Should we have a category for performance?

I noticed some terrible timings for loading a couple SVG in my app. Like nearly a 1 sec wait (TTFB) for each of them. Why so bad? Just because Meteor is terrible at serving up static resources? Is moving them to CDN the best next step? Any best practice guides on how to do that?

I think the best way to optimize icons is to save your svg’s in a spritesheet, include that spritesheet by default on all pages (hidden of course) and use references to it when you need an icon.

Sacha created a build plugin for that particular reason more than a year ago, I haven’t used it in a while, but it should work or at least with a few tweaks here and there: Compiling SVGs with the Build Plugins API
