The Cost of Javascript Frameworks

Post by Accrete »

Have you considered the cost of all the JavaScript you have included in your site or blog?
There is no faster (pun intended) way to slow down a site than to use a bunch of JavaScript.

The thing about JavaScript is you end up paying a performance tax no less than four times:
1.The cost of downloading the file on the network
2.The cost of parsing and compiling the uncompressed file once downloaded
3.The cost of executing the JavaScript
4.The memory cost

The combination is very expensive....

...a framework should go beyond developer experience value and provide concrete value for the people using our sites. Performance is just one part of that—accessibility and security both come to mind as well—but it’s an essential part...

There may be some costs having a lot of JavaScript on your website, but there sure is also some winnings.

For example, have you tried to read a webpage with AJAX and see how much faster that is compared to a normal webpage load? It's much faster with AJAX, i guess it's like with any other programming language, there is good and bad. You need to figure out if JavaScript is the better tool for the job, there diffidently is cases where it is.

It's much faster with AJAX,
I will agree with that. I do like an AJAX contact form.
