@kev cool project.
as someone who appreciates efficiency, but has a personal blog weighing > 512kb, I feel a bit gutted.
you need awards or something to promote quality. I mean, light weight isn't enough - anyone who hasn't updated their blog in 15 years probably meets the 512kb criteria. it's got to be light weight but still awesome.
@kev yeah I saw that, but that's not what I mean.
Promoting low kb in isolation is a bit meaningless because it's not necessarily efficient, it's just light.
Was just thinking annual awards for best presentation or whatever would emphasise efficiency as the objective.
@levi that’s subjective though. Plus what would the award be? Would would pay for it? How is it presented? Where do i find the time to do that? It just more complexity and more to manage for very little return.
@kev fair enough. it's your project, and you're right to avoid feature creep.
I wasn't suggesting a monetary reward, just on-site recognition.
@kev Super sweet! Would be neat, though, to see how big a website is that the button redirects you to.
@kev Hm. In randomSite.js, you get the href attribute. Do the same but for the .after (example: https://stackoverflow.com/a/9633657) and wrap window.open() with a confirm where you show the visitor the size of the website 🙂
In my mind, this will work. But if it will work in practice, I don't know, but I think so 😅
@hankg it’s the total uncompressed size of the homepage.
We do this as the homepage is the landing page of the site and it means it’s standard for everyone. If we allowed people to submit any page, it allows for manipulation.
@edboythinks it’s definitely not yellow to my eye. The lighter background is slightly yellow, but the filled in part of the bar isn’t.
