And the results are in

I just tested Lilina on my laptop which had a few programs running, just to get a fairly accurate time on the loading (my computer is bogged down).

The results were amazing:

  • 3.12 seconds on the first go
  • 1.07 seconds on reload

These times are incredible compared to old loading times of 10 seconds for one feed.

There are some important things to note however:

  • HTMLPurifier uses a lot of CPU and memory resources
    • As the author says: “Precisely why you need to cache HTMLPurifier’s output”
    • However, Lilina does not cache HTMLPurifier’s output. This must be fixed
  • Lilina isn’t finished yet, so the times may be inaccurate.
  • Loading times are dependant on the speed of the server’s connection:
    The faster the server, the less time needed to load

Now, once I get the OPML import up and running, I will be able to test for security flaws.

  1. I apologize for this off-topic comment, but strange happenings with Lilina and Atom feeds in the past couple of days. At first I thought it might have been a problem specific to Blogspot and Blogger, but I’m seeing it with other sites that publish an Atom feed:

    Lilina is no longer properly sorting chronologically. Instead, it is displaying the latest post from a particular blog with all other posts from that blog marked with the same publication date and time as the latest post.

    (See here.)

    I even made a fresh install (the link above) to make sure that it wasn’t a matter of my data files getting corrupted.

    I’m at a loss to identify the problem. RSS feeds are working just fine. Has something changed with Atom standards in the past couple of days? Any other explaination? Any recommended fix?

  2. Hmm, that’s very weird.

    I’m not sure if it’s a Magpie bug or a Lilina bug, so I’ll do some tests and get back to you.

  3. It’s a problem related to Blogger Beta. When you switch to Beta, your feed will republish the last 25 stories on whatever aggregator your blog is listed on. It will only happen on the day of the switch to Beta (or whenever your blog is added to a new aggregator); after that, things will run normally. We’ve had the problem several times at http://www.micronations.net where we run Lilina. After a day, when the affected blogs published new articles, everything was fine.

  4. PS. The new Lilina system is much much better than the old one. Good work.

  5. Thanks for your comments Liam.

    Just out of interest, where is your copy located? If you don’t want to publish the link publicly, please contact me via the support page. Found it. I’d be interested in incorporating that theme with Lilina via the new templating system.

  6. Things seem to have gone a bit quiet of late. Is everything ok?

  7. Everything is fine.
