Cannot minify bbUI.js

The stock bbUI.js download is uncompressed an relatively big for a mobile library. Has anyone been able to minify this file? My attempts with the usual minifiers, including the online YUI compressor, have failed complaining of syntax errors in bbUI.js.

compressing is important in mobile apps when they have to access the files remotely. As WebWorks works locally, it doesn't really make much of a difference.

Re: Cannot minify bbUI.js

I think I successfully compressed mine using http://jscompress.com/


I haven't had errors so far using bbui-0.9.4.js.  I also compressed my CSS using: http://tools.w3clubs.com/cssmin/


It drops a few kb.
