    Optimize SVGs for Better Performance using svgo


    Just like a bitmap image, you can compress an SVG by removing various pieces of code that aren’t necessary to it rendering properly. This reduces file size & download time, ultimately leading to a faster page load speed. You’ll learn how to automate the process of compressing your SVGs using svgo in the command line.

    For a full list of options and plugins available to use with svgo, check out their documentation.

    Note: This lesson assumes you have npm installed.
