[Showoff Saturday] Have been rebuilding my personal website/blog with svelte-kit. The main goal was performance and adherence to “best practice”. Still WIP, but would love to hear your thoughts/feedback.
I have been working on rebuilding my old site/blog from scratch using svelte-kit, typescript, and Sass/SCSS, and am loving it so far. There have been some hiccups and anomalies, but that is to be expected with early stage technology.The site: https://lmw.io/It’s hosted using a custom adapter I wrote for CloudFlare workers with significant performance enhancements. I’m in the process of porting that to the existing adapter; I’ve hopened a PR, but with a lot on my plate recently I have not completed that work yet.I’m working on an article that covers the thoughts and considerations that have gone into it, hoping to post that and share with you guys once I’ve wrapped up some remaining work on the site itself.My main focus with the rebuild is performance and adherence to “best practice” (performance, accessibility, and SEO). While there is room for improvement, I’m quite excited by where it is at so far. Lighthouse scores for both mobile and desktop are (usually) 100 across the board. Navigating the entire site (clicking through all pages) only transfers about 1.2MB, smaller than most individual pages on my old wordpress based site.Would love to hear your thoughts or feedback, feel free to ask any questions you might have about how it was built.Details
