I have noticed that page load speed on my app in development has become incredibly slow recently.
Just about a month ago, I would see my page begin loading almost immediately. Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed that there is about 4-5 seconds of a waiting period for other pages to load before my page is loaded.
I tested my apps page speed and got really poor results. The diagnostic report indicated there is about 5.5 seconds of ‘stuff’ getting loaded that could be optimized. All of that ‘stuff’ has nothing to do with my app as far as I know and seems to be just associated with connecting into bubble to render the page.
I really don’t know so much about this stuff to speak with an authority on the issue. For me it is just personal observation of a slower page load speed and a simple test that shows it is slow and has a lot of opportunity to improve.
In this idea of my lack of understanding I decided to do a test app. The page has a single shape element on it.
These are the results I got back.
These are results are very similar to what I got back for my app that is loading elements, data and images.
It seems like all the Opportunities are in bubble’s court. The ‘eliminate render-blocking resources’, ‘multiple page redirects’ and ‘server response time’ don’t seem to be something that I as the developer has any ability to change with the way I optimize my page, especially since these test results are for a page with a single shape on it.
Has anybody with more experience seen a considerable drop in their page load speed?
Could this page load speed performance be due to my being on a personal plan that has only the base amount of capacity? This test app is on hobby plan.
Would this performance improve with capacity boosts? And if so, how much capacity is needed to reduce all of these bottlenecks? I’d really like to only have to worry about optimizing my apps pages to improve the page load speed.
For example, this page with only a single shape on it, I’d like to know how much it costs a month to make the page load speed be in the 90-100 range.
For anybody else interested in testing this page and seeing if they get better results, this is the link to the preview mode
I used google tool ‘pagespeed’ to analyze
I am wondering how much of the recent changes that bubble has undertaken to fix some outstanding issues have caused what seems like a decrease in performance. I really don’t have any metrics from the past to compare, just personal observation.
@josh would any of the issues discussed in this thread be related to what seems like a decrease in page load speed?
