Unleash the Need for Speed! 🏎️💨
The world of technology is always moving forward, and with the rise of no-code platforms, creating web applications has become easier and more accessible than ever. However, even the most user-friendly platform can't save you from slow performance.
As you know toddle is built by toddle in toddle and its pretty darn rapid. ⚡️ That's why we've put together our 7 tips for speeding up your #NoCode app! 👇
🔬 Analyse Your Web App's Performance:
The first step to fixing performance issues is to identify them. Analysing your web application's performance is crucial to understanding where your biggest performance bottlenecks are and how you can fix them. There are many great tools available for analysing your web app's performance, and we recommend using Google PageSpeed Insights. With Google PageSpeed Insights, you'll get a detailed report of your website's performance, including suggestions for improvement, and a score out of 100.
📸 Optimise Media Content:
Images and videos are a great way to enhance the user experience of your web app, but they can also severely slow it down if they're not properly optimised for the web. Large image and video files take longer to load, and this can have a negative impact on the overall performance of your app. To avoid this, it's important to optimise your media content. There are many tools available for optimising images, and our favourite is Squoosh.
🐢 Be Mindful of Third-Party Scripts:
Third-party scripts can be a great way to enhance the functionality of your no-code app, but they can also have a significant impact on its performance. When adding third-party scripts to your app, it's important to be mindful of their impact on performance and choose wisely. Make sure to check your page speed regularly and be mindful of the scripts you add to your app. For example, tools like Google Analytics and Intercom are great for tracking and communicating with your users, but they can also slow down your app if you're not careful.
🐰 Fast Data for a Fast App:
The speed of your API requests is crucial to the overall performance of your app. If your API requests are slow, your users will have a poor experience, and this can negatively impact your app's popularity. To ensure a fast and seamless experience for your users, it's important to choose a backend that is optimised for speed. Additionally, it's important to regularly monitor the performance of your API requests to make sure they're as fast as possible. We recommend using Supabase for lightning-fast data requests.
🏏 Avoid Over-Fetching:
Over-fetching can have a significant impact on the performance of your app. When your app fetches too much data, it takes longer to load, and this can negatively impact the user experience. To avoid over-fetching, it's important to use pagination to limit the amount of data fetched in a single request. Most no-code platforms support pagination, making it easy to limit the amount of data fetched and improve the performance of your app.
⛓️ Unchain Your App's Speed:
Avoid Request Chaining. Request chaining refers to a situation where one or more data requests have to wait for another to finish before it can be executed. This can significantly increase the load time of your application and affect the user experience. To avoid request chaining, consider using parallel requests or asynchronous requests to load data simultaneously, rather than waiting for one request to finish before starting another. This can help to speed up your application and provide a seamless user experience.
🏘️ Location, Location, Performance:
Choose a No-Code Platform Available in Every Region. The location of your application's hosting server can have a significant impact on the performance of your no-code app. To reduce the data travel time and speed up the user experience, it's important to choose a hosting server that is located close to your target users. This will help to minimise the latency and ensure that your app loads quickly and smoothly. Consider opting for a no-code platform that is available in every region, so you can choose the hosting server that is closest to your target users.
So. To round things up; performance matters when it comes to building a no-code app. By following the tips outlined in this post, you can ensure that your app is fast, responsive, and provides a seamless user experience. From analysing your application's performance to choosing a no-code platform that is available in every region, these tips can help you to speed up your no-code app and take your user experience to the next level.
