  • 10. But... you can’t make a script async if it does document.writewidget.js does document.write:init: function(x) { ... this.id = x.id || "twtr-widget-" + this._widgetNumber; if (!x.id) { document.write(<div class="twtr-widget" id=" + this.id + "></div>) }}What if we create the DIV and specify the id?

  • 14. While placing JavaScript files at the bottom of thepage is a best practice for website performance,when including the anywhere.js file, always placethe file as close to the top of the page as possible.The anywhere.js file is small (<3KB) and is deliveredto the page GZIPd.Further, all dependancies for @Anywhere featuresare loaded asynchronously, on-demand so as to notimpact performance of the host page.
  • 15. three facts: 1. failures happen 2. 304 & 200 both produce frontend SPOF 3. anywhere.js expires after 15 minutes
  • 16. snippet cache timeshttp://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js - 30 minshttp://connect.facebook.net/en_US/all.js - 15 minshttp://www.google-analytics.com/ga.js - 120 mins
  • 17. “bootstrap scripts” often have short cache timesmore frequent Conditional GET requests means frontend SPOF is more likelybut short cache times is the only way snippet owners can push updatesor is it?
