Hi. How are you? Just wanted to let you know that we’re going to do it! Wallace is going to be open for anyone to use this thing! It will be a hell of a journey, but let’s get started.
Before we start though, a small word of warning. This project will change and it will change a lot. Here’s a small breakdown of it:
- URI’s are going to change. No doubt about it. The current way they are used are too verbose and it would be nice to have cleaner, shorter URI’s but for now these have to do.
- The design will undergo some transformations here and there. Although the dark purple looks cool and has some character, the color scheme needs fixing and so does the general look and feel.
- Page layouts will very likely change to something more useful. The project overview page is now pretty cluttered with all kinds of graphs and the detail pages also could use some improvements here and there.
One thing that will not change a lot is the actual analysis of the CSS itself. All that is largely done and tested and will remain stable, apart from the occasional bug fix here and there.
So here we go: Project Wallace is live 🎉
A deep-dive in how the Analyze CSS page renders 6 times faster by applying 2 basic principles.
There's lots of places in CSS to have complexity, but we tend to focus on selectors most of the time. Let's have a look at other places too.
