html-minifier hangs with --minify-js

See original GitHub issue

Command never returns and an empty file is created. No problems without --minify-js

Create empty file. (also happens with real html file) touch test.html

html-minifier -o test.min.html --remove-comments --collapse-whitespace test.html works.

html-minifier -o test.min.html --remove-comments --collapse-whitespace --minify-js test.html never returns.

Any help appreciated.

Turns out also --minify-css is broken for me.

It isn’t explained clearly what that value should be, and it is unfortunate that html-minifier just hangs instead of errors 😦

Okay, thanks, works now. Some warning would have been nice, since this worked without value quite nice in earlier versions.
