saving a few hundred kilobytes and increasing the load times of your pages.
Thanks! I was obviously thinking about increasing loading speed when I wrote it :). I've corrected it.
Easy to understand write up for those who are unfamiliar with the power of Gulp. Great stuff Steve!
Thanks Daniel! Appreciate it :)
For even smaller image payloads, you should look into an image CDN like imgix which will do content negotiation to determine the smallest, least lossy way of serving up images. You can see image sizes decrease quite a bit on already-optimized PNGs: http://blog.imgix.com/post/90838796454/webp-jpeg-xr-progressive-jpg-support-w-auto
Thanks, looks really useful, especially with webp support. I'll consider implementing this next :).
This looks like magic.
Nice! curious why optimisations vs optimizations?
UK spelling vs US spelling. Some would say the difference is correct vs incorrect spelling... but I couldn't possibly comment :)
Couldn't have said it better myself!
Nice nice! I figured as much after looking around :)
Love it. Definitely something I need to be working on for my own website.
Pleeease looks useful, however it is just limited to CSS, so wouldn't eliminate the requirement for Gulp.
Yeah Sage's gulpfile looks very well layed out. I would definitely recommend gulp-load-plugins, I use it in my gulpfile, but didn't want to overcomplicate the article.
Oh, I certainly don't think Pleeease is a substitute for Gulp. I just use it as part of my Gulp process, where it's a substitute for the many separate CSS processes.
