localStorage Script Caching With basket.js

Downloading JavaScript files halts rendering and downloading of other files, and therefore can add significant amounts of time to your website’s downloading speed. Adding your scripts into your footer and using script loaders can help, but a new project is looking to make things even faster by caching in localStorage.

This is my first blog post ever, which goes without saying that this is my first blog post on this blog. I figure I’ll start off strong with a new development in JavaScript. If you’ve gotten into JavaScript development and also tried enhancing performance on sites that use Javascript, you probably already know that when the browser downloads a JavaScript file, it is executed immediately. While JavaScript is being executed, the browser will stop downloading resources such as images and style sheets. This can be really painful on sites that use a large amount of JavaScript because it can seem to bring the browser to a halt.
