I learned a valuable lesson about the state of the Internet throughout the rest of the world. Many of us are fortunate to live in high bandwidth regions, but there are still large portions of the world that do not. By keeping your client side code small and lightweight, you can literally open your product up to new markets.

2.16.0 Piwik app

Today Feb 14th, our Piwik 2.16.0 deployed on demo.piwik.org weights 2.5Mb of data (JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Images). 2.5Mb is much, too much. For many users in many parts of the world, loading 2.5Mb takes minutes, maybe 30min or 1 hour. As we wish to democratise and help everyone liberate their analytics data, we would be more successful in our mission if Piwik dashboard was lighter.

Piwik 3.0.0

During Piwik 3.0.0 development cycle, maybe we can take a look at the state of our client side application and see whether we can reduce some of the data being transferred to load the Piwik dashboard.
