image Compress Plugin

With the image compression plugin, image resources used in the project can be compressed to reduce the size of the artifacts without affecting the visual appearance of the image.

Quick Start


You can install the plugin with the following command:

npm add @modern-js/builder-plugin-image-compress -D


In upper-level frameworks such as Modern.js, you can register image compress plugin through the builderPlugins config:

import { builderPluginImageCompress } from '@modern-js/builder-plugin-image-compress';

export default {
  builderPlugins: [builderPluginImageCompress()],

If you are using the Builder's Node API, you can register image compress plugin through the addPlugins method:

import { builderPluginImageCompress } from '@modern-js/builder-plugin-image-compress';

// add the plugin to the builder instance


The plugin accepts an array of compressor configuration options, each of which can be either a string or an object. The string can be the name of a built-in compressor and its default configuration enabled. Or use the object format configuration and specify the compressor in the use field. The remaining fields of the object will be used as compressor configuration options.

By default, the plugin will enable jpeg, png, ico image compressors, which are equivalent to the following two examples:

builderPluginImageCompress(['jpeg', 'png', 'ico']);
builderPluginImageCompress([{ use: 'jpeg' }, { use: 'png' }, { use: 'ico' }]);

The default configuration can be overridden by specifying a configuration option. For example, to allow the jpeg compressor to recognize new extension name and to set the quality of the png compressor.

  { use: 'jpeg', test: /\.(jpg|jpeg|jpe)$/ },
  { use: 'png', minQuality: 50 },

The default png compressor is lossy. If you want to replace it with a lossless compressor, you can use the following configuration.

builderPluginImageCompress(['jpeg', 'pngLossless', 'ico']);

The list of configuration options will eventually be converted to the corresponding bundler loader configuration, so compressors follow the same bottom-to-top matching rule.

For example, the png compressor will take precedence over the pngLossless compressor for the following configuration:

builderPluginImageCompress(['jpeg', 'pngLossless', 'ico', 'png']);
