Carabiner, JS/CSS management library for CodeIgniter
Fewer HTTP Requests = Faster Site
Page load time is more important today than ever. It is estimated that more than 20% percent of a websites’ visitors, will abandon it if it takes more than 4 seconds to load. According to Steve Souders from the YAHOO! Developer Network:
80% of the end-user response time is spent on the front-end. Most of this time is tied up in downloading all the components in the page: images, style sheets, scripts, Flash, etc. Reducing the number of components in turn reduces the number of HTTP requests required to render the page. This is the key to faster pages.
Carabiner combines and minifies stylesheets and scripts
minifies, and caches assets. The cached files become invalidate as soon as we make a change in the original resource. When in development environment, in order not to get in the way of debugging, it simply includes references to the original assets .
