@onyxfish I'm interested in seeing if you could share "gzip_assets.py". We're in the middle of writing deploy scripts for our app. Currently we minify all JS/CSS files locally using CodeKit, then have a toggle which determines whether to server raw or minified versions. But we'd like to create GZip versions of the files instead of simply minifying them. This would be flexible.

Care to share?

Sure, it's actually already public on this gist: https://gist.github.com/onyxfish/330420#file-gzip_assets-py
