It’s no secret that Magento 2 is a powerful ecommerce platform. However, it can come with some drawbacks, such as a large amount of unnecessary CSS code that can slow down your website. Fortunately, there are a few ways to reduce the amount of unused CSS and optimize your store’s performance.
Magento 2 offers a built-in Cleanup tool to remove any code that isn’t used. To access it, the user must log into their Magento admin panel and go to “System > Tools > CSS Preprocessing > Cleanup”. It’s also important to optimize the store’s CSS structure by organizing the most important styles at the top and the least important ones at the bottom. Unused stylesheets can be removed by going to “System > Configuration > Advanced > Developer > CSS Settings” and selecting the unused stylesheets and clicking “Remove”.
Minifying the CSS files is also a great way to reduce the size of the store’s pages and speed up loading times. This can be done using a tool such as Gulp. Additionally, using a content delivery network (CDN) can store the CSS files on servers around the world, thus reducing the amount of bandwidth used and speeding up loading times.
By following these steps, users of Magento 2 can optimize their store’s performance and make their pages load faster.
