Why Devto is so slow from China?

Is it stable and quick? Or is it slow only from China?

It's only slow in China (I'm in Shanghai). Dev.to is using something that disagrees with the GFW. I am not a web developer otherwise I might attempt a PR to fix it. As a work-around it works best if you visit dev.to from a country outside of China. ;)

I don't think the GFW accepts PRs.

Someday... someday....

Incidentally, Xijinping is in Shanghai the beginning of November. If I run into him at KFC I'll share my tips for firewall configuration.

Probably due to RFC 1149.

It's unsurprising. With such a large surface area of technologies used to serve the site, it's almost inevitable that one of them isn't going to play well with the GFW.

🌚 Browsing with dark mode makes you a better developer by a factor of exactly 40.

It's a scientific fact.
