512KB Club

The internet has become a bloated mess. Massive JavaScript libraries, countless client-side queries and overly complex frontend frameworks are par for the course these days.

When online newspapers like The Guardian are over 4MB in size, you know there's a problem. Why does an online newspaper need to be over 4MB in size? It's crazy.

But we can make a difference - all it takes is some optimisation. Do you really need that extra piece of JavaScript? Does your WordPress site need a theme that adds lots of functionality you're never going to use? Are those huge custom fonts really needed? Are your images optimised for the web?

The 512KB Club is a collection of performance-focused web pages from across the Internet. To qualify your website must satisfy both of the following requirements:

  1. It must be an actual site that contains a reasonable amount of information, not just a couple of links on a page (more info here).
  2. Your total UNCOMPRESSED web resources must not exceed 512KB.

How to create a PR to add your site to the 512KB Club

  1. Fork this repository.
  2. Get the UNCOMPRESSED size of your website's homepage.
    1. Do a GTMetrix scan on your website.
    2. Once complete, click on the Waterfall tab to make sure the uncompressed size of your site is less than 512KB.
  3. Navigate to _data/sites.yml and add your site (template below).
  4. When creating the PR, please include a link to the GT Metrix results in the PR comment.
