The Cost of Javascript Frameworks

A murb'ed feed, posted about 3 years ago filed in javascript, framework, react, vue, jquery, angular, review, performance, speed & download.

There is no faster (pun intended) way to slow down a site than to use a bunch of JavaScript.

The thing about JavaScript is you end up paying a performance tax no less than four times:

  • The cost of downloading the file on the network
  • The cost of parsing and compiling the uncompressed file once downloaded
  • The cost of executing the JavaScript
  • The memory cost

The combination is very expensive.
