Falco: an Open Source WebPageTest runner

Tools

Falco helps you monitor, analyze, and optimize your websites. Web Performance has become an important responsibility for Web developers. Indeed, there are many impacts of poor performance:

  • Your users are less engaged and are less likely to buy/use your product (source);
  • It can impact negatively the perception of your brand (source)
  • It can, and does, lead to exclusion of some users (source)
  • It leads to users buying new devices more often, causing an economical distress and environmental hazard (source)

At Theodo, they mainly use WebPageTest to conduct performance audits of their websites. While the tool is great, it became cumbersome to manually trigger tests as frequently as they wanted to, in addition to maintaining an external archive of all our past audits.

Theodo has built Falco to help them (and maybe you!) benefit from running regular and exhaustive WebPageTest audits, automatically.
