#13259 closed enhancement (fixed)

Use layers/builds on

All pages on requires a lot of dojo modules, which are loaded synchronous. From a fairly good connection here in Sweden each one of those requests takes about 200 ms. As an example, the main page includes 30 modules which adds up to 6 seconds of exdra loading time. In total the main page takes almost 9 seconds for me to load (measured using firebug).

This does not give a good first impression for some one who is visiting the site. You should really consider using layers/builds instead of loading all modules on the fly.

See for more info ;)

I can't see any change. Attached a screenshot of the "Net" tab in Firebug after loading main page.

admittedly, the files have not been built into a single layer but if you look at the contents you'll see that they've been built. this scenario is the equivalent of using dojo from CDN. this highlights one of the disadvantages of using dojo from a CDN - you still have a lot of requests - but its a way of using dojo that is acceptable.

assigning back to itorrey to respond or close appropriately
