"the only person who cares about your custom fonts is you"
In my case, you could just replace 'custom fonts' with 'website'.
@kev this reminds me of my old boss who had the exact same opinion about stylesheets. Thought all non-local styles should be abolished.
Fantastic article @kev! I’ve been meaning to audit one of my sites for ages and your post displays everything in a simple no bs manner. Although I must say I’m quite partial to my web fonts 🤓
Not related to WordPress but relevant for its userbase: in many cases SVG images are incredibly effective for replacing high definition PNG images, while sadly I see many use the latter also for extremely minimal graphics.
@alexl agreed. SVG don’t pixelate either. My avatar on my homepage is SVG and I think it’s like 6KB.
This is Inkscape 1.0 splashscreen in SVG:
Do you call these graphics "iconography"? 😉
Not to mention SVGs can be animated! See WebMonetization's logo: https://webmonetization.org/
@kev Re: JetPack. Do you mean expensive in the sense of resource usage (page speed) or in the sense of money for the paid service? I would only use the free functionality, but feel it's bloated and taking over my site.
@metbril I mean expensive monetarily. As I understand it, any code/functionality that isn't use in JetPack isn't loaded, so it won't cause a significant amount of bloat.
The plans are so confusing with JetPack, I've never really looked into it with any seriousness.
