And the results are in

And the results are in

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

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.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all Lilina users!

With the new year, I thought I’d give a run-down of the new features in Lilina 1.0:

  • New admin panel
  • Plugin & Templating system
  • Faster loading times
  • Support for enclosures and podcasts
  • Abilty to rename feeds
  • Configuration via a web-interface
  • Default configuration kept in inc/core/conf.php
  • User settings kept in settings.php
  • RSS and Atom output
  • Caching of the front page
  • XHTML Output
  • Sanitizing feeds – No platypuses turning up in the middle of your pages
  • Proper OPML importing: Doesn’t overwrite your current feeds
  • Database support (Note: not full support, but support)

Plus more ;)
