I am proud to present the release of a new extension called page_speed. It renders the results of the Google’s PageSpeed Insights in the TYPO3 CMS backend.
What does it do
PageSpeed Insights is a very nice tool by Google to get feedback about the performance and usability of your website. You can try it by submitting a URL at developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights.
The following screenshot shows pretty good the integration of the API.
I especially like those information provided by the the service and the integration:
- Visual errors like too small fonts or too small links which are hard to click on mobile are highlighted in the screenshot.
- Multilingual description of all checks
Basically all you need is:
- TYPO3 CMS 7.2+
- A google account
A demo mode can be enabled in the configuration inside the Extension Manager which will show you a static result without the need of configuring anything!
Please follow the guidelines at github.com/georgringer/page_speed.
If you test this extension, please provide feedback by mail, twitter, fb, …! This helps a lot to improve further versions!
A big thanks to all contributors of TYPO3 CMS 7.x! It is so great to work with this foundation and it makes it so much easier to generate awesome backend modules now having bootstrap available!
