Feature Request

User Story

As a developer, I can see that lots of code is loading on each page of the website when Give is activated even it does not need. We can improve plugin loading performance by reorganizing plugin code.

For Example:

  1. tcpdf lib: only needed when generates pdf
  2. background process lib: only needed when run updates
  3. give-metabox-functions.php: only needed when on form edit page
  4. give-readme-parser.php: only needed when update plugin
  5. give-html-elements: only needed in admin
  6. import-functions only needed on tools page
  7. give email functionality mostly needed when send email
  8. load logging lib only if log
  9. license handler mostly needed in backend

Note: After making these changes to code, I can see improvement (check screenshot). but few changes from above list can break addons, so need to discuss it.


P3 Plugin Profiler WordPress Plugin


After reorganize few files

Acceptance Criteria

  • TCPDF loads only when generating pdf report for donation income.
  • Form Metabox functions load only in admin.
  • Give HTML element functions load only in admin.: Not possible now. because tribute is using this in preview card functionality.
  • Import functions load only in admin.
  • License handler class loads only in admin.: Not possible now because most of addon is using Give_License class to register addon.
  • Template loader class loads only on the frontend.
  • Email access class loads only on the frontend.
  • Process donation related file to load only on the frontend. : Not possible now because this file also contains few helpers functions.

  • ....
