Magento 2 - Lightspeed for Lighthouse optimizations

Process your Google Lighthouse feedback using sane defaults. This module defines several sections where you can define common feedback from Google Lighthouse.

Installation

Run this in your Magento 2 project root;

composer require elgentos/module-lightspeed
php bin/magento module:enable Elgentos_Lightspeed
php bin/magento setup:upgrade

Features

Javascript handling

Move all script tags before body end. This is the default after installing this module, no exceptions.

Connection optimization (layout.xml)

Allow modern browsers to use DNS prefetching and preconnecting.

DNS prefetching only does a DNS lookup, preconnecting already connects to the remote server and does SSL handshake. Preconnecting is limited to a few connections which is defined in your browser, we have fallback to DNS-prefetching, but think before you add everything to preconnect.

Fonts (layout.xml)

Load external fonts to the head section.

Styles (layout.xml)

Inline CSS in the head or before body end for critical CSS.

External CSS (layout.xml)

We have several options for optimizing external CSS;

  • Directly in the head;
  • Before body end;
  • Defer till all other stuff is done.

Javascript (layout.xml)

Javascript via XML before body end via layout XML.

Usage

Preferred usage to keep everything together is to add a handle to layout/default.xml. You can also add controller specific rules, add them in the controller specific handles, for instance layout/catalog_category_default.xml

You can also add specific rules and bind them to your module, instead to the theme.

app/design/frontend/your/theme/Magento_Theme/layout/default.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page layout="1column" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
    <update handle="default_lightspeed" />

    <!-- .... snap ... -->

</page>

After that all default lighthouse feedback can go into layout/default_lightspeed.xml

app/design/frontend/your/theme/Magento_Theme/layout/default_lightspeed.xml

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
