Speed up your site with Scriptalizer.com

Aren’t we all trying very hard to speed up our websites. You’ll find several tips to speed up your site, but one thing that really works is using a single CSS and a single JS.

Whenever you have multiple CSS and JavaScript files, to download each file, your browser makes a separate request to the web server for each of these files. This entire process increases the time to load your file. Hence, by converting all the CSS files to a single file and all the JS files to a single file, you cut down the number of requests.

This is where Scriptalizer.com comes in.

What does it do?

Turn this…

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery/jquery.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/jquery/jquery.form.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/myOwnScriptFile.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/style/longstylesheet.css" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="/style/anotherlongstylesheet.css" type="text/css" />

Into this…

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/scriptalizer.js" ></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/style/scriptalizer.css" type="text/css" />

Using Scriptalizer.com is really simple. All you need to do is upload your JS and CSS files to Scriptalizer and it will combine these into a single JS and a single CSS file respectively.

As an additional feature, it even minifies the resultant JS and CSS file to further reduce the total file size. Thus, the resultant is an extra speed boost to your site.

Sadly, the problem is that you need to upload your files, which is a manual process. So, it won’t work automatically with all the files on your site. However, on the plus side is that you need to do this only once.

    1. The only way to use it currently, is if you manually choose the CSS and JS files. There isn’t an automated solution as of now.

      However, it is good if you have several CSS and JS files in your theme.
