I had been careless about image formats on my website, but I decided to put some work and convert them all to WebP. Also, I got the Nord color scheme to work on my code!
Oh right I forgot to mention you @tdarb but I guess that's not necessary anymore lol, thanks for the inspiration :P
@joel I recently learned about the 11ty image plugin and set it up with a short code to automatically generate webp and jpg images, resize them and display the appropriate one for the browser.
I just made a short code to make it easy
It really changed the game in media management for me with static sites!
@joel what are the benefits of webp? every time i download an image and it ends up being webp instead of like a jpg or a png i get angry hahaha
@isa It can be compressed so much more without any real quality loss. I think I will provide both tho, it should not be hard to implement as jekyll can do something similar to what @rridley is doing with hugo shortcodes, using _includes. I will look into providing both formats and change it depending on browser support and such.
@isa It looks like @m2m already has a Jekyll setup to provide both file formats, so I'll pretty much copy paste it lol https://minutestomidnight.co.uk/blog/implementing-webp-images-in-jekyll/
@m2m i got so excited when you mentioned devtools but then i realized it's a chrome/chromium only thing 😅 at least you've found a workaround!!
@isa actually I seem to remember the first dev tools were in an early Firefox extension. Today each browser has a set of inspectors called dev tools. If I remember correctly that first extension was called webmaster tools, but I might be wrong. It's icon was a grey cog.
