Roadroller: Flattens Your JavaScript Demo

Roadroller is a heavyweight JavaScript packer for large demos. It was originally designed for js13kGames, but it remains usable for demos as small as 4KB. Depending on the input it can provide up to 15% additional compression compared to best ZIP/gzip recompressors. Try it online!

Roadroller is considered "heavyweight" unlike typical JS packers such as JSCrush or RegPack, because it is quite resource intensive and requires both a considerable amount of memory and a non-negligible run time. The default should work for most devices, but you can configure both aspects as you need.
