After consulting with several companies on performance related issues, it became clear that one of the biggest performance issues facing websites today is the sheer amount of JavaScript needed to power the page. The demand for more interactive and responsive applications has driven JavaScript usage through the roof. It’s quite common for large sites to end up with over 1 MB of JavaScript code on their page even after minification. But do today’s web applications really need that much JavaScript?

  • SirWay Alexander Vey, Web Developer at Everywhere Great slides with a nice pick of illustrations within! I really enjoyed stepping through and appreciate the point you made. The overkill of JavaScript reminds me on that slogan 'When C++ is your hammer, suddenly everything starts to look like a thumb.' - Imho JavaScript is in fact a hammer but a lot of people want to build a house and think JavaScript is the hole toolbox. 9 months ago

  • JoelDay Joel Day Interesting, I've recently re-written a subscription system that used to entirely rely on javascript to one that works with none, and only uses small amounts of javascript where necessary.

    While I do love Javascript, I actually really enjoyed the process of building a system that works just as well with as without javascript!

  • MatthewTurney Matthew Turney But how would you make your app work offline? The point of doing your routing and rendering in the client is to allow apps to work seamlessly offline. However, I do agree that if that is not a requirement then it's best to spread the load around and do more just in time loading of components. 9 months ago
