Performance is Climate Protection
#blog #performance #climate protection #webdev #ssg #astro #nuxt
Website performance is climate protection. Every bit of data that is transferred over the internet consumes energy. What can you do to reduce your website’s carbon footprint and what did I do to reduce mine?
Another problem are huge images. Most images can’t even be seen in full resolution on most screens.
What you can do
- Use a static site generator like Astro when possible
- Reduce the size of images or avoid them completely (like I did on this blog)
- Use a green hoster
- Enable compression (gzip, brotli)
- Use an adblocker. Ads are just unnecessary :-) (I use uBlock Origin which is available for all major browsers)
