Home / Diary of a solo dev building a web app / Day 29: optimizing file representation and s3 edit
Try Documentalist, my app that offers fast, offline access to 190+ programmer API docs.

This is a dev diary of implementing Filerion, a web-based file manager for online storage (Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, s3 and more).
Performance matters. It matters to me and it matters to users of my software.
The path to performance if having performance culture when programming.
To me it boils down to: be mindful about performance of the code you write and improve the performance when you see a way to do it and it doesn’t cost too much.
I found a way to optimize how I represent files / directories in JavaScript and speed up sending s3 listing.
By themselves, those optimizations might have little impact.
I do believe that many optimizations with small impact will compound into large impact.
I’m committed to making Filerion as fast as possible.
