I’ve never been totally happy with how the related posts block works. The problem is that rare and specific tags don’t rise to the top.
So I wrote a partial that does that, but I’m worried it’ll maybe be too slow. Is there a recommended way to check query speed, beyond deploying with a huge data set and then checking load times?
I guess I could run one of Chrome’s performance tools and see if there’s a measurable difference, after loading a bunch of junk content?
The main bottleneck here will be complex
get helper(s) that fetch/query a large number of posts, tags, and authors.
When running the theme locally using
ghost run -D, any slow
get helper queries will be logged to the console.
Yeah, I don’t get a warning (at least for this number of posts, but was hoping for something a little less binary. I guess I’ll load up a ton of content and see if it breaks! :)
I know that Ghost(Pro) uses Varnish for caching, but I’m sure if it would help this case or not. You might test the performance on Ghost(Pro) vs self-hosted.
