A very light solution to load web pages faster.

Browser Support

Chrome Firefox IE Opera Safari
5.0+ ✔ 4.0+ ✔ 10+ ✔ 11.5 ✔ 5.0+ ✔

How does it work?

It's an agnostic library that uses ajax and pushState to deliver a faster navigation experience. pageAccelerator is a very light version of turbolinks and pjax (our minfied file is just 2.2KB!). Basically what it does is follow every link in your application and each click it loads the page in background and replaces the content correctly, keeping the real datas from body and head, updating the title.

Installation

To install pageAccelerator, execute:

  npm install page-accelerator --save

or

  bower install page-accelerator --save

Or simply use the minified file from the dist/ directory.

How to use?

pageAccelerator doesn't depend on jQuery, Zepto or any other library to work. You need just to include it at the end of your HTML code:

  <script src="page-accelerator.min.js"></script>

Then you need to call the pageAccelerator function, such as the example bellow:

  pageAccelerator();

Just call it and pageAccelerator was already following the web application links.

For links that you don't want to be followed, you need simply add data-pageAccelerator="false".

Parameters

pageAccelerator can also receive an object as a parameter with the following options:

  • beforeLoading function: Will be called whenever a new page was requested by a click or the browser back
  • afterLoading function: Will be called whenever a new page has been loaded

Team

pageAccelerator was made with love by a bunch of awesome contributors.
