Performance issue: compression tools, using CDN[edit]

Compression tools to reduce the file size of javascript

Using CDN (Content Delivery Network)

//If the javascript library hosted at CDN was failed to connect, it will switch to local javascript file automatically.

<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script>!window.jQuery && document.write('<script src="local-js-path/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"><\/script>');</script>

<script src="" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script>!window.jQuery.ui && document.write('<script src="local-js-path/jquery-ui-effects.custom-1.9.2.min.js"><\/script>');</script>

troubleshooting steps[edit]

  1. Using the javascript library?
    • Is the function was supported by the version of javascript library? Deprecated?
    • Try to upgrade or downgrade the version of javascript library. Easy to switch the version: JSFiddle or JS Bin
  2. Checking browser compatibility
  3. Javascript location: (1)JavaScript in <head> or <body> ex: .click(), (2)JavaScript in <input> tag or other DOM elements' tag ex: <button type="button" onclick="myFunction()" id="buttonId">Try it</button>[12]
