In February, my teammate Kelsey shared some updates on how we were making docs load and perform faster. And three weeks ago, Himanshu provided some insights into how we were making calculations faster in your docs. Today, I have the honor of providing our third installment in our series of updates confirming our commitment to making Coda more performant!
If you read Kelsey’s post closely, you may’ve noticed we were able to optimize a few types of columns to take up less space, so their docs load more quickly. We’ve expanded on that work so that docs with any of the following column typesーand interactive filters or controlsーshould load and perform even faster :
- Buttons & controls: We’ve made improvements to more columns and controls to take up less space in your docs. Docs with button, reaction, checkbox, slider, and scale column types and controls should now load faster; textbox controls also load more quickly
- Files & attachments: We’ve also optimized the file and image attachment column types to take up less space
The upgrades for these columns and controls have already begun rolling out to most docs, so you should notice a bit more speed already. We’re still running the numbers, but didn’t want to delay the good news while we put together some nice charts for this launch.
Enjoy your faster docs, and please keep letting us know where you’d like us to focus our efforts to improve performance next!
