Introducing Better Resource Hints, a Performance-Enhancing Plugin for WordPress

(Alex MacArthur) #1

Hi, a while back I posted about my experimentation with asset preloading in WordPress. I had so much fun with it that I turned it into a plugin!

Better Resource Hints leverages preloading and other resource hints like prefetch, preconnect, and server push to optimize WordPress performance. It’s designed to do some good baseline optimization out of the box and then allow for more complex configuration if anyone needs it.

I challenge you to give an installation and run your site through Google Lighthouse or some other similar tool. Feel free to shoot me feedback. I’d like to make it as useful as possible!
