psi Build Status NPM psi package

PageSpeed Insights with reporting

Run mobile and desktop performance tests for your deployed site using Google PageSpeed Insights v5 with tidy reporting for your build process.

Install

$ npm install psi

Usage

const psi = require('psi');

(async () => {
  // Get the PageSpeed Insights report
  const { data } = await psi('https://theverge.com');
  console.log('Speed score:', data.lighthouseResult.categories.performance.score);

  // Output a formatted report to the terminal
  await psi.output('https://theverge.com');
  console.log('Done');

  // Supply options to PSI and get back speed
  const data2 = await psi('https://theverge.com', {
    nokey: 'true',
    strategy: 'desktop'
  });
  console.log('Speed score:', data2.data.lighthouseResult.categories.performance.score);
})();

As of PSI 2.x, we expose both the PageSpeed Insights speed and usability scores. The latter is based on usability rules that score a page based on factors like the presence of a sensible mobile viewport.

Returns a promise for the response data from Google PageSpeed Insights.

url

Type: string

URL of the page for which the PageSpeed Insights API should generate results.

Common Use cases

Getting PSI into your build process.

A sample Gulp project using PSI is available.

If you use Grunt, grunt-pagespeed is a task by James Cryer that uses PSI under the hood.

For testing local projects, we recommend using psi-ngrok or ngrok.

Getting filmstrips

Filmstrips are returned by the v5 API as data uri's but the psi tool does not expose them on the cli. If you want to get filmstrips (or any audit details) you can require psi and get them from the audits object:

const psi = require('psi');

(async () => {
  // Get the PageSpeed Insights report
  const {data} = await psi('https://theverge.com');
  console.log(data.lighthouseResult.audits['screenshot-thumbnails'].details.items);
})();
