perma-link to the smallest file on my server:
http://minime.stephan-brumme.com/files/bootstrap/bootstrap-3.3.7.min.js

You will automatically get the smallest Bootstrap 3.3.7 file, ETag caching is available and
if your browser doesn't support GZIP decompression then the uncompressed version will be sent.

Currently best Zopfli settings

Save 347 bytes by using my Bootstrap 3.3.7 Zopfli version instead of the best available CDN (3.67% smaller than jsdelivr, 9463 vs. 9810 bytes):
You can use my super-compressed files for whatever purpose you like as long as you respect the library's original license agreement.
There are no restrictions from my side - but please avoid hot-linking if you run a high-traffic website.

These command-line settings yielded the best compression ratio so far (Linux version of zopfli-krzymod):
zopfli --i1000000 --mb8 --mls128 --bsr8 --lazy --ohh

(found July 26, 2016)
Description Value Parameter
iterations 1000000  --i1000000
maximum blocks 8  --mb8
maximum length score 128  --mls128
block splitting recursion 8  --bsr8
lazy matching in LZ77 yes  --lazy

Heatmaps

This Zopfli heatmap visualizes how compression changes when modifying the --bsr and --mls parameter.
Cell's contents is the best filesize achieved (in bytes, hover with mouse over cells to see number of iterations).

Good parameters are green, bad are red. The best and worst are bold as well.
The brightness of the blue background color indicates how many iterations were processed:
10,000, 1,000,000 or 10,000,000.

Due to the Monte Carlo design of my search algorithm, not all parameters have reached the same number of iterations yet:
Iterations Min. Bytes Reduction Coverage
100 9466 bytes 100%
1,000 9465 bytes -1 byte 100%
10,000 9464 bytes -1 byte 100%
100,000 9464 bytes 2.32%
1,000,000 9463 bytes -1 byte 2.32%
10,000,000 9463 bytes 0.29%

KZIP has far less options available for tuning/optimization. I only played around with the number of blocks (parameter -n):
Blocks Min. Bytes Compared To Best Zopfli Compared To Best KZIP
9525 bytes +62 bytes (+0.66%) +1 byte
9524 bytes +61 bytes (+0.64%)
9528 bytes +65 bytes (+0.69%) +4 bytes
9546 bytes +83 bytes (+0.88%) +22 bytes
9555 bytes +92 bytes (+0.97%) +31 bytes
9599 bytes +136 bytes (+1.44%) +75 bytes
9645 bytes +182 bytes (+1.92%) +121 bytes
9676 bytes +213 bytes (+2.25%) +152 bytes
9720 bytes +257 bytes (+2.72%) +196 bytes

Non-DEFLATE Algorithms

Archivers based on completely different compression algorithms often produce superior results.
Unfortunately, browsers only support gzip compression at the moment.

Detailled Analysis

I wrote a DEFLATE decoder in Javascript. Click the button below to start a client-side analysis of the smallest gzipped files (may take a second):


Notes: pigz is a fast open source multi-threaded implementation of gzip written by one of the original authors of gzip.
However, when using compression level 11, pigz actually switches to the slower Zopfli algorithm and isn't multi-threaded anymore.
KrzyMOD's extensions to Zopfli offer the highest level of configuration and is therefore used for my brute-force search.
Ken Silverman wrote the closed-source KZIP compression program and Jonathon Fowler ported it to Linux.
Defluff was created by Joachim Henke; DeflOpt is a tool by Ben Jos Walbeehm.
