v0.3.0 of lirc_web has just been published to npm.
This release targets mobile optimizations and performance. lirc_web now behaves more like a native app when added to the home screen of a mobile device. A favicon is now shown on the home screen, the URL bar will be hidden from view, and lirc_web will be selectable from the device’s multitasking screen. Furthermore, CSS assets are bundled into a single request, small images are now base64 encoded, and an application cache has been introduced to cache all assets locally between requests.
In my testing, with a warm cache, lirc_web now fires a load event within 300ms.
Here’s the relevant piece of CHANGELOG.md that describes all updates since v0.2.0:
