Discussion on: Frontend Metrics: CSS Specificity

Right now I have a lot of these just running in a script locally. I am working on getting it to run nightly and pull all the metrics I've currently got.

The company I work at has frontend and backend "guilds" which are cross-team groups interested in the respective topics. We are using the metrics to inform our choices in the frontend guild.

We actually just reduced our CSS by like 50% (which showed up in the metrics dashboard) by conditionally loading some vendor CSS. It was pretty cool!

I do think having some of this in CI can be really helpful - especially around like JS chunk sizes and package additions. It helps prevent package bloat :D
