Hi and welcome to our usual development links roundup!
Sometimes, the optimization of a WordPress installation can go through something you’d never think of. In this case, preventing the access to the regular RSS feed can dramatically reduce the load on your server, thus enhancing its performance.
If you’re like us, you’ll probably use a script to auto generate translation
.pot files for your theme/plugin. In our case, our Grunt script is based on the WP i18n package, but if you’d like another took to auto generate WordPress
.pot files via NPM Scripts or Gulp, WPAutoPot might work just as well.
We have a new theme in the works, and it will heavily rely on CSS transitions and animations. The
will-change is a relatively unknown property that can tell the browser to optimize an element that you know is going to be animated in the future.
That’s it for today, come back next week for more development links, or check again later this week for our design resources roundup!
