[Experiment] [DO NOT MERGE] Improve load performance of App WebWorkers #808

wants to merge 4 commits into from

@sohkai sohkai commented May 28, 2019

Quick and dirty code to try a couple things out:

  • deb66f0: Move the dataURI transform into a webworker
  • 8f56f3f: Rather than pass a giant (~2-4mb) string back, use an ArrayBuffer
  • 0048d40: Transform the dataURIs one at a time
  • 0cfb581: Start the workers one at a time, and delay them by 1s

Of all of them, it looks like the last one "improves" the experience the most, by hiding some of the jank to after the loader's finished animating. All the other tricks made very little difference in the jank :(.

No matter the attempt, these giant spikes stay :(. Also not sure why the profiler reports them as part of "network". This what the app currently looks like on load (without these changes):

The big "data:uri" network blobs seem to be causing some trouble; for reference, the scripts have already been downloaded from network previously. Before, when we were passing blobURIs into the WebWorkers, this would take ~30ms (vs. up to 300ms for Finance's script).

Initializing the WebWorker itself doesn't appear to cause much of a problem, it usually finishes within 100ms.

Closing as this has been solved via a different solution (see #819).
