I’m working on improving images performance and I’ve got mind-blowing results with a combination of avif, webp, jpg using the HTML5 picture and source. The code is still clean and simple; it doesn’t add a mess in the template or anything.
The only problem I’ve got is a Publii default behaviour which is to delete any medias that aren’t uploaded via the software (if I understand that part correctly) which is a bummer.
I know, some users (including myself) have already requested more support for next-gen images support in Publii (thanks for adding up webp to the list! ♥), but it’s not enough anymore. Webp is not supported on older MAC devices and avif has come a long way with massive improvements that sheds MB of images; it’s an amazing, free, SEO and users experience.
The suggest is as follow: can we have some kind of switch that would change the default behaviour of cleaning “unused” medias that would otherwise be automatically deleted upon saving and syncing a project?
