Rider Bundler and Minifier


Hi all,

I am looking to fully transition from VS 2019 to Rider, however in most of my projects I have been using this popular extension to bundle and minify my assets. Is there any way to achieve the same behaviour in Rider? 

Preferable I am looking for a way that utilises the existing bundleconfig.json files created from the previous extension, but I am open to any suggestions.

Hi Georgios, Thank you for contacting us! Currently there is no plans to implement something identical to this extension. However there is a way to minify JS, it is done via Rider's File Watcher mechanism. Please refer to the web-help article: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/rider/Minifying_JavaScript.html

What are your suggestions to build JS and CSS file on BUILD? Most of us DevOps to build production from Git.

Hi Tomas,
Parcel or Webpack bundler seem to be most suitable for building a production package.
  • Parcel would be perfect for small projects and requires zero configuration.
  • If you have a sophisticated project, Webpack is more appropriate, as it gives you space in terms of configuration ability.

Kind regards,

Just wanted to let you know that https://www.nuget.org/packages/BuildBundlerMinifier works in Rider at the build time.
