Optimizing WordPress with WP Optimize
Installing WP Optimize
WP Optimize can be installed by including the script in the project where you want to use it. You can also include it using composer.
Within the script, you have to pass an array of configurations to specify which optimizations you want to implement.
The WP Optimize script is very useful if you are a nitpicker and want to optimize a WordPress website to great lenghts, and achieve a Pagespeed score of 100.
The WP Optimize Script should be handled with care, as it can break websites. Optimizing WordPress can be overdone! It can also limit functionalities used by plugins.
Documentation on the installation and usage of WP Optimize can be found on Github.
