Spark CSS - How big is too big?

Posted 4 months ago by Kel_

Hey everyone,

I am investigating Spark and that I thought I would like to use Tailwind for the main body of my application.

I got it all working well, no problem there - thanks to laravel-mix-tailwind and mix (Wow - that stuff is good!!) but my app.css file is now 597Kb!

I mean I know there's a lot going on, but sheesh! That seems rather large!!

In these days when Google and others are penalising heavily for excessive web page load times, I feel that this is simply too big.

So, I have a couple of questions:

  1. Am I right? Or am I worrying about nothing?

  2. If I am right, does anyone have any suggestions on how to lighten the load a bit?

Thank you!
