Minimalist WordPress Template
Big Dot Framework 2.0 is also available as a WordPress template. The template is still being develop but already features basic functionality, which allows you to edit the content, change the navigation and use the blog.
The framework is also compatible with Perch. Perch is a lightweight content management system which allows you to edit the content on the pages and use the blog, but doesn’t allow you to edit the navigation. If you’re looking for the ultimate optimised site with a CMS, perch is the best answer as WordPress requires much more external code, which does affect the sites performance.
Google Page Speed
The speed at which a page loads is a really important factor for a website. Faster sites give a better user experience, especially for people using a slow internet connect. On top of this, Google actually give more favourable search results to sites that are speed and usability optimised. Their own page speed insight tool scores websites on a scale of 1-100 for desktop site speed, mobile site speed and mobile usability. Big Dot Framework 2.0 has a perfect score 100 / 100 for desktop speed, mobile speed and mobile usability! We’re very proud of this score and have yet to find a site that comes close to it!
We employed the following techniques to optimise the site for speed:
- Optimised Images
- Server side compression (GZip)
- Minified HTML & CSS
- No render-blocking CSS
- Browder Caching
Loads of features built in a clean and simple way
