    Hi,

    They are no longer available in the download builder I'm afraid. They weren't used much and were taking a fair amount of server resources for the little they were used. It also added complications for the NPM / Yarn installs which are now shown in the download builder.

    However, the plug-ins are all still available - there is now just the extra step of needing to include the plug-in manually.

    Regards,
    Allan

    Ah I see. I can understand it for the npm/yarn install but it was handy to build all the code into 1 minified file but I can do that myself I suppose

    @allan sorry to open this issue again, but would it be possible to provide a link to the minified version of the code on the extensions pages (e.g select2) that uses the same minification tools you use for the download builder?

    This way I can just append it to the end of my single minified file from the download builder

    Hi,

    I pass it through Closure Compiler for the minification of the DataTables extensions.

    However, you could use JSMin, UglifyJS or any other minification tool - it shouldn't make any difference since they will leave the externals as they are.

    I will look into adding a download option for min file of the plug-ins though - thanks for the suggestion.
