A few months ago I wrote an article in Web Performance Calendar, one of the most famous performance websites in the past 10+ years.
It is created and maintained by Stoyan Stefanov and his idea for the calendar is simple: from December 1st till December 31st, publish 1 new article every day. It is an archive of high-quality, long and containing tips, ideas and insights articles.
I was curious what is the speed performance of Vbox7.com website, a vastly visited website in Bulgaria. Vbox7.com is video platform just like Youtube.com but only with Bulgarian content. In December 2019 the total (desktop, mobile & APPs) visits are 3 200 000, quite a lot, more info you can find on their page here.
Based on that I decided to not spend too much time and do quick performance analysis on the website.
Push notifications are a really nice feature, you can trigger a notification to the user device with any text that you want with title, image, body and it even can make the mobile device to vibrate (depends on the browser) when receiving it.
This is a really cool way to get the user attention when you have promotions, forgotten baskets full of products or you have published something new.
Recently I helped one company to prevent common emails for registrations and etc. to be marked as SPAM automatically from users mailboxes.
When you are using third-party service like MailChimp and with your own domain to send your emails you have to do several steps to prove all mailboxes that you are you and that you are not some spammer.
This week I had to help a friend with his new small ReacJS website running on Apache.
His problem was that URIs which does not exist the Apache was returning as 404 pages, he needed a common rule used by a lot of PHP frameworks, Rewrite all URIs which are not Files or Directories to /index.html
Example URL www.example.com/myprofile to actually load www.example.com/index.html and let the ReactJS route do his work and show what it needs.
Recently I had to deploy one newly build Magento 2 site to its server for which there was no info what has been installed or what is the infrastructure (the normal case where they don’t follow your requirements and are not giving much info).
