1. Deferred Code Loading

Use dynamic imports to load libraries only when needed.

For example: If you need something only after user interaction, load it then, not at the start!

2. Identify Unused JS and CSS  

Utilize the Coverage tab in DevTools.

It shows the usage percentage of each of your files.

Clicking on a file reveals which lines are used.

This makes it easy to see what's not being used.

3. Optimize Your Web Images

   - Use WEBP or AVIF formats whenever possible.

   - Use SVG for icons and vector images.

   - Avoid PNG (only in very specific cases).

4. Master HTML and CSS

You’d be surprised how many complex tasks done with JavaScript can be achieved with just a few lines of CSS. Refer to MDN Web Docs for comprehensive guides and resources.

5. Avoid Unnecessary Dependencies

Prioritize using the web platform (e.g., axios vs. fetch).

Look for smaller alternatives to libraries.

 You can check the cost of each library using tools like Bundlephobia.

6. Be Cautious with External Fonts

 They are a critical resource and can cause many issues such as flickering, content shifts, and size discrepancies.

   Best practices:

   - Use as few as possible.

   - Optimize them and use the woff2 format.

   - Serve them from your server (NOT a CDN). Check out Google Fonts for optimized web fonts.

7. Organize Your <head> Tag Properly

   The order of what you load is crucial!

   We recommend the "capo.js" utility. 

   It tells you how to arrange your tags for maximum performance and to avoid unnecessary blocking.

8. Avoid Initial Loaders

   Use Server-Side Rendering (or Static Rendering) to avoid a blank page at the start. Avoid showing a loader at the beginning as it makes users wait.

9. Compress and Minify Your Static Files

   Minifying removes unnecessary white spaces, comments, and unused or duplicate code, saving valuable bytes.

   Compression uses encoding like Brotli to reduce the amount of data transferred by the browser.

10. Fewer HTTP Requests, the Better

Especially to external sites!

Using preconnect can help, but it’s not a cure-all.

The best practice is to minimize requests so resources don’t have to wait.

11. Caching

Use HTTP headers to control cache and avoid unnecessary reloads. 

Hashed files can create infinite caches (e.g., file.37182fag.js).

Typically, bundlers like Vite do this for you.

12. Preload What You Can

    - Use preconnect to reduce latency with early connections to third-party servers.

    - Prefetch to load future resources.

    - Preload to load essential resources and improve initial rendering.
