To compress resources with Gzip in Shopify, you can follow these steps:

  1. Check if your theme supports Gzip compression: Go to the "Settings" section in your Shopify admin dashboard. Then click on "Themes" and select your theme. Look for a section called "Theme settings" or something similar, and check if there is an option to enable Gzip compression. If there is no option available, you may need to manually implement Gzip compression.
  2. Manually implement Gzip compression: If your theme does not have a built-in option for Gzip compression, you can manually enable it by editing the theme files. To do this, you will need to modify your theme's CSS and Javascript files to include Gzip compression.
  3. Add Gzip compression code to your theme files: To enable Gzip compression for CSS files, add the following code to the top of your theme's CSS files:
1
2
3
4
5
{% capture compressed_css %}
{% include 'style.css' %}
{% endcapture %}
{% assign compressed_css = compressed_css | split: '}' | join: '}' %}
{{ compressed_css | replace: ' ' | replace: '	' | strip }}


To enable Gzip compression for Javascript files, add the following code to the top of your theme's Javascript files:

1
2
3
4
{% capture compressed_js %}
{% include 'script.js' %}
{% endcapture %}
{{ compressed_js | replace: ' ' | replace: '	' | strip }}


  1. Test your website's loading speed: After implementing Gzip compression, test your website's loading speed using tools like Google PageSpeed Insights or GTmetrix. If Gzip compression is working correctly, you should see an improvement in your website's loading time.


By following these steps, you can compress your website's resources with Gzip in Shopify to improve your website's loading speed and performance.
