A Faster Blog, Faster

Alex Russell

Skipping to the punchline, my blog builds 35% faster and Frances' is north of 40% faster. Moving this site to Eleventy and Netlify has been a great way to improve the performance of the deployed end-product, which was reason enough to make the switch. During the port from Wordpress I've also been pleasantly surprised at how quick the build process is, particularly given the ways build-time work has grown as I've added features like comment imports.

New Blog, Who Dis?

Alex Russell

Most of that is a consequence of this blog's sFTP-era Blogger ? For the past few months, I've been on-again-off-again updating this site to migrate it from VPS-hosted WordPress to 11ty ("eleven-tea") and Netlify. I'd avoided the move for sundry reasons that boiled down to inertia, but a recent weekend spent on maintainance added to a treadmill of re-testing WP to ensure it hadn't inadvertantly slipped more JS in via plugin "upgrade" finally wore me down.

Faster remainders when the divisor is a constant: beating compilers and libdivide
