While lots of people think of CI/CD as something that lets developers deploy software faster and more frequently, let us not forget about its core principle: testing. Without testing, it is impossible to keep high standards of the code which constitutes the website. However, testing does not stop with deployment. Once our application is on the server, it should be constantly monitored for performance. Performance is one of the key factors that determine the position of the website in Google, the difference between life or death in online business.
For this, we can use Lighthouse, an open-source tool allowing developers to run performance audits on their websites. Buddy incorporates this tool as a dedicated action that you can use recurrently for round-the-clock coverage, or after every deployment to check the impact of changes on the website.
