Lighthouse CI


Lighthouse CI is a set of commands that make continuously running, asserting, saving, and retrieving Lighthouse results as easy as possible.

The node CLI (npm install -g @lhci/cli) runs Lighthouse, asserts results, and uploads reports.

The node server (npm install @lhci/server) stores results, compares reports, and displays historical results with a dashboard UI.

Use Cases

  • Get a Lighthouse report alongside every PR.
  • Prevent regressions in accessibility, SEO, offline support, and performance best practices.
  • Track performance metrics and Lighthouse scores over time.
  • Set and keep performance budgets on scripts and images.
  • Run Lighthouse many times to reduce variance.
  • Compare two versions of your site to find improvements and regressions of individual resources.
