Abstract

The Resources plugin allows the developer to develop thier .css and .js files in multiple files. The plugin will combine the files at runtime in order to reduce the number of downloads required by the browser. This can help improve the performance of the application.
We will discuss both how to use the plugin, as well as some of the internals of how the plugin works.
