Is the app script file optimised?
This is very convenient to minimise the app loading times, as all app code is loaded in a single request.
It also minimises the risk of conflicting with some other app or tool code.
Furthermore, the app script is:
- Minified (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minification_(programming) for details).
- Compressed (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_compression for details)
- Served from a top-world CDN (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_delivery_network for details)
- Served used HTTP/2 (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP/2 for details)
That allows our app code to load in milliseconds into your store:
Please note that although our script loads very fast, it may start loading after another slow component in your store. You can change the order of the scripts in your theme.liquid template to avoid that effect.
Finally, the app script is also cached for the subsequent requests, so it will only downloaded once during a visit.
