Support » Plugin: All in one Minifier » Counter productive, because it pushes up TTFB immensly due to heavy calculation!

  • Let me clarify at the very beginning: The plugin does what it claims to do: Completely minifiyng the source code. If this is what you are searching for – look no further.

    HOWEVER. I guess we all agree that the key idea behind minifying is to further reduce filesize and to serve pages faster. This plugin does the exact opposite, as I could verify on several of my wordpress pages, all on different servers and configurations, PHP versions and so on. The calculations done by this plugin are so heavy, that TTFB is pushed up from around 80-100ms to around 1.000ms in some cases, so actually it made the page slower by a magnitude of 10!

    The tradeoff of a smaller served fileszie is completely eaten up by the calculations this plugin does to reduce the filesize. Deactivating the plugin immediatly boosted my lighthouse score up by around 5 to 10 points.

    Good idea – but sadly bad execution.

    Hey, thanks for pointing out this issue. Actually I am working on the same issue for long and I am fixing this in upcoming version. Basically it will not minify runtime like now what is happening. It will generate all content and serves after compression. So the time for run-time building will be reduced and you will find the better performance for page speed also request size will be reduced.
