I’m busy working on a cool new plugin to let me chat directly with my customers. When I finally migrated the plugin over to my AWD site I found terrible performance.
I know it’s not poor performance from my code (I would be very embarrassed if it was!) so I set about finding out why AWD was suddenly running slowly.
Turns out it’s a plugin my manager John added recently called PushEngage. PushEngage lets you send browser notifications to your user – but you SHOULD NOT USE IT as the performance is dreadful at the moment.
Take a look at this video to see how bad performance becomes – this is on an 8GB RAM Digital Ocean droplet with 4-core CPU and yet the plugin adds about 30 seconds to page load.
He is always on at least one of his computers when he's awake, so get in touch and he'll get right back to you.
