You can modify the module's settings so you can configure the HTML java compressor and YUI compressor. You can also enable caching of the compressed content for added performance in your CacheBox provider of your choice.
Just add a HTMLCompressor in the variables scope in your ColdBox config/Coldbox.cfc configuration file.

// Compressor Settings
HTMLCompressor = {
	// Compress on preRender before ColdBox outputs
	renderCompressor = true,
	// Enable caching of the unique content instead of compressing on demand, done via content hashes
	renderCaching = true,
	// The CacheBox provider to store the compressed content
	renderCacheProvider = "template",
	// The default timeout of the cached templates
	renderCacheTimeout = 60,
	// The idle timeout of the cached templates
	renderCacheLastAccessTimeout = 15,
	// The rendering cache key prefix
	renderCachePrefix = "cbox-compressor",
	// Java Compressor settings
	RemoveComments = true,
	RemoveMultiSpaces = true,
	RemoveIntertagSpaces = false,
	RemoveQuotes = false,
	CompressCss = true,

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. ."
