performance-leaderboard

A plugin to run Lighthouse against a set of urls to see which site is the fastest.

Installation

npm install performance-leaderboard

Features

  • Median Run Selection: performance-leaderboard will run Lighthouse on the same site multiple times and select the Median run. It factors in First Contentful Paint, Largest Contentful Paint, and Time to Interactive when selecting the median run.

Usage

  1. Create a test file, say sample.js:
const PerfLeaderboard = require("performance-leaderboard");

(async function() {

	let urls = [
		"https://www.gatsbyjs.org/",
		"https://nextjs.org/",
		"https://www.11ty.dev/",
		"https://vuejs.org/",
		"https://reactjs.org/",
		"https://jekyllrb.com/",
		"https://nuxtjs.org/",
		"https://gohugo.io/",
	];

	// Create the options object (not required)
	const options = {
		axePuppeteerTimeout: 30000, // 30 seconds
		writeLogs: true, // Store audit data
		logDirectory: '.log', // Default audit data files stored at `.log`
		readFromLogDirectory: false, // Skip tests with existing logs
		// onlyCategories: ["performance", "accessibility"],
		chromeFlags: ['--headless'],
		freshChrome: "site", // or "run"
		launchOptions: {}, // Puppeteer launch options
	}

	// Run each site 3 times with default options
	console.log( await PerfLeaderboard(urls) );

	// Or run each site 5 times with default options
	console.log( await PerfLeaderboard(urls, 5) );

	// Or run each site 5 times with custom options
	console.log( await PerfLeaderboard(urls, 5, options) );
})();
  1. Run node sample.js.

Rankings

In the return object you’ll see a ranks object listing how this site compares to the other sites in the set. There are a bunch of different scoring algorithms you can choose from:

  • ranks.performance
    • The highest Lighthouse performance score.
    • Tiebreaker given to the lower SpeedIndex score.
  • ranks.accessibility
    • The highest Lighthouse accessibility score.
    • Tiebreaker given to lower Axe violations.
    • Second tiebreaker given to highest Axe passes (warning: each instance of an Axe rule passing is treated separately so this will weigh heavily in favor of larger pages)
  • ranks.hundos
    • The sum of all four Lighthouse scores.
    • Tiebreaker given to the lower Speed Index / Total Page Weight ratio.
  • ranks.cumulative (the same as hundos but with an Axe tiebreaker)
    • The sum of all four Lighthouse scores.
    • Tiebreaker given to the lower Axe violations.
    • Second tiebreaker given to the lower Speed Index / Total Page Weight ratio.
