Speeding up the site

The last few months have been super busy for me and I didn’t really have time for FPC. At the same time, the site has grown substantially, which is of course great! There are almost 6000 users, that have added over 400,000 inks and roughly 120,000 pens! Add to that all the other features, and it might not be a surprise that the site has gotten slower. So much so, that it’s become problematic and without some work, the site would start breaking, soon!

Luckily, I now have more time to devote to this and I’ve spent the last days on speeding up the slowest part of the site. That includes the ink search, the public brands page, as well as all the data that’s being displayed on the dashboard. I will continue monitoring this and maybe pick a few pages that are too slow to my linking.

After that I will of course continue working on FPC and I’ll get back to adding new features.
