Bundling in visual studio 2012 for web optimization
Following images show the same situation over there.
Here you can see total 25 files loaded into the system and it's almost more than 1MB of total size. As we need to have our web application of site very responsive and need to have high performance application/site, this will be a performance bottleneck to our site. In situation like this, the bundling feature of Visual Studio 2012 and ASP.NET 4.5 comes very handy. With the help of this feature we do optimization there and we can increase performance of our application.
To enable this feature in Visual Studio 2012 we just made debug=”false” in web.config of our application like following.
Now once you enable this feature and run this application in the browser to see your traffic it will have less items like following.
As you can see in the above image there are only 8 items. So after enabling bundling it will automatically convert all js and css files into the one request. Isn’t that cool feature? This feature will surely going to have great impact on performance. Hope you like it. Stay tuned for more.. Till then happy programming!!
