Description

See this thread for a description of the problem:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23939722/nginx-gzip-not-compressing-javascript-files/33777895#33777895

... the best-supported, old standard mime type for javascript in the browser is actually text/javascript. And if you configure that, in /etc/nginx/mime.types, it works.

So the gzip module of nginx is simply built against previous standards, and apparently doesn't properly process the application/javascript mime type.

Please, check the gzip_types directive in your configuration.
