Breaking the PageSpeed Barrier with Bootstrap

I recently had the pleasure to listen to Ilya Grigorik give a talk at Velocity in NYC on Breaking the 1000ms Mobile Barrier. During the talk, Ilya usedPageSpeed Insights to demonstrate that several high profile websites had overlooked some very simple and common optimizations and resulted in poor PageSpeed scores. For the unfamiliar, Pagespeed Insights is a web based tool created by Google that analyzes the content of a web page, then generates suggestions to make that page faster.

After Ilya’s talk ended, I started to think more about why performance always seems to be an afterthought with developers. As I pondered this thought, I kept coming back to the following question:

How hard is it to get a perfect PageSpeed Insights score?

For a long time that I’v wanted to install logstalgia….
Todays is the day!

So, we need to download Xcode 5.1.1 (Mountain Lion) from

ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"
brew install wget
tar -zxvf logstalgia*.gz
cd logstalgia*

brew install pkg-config glew sdl2 SDL2_image sdl SDL_image boost GLM freetype pcre
make install

This should do the work.


Other way to install is using MacPorts – logstalgia @ macports -.

Via terminal

sudo port -p -u install "nolstalgia"

Using GUI?
You can try jportsui Java based, graphical user interface to MacPorts 2.0+.


If you have an old GCC verion (prior to 4.6) you might get the following errors…

Unfortunately while making “make” I had an error f*ck!

cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option "-Wno-unused-but-set-variable"
cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option "-std=gnu++0x"
make: *** [src/logstalgia-ncsa.o] Error 1

According to some pages GCC is to old. We need GCC 4.6, mine is 4.2.1.

gcc version 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build 5658) (LLVM build 2336.11.00)
