How can we make a faster Ghost?

Yeah, I know there are gatsby and netlify but still, it’s a bit hard to set up and also there will be a recurring cost with netlify. DO is doing great with $10.

I want to know what different thing ghost community do to make their site faster? Like image caching or so.

Some things you can do:

  • Examine your JS and CSS bundles to ensure they aren’t too large and possibly split them up into core bundles that must be loaded and defer loading of other bundles
  • Make sure Responsive Image feature is in use in your theme
  • Optimize the images you have currently or set up an image optimizing service
  • Set up a CDN for static assets
  • Set up an in-memory cache like Varnish
