I recently exported my website after having finished it.
Here it is: https://preview.webflow.com/preview/webimo?preview=63466f63cecd48e1f5de58f1cbe7a6d4
I wasn’t happy with the size it came out (255 KB), so I just thought I’d post to say the Optimisation is questionable and here’s what I’ve done so far to reduce the file size. FYI, THESE ARE DESIGNER FRIENDLY METHODS.
I used http://csscompressor.com/ to reduce the normalize.css from 8 KB to 2 KB.
I used various “PNG Compressors” to reduce the image file sizes of images webflow generated for me? I don’t even know why. (Can someone fill me in?) My original image was 6 KB, and the two images generated were 17 and 10 KB, which I reduced to 11 and 5 KB.
Depending on your index.html file size, you could also optimise that using a tool such as http://minifycode.com/html-minifier/. Additionally, you could remove the webflow related meta code in the header.
I have merged the two webflow css files, and have removed all unnecessary code. It totals 2342 lines of code at 50 KB. After completing this process, the merged file is 13 KB with roughly 900 lines. If this process would take to long for you, simply using https://css.github.io/csso/csso.html.
I haven’t finished compressing, but in about 5 minutes, I’ve gone from 255 KB to 118 KB. Which is still not up to my standards, but is definitely better
- All webflow projects begin with a 146 KB js file, and a 37 KB CSS file.
- Interactions are added onto the js file, starting from line 4332.
Kind Regards, Paul
