Mastodon frontend perf suggestions
I took some time this weekend to analyze Mastodon's frontend performance. I didn't manage to write many fixes (just a config fix and better caching for static assets) so this was mostly just investigation.
The point of this document is to lay out some of my initial thoughts, since it may be helpful for others. There's a lot of technical jargon, so you may want to get some background by looking at my blog post on "The cost of small modules" and my talk on "Solving the web performance crisis" (slides).
