Open source Libraries and File Sizes


This list compares sizes of development and production version of libraries with and without compression. The compression schemes used for comparison are:

  1. Brotli-11 - The best in class for compressing resources over HTTP. The data is taken from PageCDN's implementation of brotli compression for respective libraries. PageCDN applies different compression level for different types of assets. For public resources, brotli-11 compression is used.
  2. Common Compression - This data is collected while these libraries are served from different open source CDNs including Google Hosted Libraries, Microsoft Ajax CDN, CDNJS, jsDelivr, unpkg and some branded CDNs provided by libraries.

Below are the most commonly used open source libraries and their file sizes. All these libraries are available on the PageCDN's Public CDN.
