Core Web Vitals: Spring 2022

Review of some new tools and tips to speed up sites for Core Web Vitals

This week, I went back to everyone's favorite topic again and that is Core Web Vitals. I think the more that we work with it and the more time and energy we put into it will become part of the development process. But, I feel like there is still things to learn and still keep working into the workflow.

A new tool that I found for testing was https://github.com/YellowLabTools/YellowLabTools

YellowLab Tools is a tool for testing that you can self host and get some good metrics from your sites and get some actionable items. It was flagging things that I was never considering and it is worth running some sites through it. Just to give you something new to look at and consider.

Another tool to pull some quick Chrome UX data is https://treo.sh/sitespeed/. It is a paid service but you can test your site for free. Nothing, that different than other tools but the charts and the layout are nice on the ees for a quick glance.

Finally, we have an article from CSS Wizardy https://csswizardry.com/2022/03/optimising-largest-contentful-paint/. This is the type of write up that I wish I was able to get about a year ago. There are lot of tidbits in here to go over and this is a must read for anyone working on Performance.
