TOPIC: (SOLVED)Font Awesome CSS - Too slow loading

Font Awesome CSS - Too slow loading 1 year 6 months ago #14976

Hello!
I'm testing speed loading for my site with Astroid and found that it too slow.
I found that Astroid loads css from use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.8.1/css/all.css
When it loads on my site - it takes more than 2 seconds. It's not normal. All page should loads 1-2 seconds.
So, I tested this file individually.


2.3 seconds!!!
Ok, sometimes it loads faster



But 0.7 seconds it's too slow!

How we can fix it?

Interesting, let me run this by the dev team to see if this is something we want to use in Astroid.

You just need to replace css from use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.8.1/css/all.css to cloudflare or in local folder of template.

I ran it by the dev team and decided not to do this, since it'll add to the size of the Astroid package, which we want to keep as much smaller as possible.

First of all, it's just ridiculous.
File size is 55kb.
Next, site speed is much more important, then package size.
You may add new option in template settings - Load fontawesome css from fontawesome.com or from local folder (user should set path) - if you don't want to add this css in package.
You made perfect framework with couple of little, but very important bad things (read also my other topics - this, this, this).
Sorry, will search another.

lipatovroman has a point, loading speed is very important, and should be as lower as possible.

I have worked with other frameworks, but Astroid has a great potential to dominate among joomla frameworks.

I couldn't agree more with you or lipatovroman.

It's a valid point and will be addressed very soon.

I know its an old post but, I adde to it, just if somebody (like me) look at it.

That was added in Astroid plugin?
I just discover it ? I don’t see any mention of the cool possibilities in the documentation?


Astroid Backend Loader
Ability to disable Astroid backend pre-loader (The Meteorite), if you don't like it you can disable it via the plugin now.
I personally love it! :woohoo:

Font Awesome Loading
Ability to load Awesome by CDN or Locally (for better performance)

Keyboard Shortcuts
docs.joomdev.com/article/hotkeys/
Use keyboard shortcuts to save Astroid settings and clear cache, save the backend settings with Ctrl+ S and clear cache with Delete
